BTC: Sample 16 (No guess)

Yesterday I was trying to post my vote at the last minute when my network connection died on me. So, in the end I didn’t fill in my sample for that night. This was a bummer since I was on the right track, doubting between Ledaig and Port Charlotte.

Nose:
A very heavy, beefy peat bomb. Sickly sweet but also some Lapsang Souchong tea. I knew it was a sherry cask, but I also thought to taste some sherry (not always necessarily so) and bacon.

Taste:
Fiery, like burning wood, but soon it gets sweeter with some peach. It does get a bit thin after that initial blast until only some charcoal remains.

Finish:
This is surprisingly smooth! It has some warm Christmassy flavours with fruits, spices and Christmas cake.

Port Charlotte 7, SMWSI have to admit that I was considering Port Charlotte, but after popping a few corks from the cupboard I decided it would be a quite atypical one. I was thinking about Ledaig, but the younger ones weren’t this complex in my opinion. That made me doubt and postpone my guess until my network didn’t approve of drinks-browsing anymore.

Port Charlotte 7, SMWS, “A night at the fair-ground”, 08-2003 – 2011, 67% (!), Refill sherry butt

A fantastic dram. I hope it wasn’t available in the Netherlands, otherwise I’d beat myself up about not getting one!
