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.

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.

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.

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!

5 stars
