The PC11 Eòrna Na H-alba has just been released, but were are trhing the 2012 release of the PC10. The PC10 was the last one to be released under the old stewardship, before Rémy Cointreau took over.

The nose is again surprisingly sweet. Sugared apple skin, hazelnuts and even apple sauce. The whole is wrapped in sweet peat and tobacco leaves. Hints of soot and mint. Very, very pleasant. Adding water makes the sweetness take a bow to the more typical stable scents. Still lovely!

It is very spicy on the palate. Loads of peat, pepper and tar. The second tier brings back all the sweetness. Apart from the aforementioned fruit I also get some sand cookies and white fruit. Honey too. It evolves from smoky and spicy to warm and sweet. Even after adding some water, turning the peat a little sharper, it remains sweet.

The finish is long, warm with loads of honey versus salt at the death.

Grand PC that chases away the darkness on these winter nights.
