Port Charlotte 7
Strength: 61 %
Port Charlotte 7 may be the meatiest whisky ever: sizzling maple bacon, pork chops, glazed ham with orange clove sauce, hickory smoke barbecue sauce. A big, big whisky that grows in the mouth, turning dirty and smoky. A bit thick at just 7 years old, but a nice sticky mouth-feel and incredibly huge flavor. Big, lingering finish. A dram of this whisky is a little like what I imagine dinner for a fat, eighteenth century English nobleman was like (minus the fowl).
The Port Charlottes are highly boutique, so don't expect to find them at your corner "Chubby's Package Store." Expensive too, so I recommend seeking these out at whisky tastings. Just make sure they are among the last whiskies you try. 96 points (A).
