Trade war with who, surely you guys don't buy food and beverages from the Middle Kingdom. Even its inhabitants try to avoid consuming it.

More likely the manufacturers and supermarkets are using the 'trade wars' to camouflage their price gouging practices.

Valdemort has been orchestrating a trade war with Canada for the last year, resulting in retaliatory tariffs from Canada on all sorts of things, including US coffee. Now Peet's or even Starbucks would have been the last choice for Canada to throw tariffs on, given that both have headquarters in Democratic states, but apparently some major coffee exporters from the US are in red states. Thus, huge tariffs on US coffee.

WOOT!

Obviously, you've either left North Carolina, found a new liquor store with a better selection, or this liquid gold has finally made it's way to the south.

So, compared to regular PC/Islay, what's your impression?
It showed up without warning at the smallest of liquor stores -- which I usually avoid b/c they manage to run out of everything I like before the weekend -- but I dashed in to to pick up a Talisker Storm ... and found the 10 year Port Charlotte on the shelf.

I find it a 'heavier' version of the regular PC/Islay -- much peatier, with broad hints of salt alongside heather/fruit notes -- a very complex palate
The finish is peat, with perhaps some chocolate hints ...
Still tasting ...

Hmmm. I didn't pick up on peatier, but definitely smoother. And I thought a bit less nose, surprisingly. The saltier, and the complexity, definitely.
