Dram Review: Rest & Be Thankful Port Charlotte Aged 13 Years

[63.5%・13 Years Old・Distilled in 2002・Bottled in 2016・Rest & Be Thankful Bottling・Cask No. 0007・Single Cask Release of 292 Bottles]

Nose:

There is a thrilling dose of burnt rubber tires alongside seaweed and coal smoke.  Rustic and dirty but is nicely complimented by a syrupy sweetness.

Palate & Finish:

Uncompromising and voluminous texture with its oiliness, the palate is chewy with the peat particles generously revealing themselves, good syrupy nature as the smoke and pepper latch on.

The delivery transitions well into the finish, hints of citrus now becoming more noticeable.

Thoughts:

A young, but proper Port Charlotte, straight to the point and nicely executed..
