The Whisky Tasting Club

Port Charlotte An Turas Mor, 46% ABV

Nose: Victorian London, all sooty smoke, smoggy, with an assortment of aromas from stale fish and over ripe fruit to cooking fires.

Palate: Sweet at first, balanced and easy with gooseberries poached in cream, then the trademark smoke and peat but not as fierce and aggressive as in the past. You’re expecting Jack The Ripper, you get the Artful Dodger. Get over it though, because it’s a beauty.

Finish: Peat, pear and green fruit, in an enjoyable but pussy cat finish.

The PC An Tura Mor is the Islay representative in our Regions of Scotland tasting, which is the first tasting you get if you sign up for regular tastings, or can be bought straight away from here. Other views are on our forum, please post your own take on this whisky – Ed.
