Port Charlotte Scottish Barley Single Malt Whisky Tasting Notes;
On the nose; Opening with assertive waves of peat smoke. A swell of aromatics flood the senses with notes of iodine, salty canvas, crushed sea shells, charred oak staves, black pepper, paprika and leather tobacco pouches.
The second wave brings vanilla, figs and soft plump dates, marinated pear, freshly milled malt, dark sweet toffee and cracked walnuts. It’s smoky, smouldering and It’s sensuous. Just close your eyes and inhale long and deep.
This is aromatic awesomeness.
Palate; Wow! Waves of the sweetest, smoothest, warmest smokiest spirit that you have ever experienced flood onto the palate. It is potent, focused and the flavours explode brilliantly onto the palate.
Full of depth and complexity, the smokey sweetness of the barley contrasts beautifully with the marine freshness of the spirit and the richness of toffee and vanilla.
The complexity is enhanced further with a citrus twist and then mellow oak tempers the fire.
Award Winning Whisky.
