PC6 vs PC7

Postby Gooner » Fri Feb 06, 2009 12:52 am

soz if this has been discussed, please point me to where if it has.

I'm currently drinking Port Charlotte 6 and 7 concurrently and they are surprisingly different. To me the 6 tastes more of barley and the 7 of peat, but the nose is more rounded on the 6. Not one to write tasting notes, but I'd appreciate anyones feedback so I can see if I can pick up any suggested features.

I've got a PC6 opened now and won't be able to compare it with a PC7 till my shipment of it comes early next week. :wink:

Cheers!

From what i've read the PC6 is ex-bourbon matured then ACEd in Madeira whereas the PC7 is a mix of ex-bourbon and ex-sherry matured whisky.

thats interesting, I'd assumed they were produced by a similar mix and were just different by age. I like doing pairwise tests, the ardbeg range got me into into it. Personally, I prefer pc7 to 6, only had a dram of the 5 on islay so cant really compare it, but remember it being very nice.

I'd love to do a comparison too but no one has PC7 in Oz :( . I do have PC6, Infinity and 3D3 open and it is very interesting to see just how much of the PC's character was evident in both.

I have tasted the PC6 & PC7 side by side, the sherry vatting of the PC7 does it no justice imo.
