SMWS Port Charlotte, 127.40, Mango chicken vindaloo

This baby seems to have hit SMWS bars only and perhaps isn’t destined for an outturn at all.  If you picked up a bottle somehow you did well, and if you see it in an outturn, score one ASAP.  Those I split a bottle with should be enjoying their drams about now!

SMWS 127.40, Mango chicken vindaloo, Port Charlotte, 12 years old, 63% A⊕

159 bottles, refill bourbon, 21st June 2002.

20150102_173844Nose - Classic PC. Intense barley, very sweet, dusty, bright peat, lemon cereal. Intense but gentle for a society PC. Lovely musky toffee notes and yes, chicken curry with fried turmeric and cardamom. With water, surprise floral toffee and beautiful musky wood.

Body - Intense sherbet lemon, lemon zest, toffee and gunpowder.

Finish - Very long, spicy lemon zest, sherbet dib dabs and fruit toffees.

Very special.
