All the better for Bruichladdich's progressive approach to whisky
I'll always have a soft spot for la frog but by and large the peaty Islays are as predictable as they are excellent. Bruichladdich have some interesting and challenging bottles and this is a wonderful dram that is now top of my list for peat and islay. Brutal taken neat with a pungent hot peat that slaps you into submission. Take with ice or water and it opens up into something altogether different and wonderfully composed. Genius in a bottle

In the U.S. now, but won't last....
The most useful packaging of any whisky. You can use the stylish metal tube for storing spaghetti, nuts, biscuits, keys, etc. Much more useful than a cardboard box, even one with magnets.

Its hard to get Bruichladdich whiskies in the U.S. there's some but not many...& this one is a definite must have for U.S. Bruichladdich fans. Big bang for the buck, won't last on shelves too long..

Wow. Very sweet, very round and long. Think orange infused honey. Let it roll to the back of your tongue and you will get a treat. Incredibly good and less than $60 US. Possibly my new favorite.

The Port Charlotte Peated came along to me like a somewhat tamed Octomore. It’s quite intense and interesting – and a dash of water might be good with it. It does get your attention focused, and quickly. I should say that I'd started with 15 mL of Caol Ila 12yo, which I liked as an alternative to Lagavulin, Ardbeg and Laphroaig. And I also preceded the Port Charlotte with 15 mL Kilchoman Machir Bay 2013, with an interesting nose and more subdued sherried taste along with its Islay smoke and phenolic comfort. Then, following those two, I had the Bruichladdich Port Charlotte - it quickly had a very focused and intense set of smoke, peat and barley. If I'd had it first, it would have overwhelmed the tasting of the others. By far, the most intense of the three to me. If you try a sample, you might love it. I preferred the more subtle (and somewhat less expensive) Caol Ila and Kilchoman Machir Bay.
