Port Charlotte Scottish Barley Review

Hi guys,

Just a quick one for a community review on r/Scotch.
Every month people post up their reviews about one voted whisky and notes/scores are compared. A really worthwhile and useful exercise actually.
I tasted this at a Bruichladdich tasting in Cardiff for South Wales Whisky Interest group (SWWIG).

Port Charlotte Scottish Barley 50%
Colour: Light Gold
Body: Light/Medium
Nose: Light and peaty. Vanilla fudge, sweet honey, fruity oak, some sea salt, fruity oaky smoke, some mint and moss coming through.
Water: More iodine.
Taste: Vanilla fudge, creamy and light, peat building with fruity sweetness, raisin and cream, sherry and iodine.
Water: Even more creamy and light.
Finish: Medium length. Creamy peat and dry oak, some toffee.
