Port Charlotte 10 Year Old Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

SKU #1375506 91 points Whisky Advocate

Outer quote mark Distilled from Scottish barley, this is the first permanent age-statement Port Charlotte bottling. First and second-fill American oak and French wine casks were used for aging. Rock pools, lemon juice, caramel, but little overt peat on the nose. The palate boasts big orchard fruit notes, smoky coconut, and brine. Again, the peat is quite muted. Long and spicy in the drying, peaty finish. (GS, Fall 2018) Inner quote mark

K&L Notes

The first permanent release of Port Charlotte 10 Year. Apparently, they've got enough whisky to keep this going awhile. We certainly hope so 'cause it's just fabulous. It replaces the multi-vintage Scottish Barley they've sold for years. The new, distinctive green glass bottle distinguishes the Port Charlotte label from the unpeated Bruichladdich line and wonderfully captures the raw power and awesome complexity of the special smoky whisky from west bank of Loch Indaal. As with the previous offerings, the 10 year is 100% Scottish barley grown in the Invernesshire region. Peated to 40 ppm and aged in 65% first-fill American whiskey barrels, 25% second-fill French wine casks and the difference in second-fill American whiskey barrels. As with all Bruichladdich products, it's bottled on-site without coloring or chill-filtration of any kind. Cut with Islay spring water to a gorgeous 100 proof, this permanent addition to Bruichladdich's portfolio also represents a new edition to the pantheon of spectacular, affordable, and available peated Islay malt whiskies. It stands shoulder to shoulder with its peaty cousins to the south and east. Expect big, dry, ashy peat balanced with sweet fudge and melting brown sugar. On the palate, tangy BBQ smoke, zippy smoked lemon peel dusted with a hefty layer of baking spice. The powerful smoke is tamed by a vibrant wild honey and lifted, salty oyster shell. It moves toward ripe baked tropical and orchard fruits on the end. Perfectly seamless.
