This one was matured in 3 casks, bourbon, sherry and French wine.

Murray's Taste Notes:


Color: Light gold

Nose
: Peat infused with buickwheat honey, Robertson's orange marmalade and seaweed encrusted with mild oak tannin.

Taste: Full-bodied, intense medicine cabinet hues, mouth-filling with "aude de iodine". The peat dances a jig on the palate.

Finish:Long, the peat layers with smoke and ash yielding fireplace reminiscences.

Comments
: A robust peaty dram with a youthful air and prone to leave an impression.

Score: 82.5

Interesting to see how tastes differ, I think the Port Charlotte 10 is a superb whisky and I rated it 93/100, but it does push the limits on value though, £57 here for a bottle.

Thanks for your comment Alistair. In my view this whisky is a good one and worth trying but it didn't make the figural earth move for me. I have tasted so many fine Islay drams lately at the super-premium level that perhaps I have become a bit jaded. Wink There are many PC editions that came out after this one and I would certainly like to have the opportunity to try some of them. Cheers.
