A new look for Bruichladdich’s Port Charlotte for this 2011 vintage.
Made entirely with barley grown on the isle of Islay. Indeed, the grain used has been grown at just three Islay farms, demonstrating Bruichladdich’s commitment to creating products that reflect the island’s unique qualities.
Port Charlotte 2011 has been aged in a mixture of 75% first fill former Bourbon casks, and 25% second fill former Syrah and Figero wine casks.
Port Charlotte is of course Bruichladdich’s peated offering, sitting at 40ppm. This dram serves up notes of floral, thick peat, with a strong sweet citrus core (think lemon drizzle cake), a little dried fruit and oak, wine sweetness, malted milk, vanilla, apples, sea spray and toasted almonds.
Bottled at 50% ABV, this is a toasty and warming Port Charlotte that maintains all of the delicate floral and creamy notes that Bruichladdich is known for.
Simply another great Bruichladdich whisky.
