Scotch Whisky | 50% ABV

Commercial Description:

This Port Charlotte 10 year old has been conceived, distilled, matured and bottled on Islay alone. We are a young team with deep-rooted values, and an ambition to make the ultimate “Islay” Islay whisky. A whisky made by people not software; a whisky watched over every day of its maturing life by those who made it; a whisky born of a community with a vision and a mission to kick start a single malt whisky revolution, this Port Charlotte 10 year old is who we are. This is where we’re from.

Nose – The smoke is calmed by the marine, ozone character,
time has brought a balance, a harmony in the combination of oak, smoke and spirit. While the smoke is always discernible on the nose it is dry, earthy, peatash in its style and so allows the oak to come forward with waves of golden caramel, fudge, vanilla custard, hints of ginger, nutmeg and clove. There is citrus fruit, coaxed from the glass with a drop of water, gentle lemon meringue and clementine. Breathe deeply and the floral aromas of wild thyme, heather and sea pink bring you to this Atlantic coast.

Palate – On the palate there is a noticeable delicacy and softness in texture and style. Again, the balance of flavour is superb as the smoke wraps loosely around the sweetness drawn from deep within the oak. Coconut, vanilla custard, lemon honey combines with smoked oysters and sun baked salty sand.

Finish – The finish is sublime, smoky sure, but also the soft sweetness of fudge and malted barley, orange, mango and Banoffee pie hinting of the depth and quality of the oak. The many layers interchange on each sip. As the smoke comes and goes so too the notes of the spirit, ripe apple and apricot, beautifully intertwined with malt and oak sweetness and that typical Port Charlotte style dry smoke.

Character – Ageing for 10 years on the shores of Loch Indaal has had a profound effect on this spirit. Like sunshine on a winters day, this Port Charlotte 10 brings clarity and lightens the mood, welcoming and brightening the future.

A home run for the lover of Islay Whiskey

Bruichladdich Port Charlotte 10 Year Single Malt Scotch Whisky is an offering of which I'd not heard before finding it here at Craftshack. The description was intriguing and I decided to give it a try. Good decision! I do enjoy a stand up peat loaded Islay and Port Charlotte is that in spades. in truth, the description on Craftshack makes this offering sound tamer than it really is. Upon pouring a glass, the peat is evident but not overpowering and the color is a straw but slightly darker than most of this sort. The 50% ABV is definitely there but not overpowering. The taste is oak, peat, vanilla and smoke all at once and it grows in intensity as you hold it in your mouth. This is definitely a whiskey for slowly sipping and savoring. if you think of Port Charlotte as an Ardbeg on steroids you won't be far off. I am definitely a fan and will be purchasing this again (once it becomes available again. As of this writing it is sold out at Craftshack). Again, if you enjoy an unapologetic, well peated, and complex Islay then you will definitely enjoy this whiskey.
