Whisky Online Auctions Tasting Notes: Port Charlotte 2004. Cask #905. 53.1%
Nose: Rich, clean and pure with a very precise balance of peat, coal smoke, oils and coastal character. Very briny, soft notes of lemon juice, farmy touches and some increasingly pure medicinal notes. Lots of raw antiseptic, bandages, gauze and embrocations. The medicine really developed impressively while still retaining this triumvirate balance of peat, salt and smoke.
Palate: Soft peat with some fragrant bonfire smoke, green pepper, brine, soot and sheep wool. Rather oily in texture and still very towards coastal characteristics with seawater and saline minerality. Well balanced and retaining a similar freshness as on the nose. Develops notes of hessian, anthracite smoke, tar and smoked fish.
Finish: Long and rather ashy with lemon peel, sea salt and pure peat smoke.
Comments: An excellent and very classical Port Charlotte sitting at a nice strength that is ready to bottle now or within the next 1-2 years.
Although a condition report is normally included in the Lot description, we do recommend viewing/close inspection prior to placing any bids. If this is not an option and you have questions beyond the offered description and images, please use the form below "Ask A Question" to make specific enquiries or to receive a more in-depth condition report. Otherwise, Lots will be sold as seen and described.
Please note: due to the various ages of bottles, corks and their seals, condition of liquid is at the buyer's discretion. And no claim can be lodged against failure/leakage in transit.
All bottles are checked by our whisky specialists Wayne & Harrison Ormerod prior to any auction. We do not auction opened bottles so therefore all items are sealed unless stated under certain circumstances where seals were never issued by the producer.
No item is deemed new, however many items are generally in good condition. When this is not the case, we aim to mention any faults in the description. The images supplied are of the actual item you will receive. If the filling level of the liquid is not visible in the images provided, we aim to indicate the current position in the description. If the filling level is impossible to determine, such as with ceramics decanters, we will provide an overall weight of the decanter in KG. Our filling level guideline can be found here.
All information in this listing is provided to the best of our knowledge including when we chose to date the age of a bottle. If you are unhappy with the listing or believe there is an error/discrepancy, you should notify us immediately and we will address the Lot accordingly. Placing a bid confirms you have checked the Lot and are satisfied.
If you have any questions regarding this item, please send us a message and we will get back to you as soon as possible. All questions must be submitted no later than 6 hours before the end of the auction to guarantee a response.
