Port Charlotte 10 Year Old "Second Limited Edition" Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

SKU #1122789

The 10-year-old benchmark for Bruichladdich's peated whisky project, named for the famous distillery in the town of the same name, is back! Here we have the massive intensity of Port Charlotte framed in a very natural context. Tarry and phenolic, turning toward citrus and salt on the palate. The oily texture is lifted by a tartness that offsets the smoke nicely. A very exciting whisky for any malt lover. To be perfectly clear--I have never tasted such focus or purity in a single malt whisky. I can safely say that no whisky has ever tasted as much to me like the source from whence it came. The 10-year-old Port Charlotte literally tastes like a piece of malted barley that has just come out of the kiln. This whisky tastes like distilleries smell. It's so bracingly clear that it's almost like getting new glasses or contact lenses--every flavor just comes into an insane level of focus right from the first sip. Whether or not you like that flavor is up to you, but I got chills. A huge accomplishment. The Second Limited Edition was aged full-term in first fill bourbon, sherry, tempranillo and French wine cask and peated to 40ppm.

This Port Charlotte 10 year old is a delicious single malt for those who love a little smoke with their drink. In the mouth there is a nice almost creamy roundness with subtle hints of brine. It is one of the most elegant smokey single malts from Islay that I have had.
