The Perfect Measure
10 Year Old
Excellente. The most complex entry level Islay I've had. Extrememely well balanced for those who appreciate a lot of peat smoke in their whisky. There's a hell of a lot of good stuff going on here, and peat is only the half of it, at most. 4.5/5.0
Odd. Definitely get a blast of TCP and Wrights Coal Tar Soap. Very strange. Lots of smoke at the finish, which is really nice. Not sure about this one yet....it will have to grow on me..
Quite good, a solid mix of peat and richness. There's a bit of fruitiness that isn't mentioned in the flavor profile above. I'm not the biggest fan of Islay malts but this definitely holds it's own as among my favorites from the island.
Good quality whisky. The tasting notes are spot on. At full strength the flavours are masked a little for me, with predominantly the Alcohol and peat dominating. With a little water (not to much) it opens up on the nose, where you get sea salt, seaweed and all the smells of the beach. The taste intensifies without the initial alcoholic punch you get neat and the finish is where the peat lingers longest along with salt and some sweet fruit. The iodine is subtle and you need to search a little for it. It’s a big whisky for the price.
When I buy whisky, I almost never buy anything but Islay as I love strong, bold, smoky flavours. I picked up the Port Charlotte gift set while on offer as I hadn’t tried it previously. I can safely say that I will now ALWAYS have a bottle of this in the cabinet. It’s sweet, salty, very smoky and has a subtle burn with a nice up front punch. Possibly in my top 3 Islay malts personally.
