Great peat and lengthy smoke, a massive rush through salt and sea toward the woody foreshore. The volume of the wine influence surprised me and an orchid tinged note lingers a bit too long. The character of the peaty spirit doesn?t ascend as far as in the Uigeadail which it achieves using sherry rather than the PC7?s ACE?d wine finish. A stunning dram and one which has the potential to reveal more of itself before the next expression appears.

The cashier told me most people bought PC7 to resell later, at a margin. Big mistake... The experience is worth the premium paid after all the PC6 hype. Sweet nose with a very smooth welcome on the palate despite high alcohol...then POW, the peat hits you at the back of the tongue even where a 20 Talisker has failed. Long finish and overwhelming. If anything, its not as complex as other Islay heavyweights, but very mature for its age.
