A superb independant bottling of Port Charlotte Single Malt Whisky by Woolf Sung under their own Artful Dodger label. This is a cask strength, single cask 8 year old, that has been fully matured in a Sauternes cask.
This is up there with the best whiskies we've tried this year. Really opulent and fruity on the nose with apricot, nectarine, lychee and a dense savoury earthiness.
The palate is big and rich, that fruity element really hits you on arrival, before the power and smoke of this Islay whisky comes through. Chewy and textured with lots of thick smokey quality along with a damp forest flavour before the sweet fruit returns on the finish.
This whisky can take a bit of water which calms the abv down and brings out more citrus and woody notes. The finish is incredibly long and lingering.
An absolute must for any peat fan.
