NAM - Excellent peaty scotch for the price!!!
I was visiting my local shop and was having a hard decision between Lagavulin and the Port Charlotte. The scotch expert stated Port Charlotte is so full of peat smoke no cigars are needed. I took a chance, bought it and love it! If you do not like peaty scotch stay away, you will be disappointed in the aroma and flavor. If you do like peat, place this one on your shelf!

Among Laphroaig, Ardbeg, and most other Islays I've tried thus far (not a huge ton, mostly entry-level bottlings) this is one of my favorites. The only other I have a close fondness for as close as this might be Lagavulin, though it is quite different. This PC is complex, the nose is of youths fighting on a snowy day outside the pub - differing scents vying for attention creating a somewhat turbulent complexity. Takes 5-10 minutes or so to open up - the first sip after pouring does indeed taste a little dull and alcoholic-y (in my opinion, at least), but give it a little time and the nose and taste really start to come out.

Requested this as a Christmas present hoping it would be like Port Charlotte Peat Project. It is not, very disappointing, little taste, nose and body, the worst expression of Port Charlotte I have come across. Will have to return to Octomore and Smokehead for my peat fix.
