The whisky barrel 12 yo port Charlotte

This is yet another sample I was fortunate to taste from the recent TWB Burn’s Malt range of single casks. There’s also a funny story here. You see, when I got all 3 samples each said 25 year old, which was quite true for the Aultmore, but a bit suspicious for a Port Charlotte, which has not been bottling whisky …

SMWS 127.39 ‘Intensely Tasty’ (Port Charlotte 11 year old)

Not long ago I reviewed two other SMWS PCs – 127.37 ‘Dinosaurs dancing to Stravinsky (which was EPIC) and 127.40  –  Mango chicken vindaloo, which again was excellent. It’s quite clear I am fond of young PCs, and I wonder how this one will going to be when we compare it to those two monsters. At 11 years old and …

SMWS 127.40[Port Charlotte] – Mango chicken vindaloo

This is not a new SMWS edition, it’s from the Feb batch or so. I am quite a fan of Port Charlotte, when it comes to peaty whiskies. It’s not a secret I drink less and less heavily peated drams on a daily basis, I guess a palate or mood change, but sometimes when the weather is right, or when …

The new Port Charlotte PC 12 (Travel Retail) – Review

I can’t believe Port Charlotte 12 is out, It seems like yesterday when the baby PC5 came out, and it was HUGE. This toddler is now a teenager, and I am loving the way it developed over the years. This is the oldest PC EVER (there are a few Indie PC of the same age).
Yesterday’s Octomore TR edition (7.2) proved …

SMWS 127.37 ‘Dinosaurs dancing to Stravinsky’ port Charlotte 9 yo  – Review

It’s Winter, and the night are quite cool, as cool as they get in our neck of the woods… Yes, It’s not Canada cold (more like Canadian spring), but it’s the perfect time to sit back and relax with a lovely peat monster. That’s exactly what I’ve been doing lately, and this wee sample was sitting patiently waiting to get …

Port Charlotte Islay barley – Review

After reviewing the Octomore Islay Barley, it’s time for it’s “little brother” the Port Charlotte Islay barley.  Harvested in September 2008 from the farms at Coull, Kynagarry, Island, Rockside, Starchmill & Sunderland, peated to 40 PPM, then distilled in December of the same year, it is also around 5 years of age, diluted to 50% then bottled.

Port Charlotte 12 year old–The Maltman

Been a while since I tasted a new cask from the Maltman, and every time it’s fun with this cool little IB. Port Charlotte, I love Port Charlotte, and this is the oldest PC I’ve tasted to date, it’s the oldest around I think. PC11 OB was brilliant, so how is one more year and a different cask will affect …

Port Charlotte PC11 (Travel Retail edition)

Bruicladdich released this PC11 along with Octomore 6,2 (watch this space for tasting notes coming soon!) a few months back to the travel retail market. This is the first time Port Charlotte or Octomore are sold there AFAIK, but there is a catch : They did not release it to the UK travel retail market ,perhaps because of the very …

Tasting Port Charlotte PC10

It’s time for an OB Port Charlotte tasting note isnt’t it? the last time I’ve posted such a tasting note it was for the lovely PC7. Since then I’ve tasted the PC9 (no notes, just for fun) and a few indie PCs  (here and here ) which were crackers. I love this profile of highly peated Laddie, one notch before …
