Port Charlotte PC8 Bottling Note
This is the last of the 2001 vintage of ‘age-numbered’ Port Charlotte expressions. This comes with the nickname “Ar duthcas”- Gaelic for “Land of our heritage”. This is very well-peated to 40ppm. Matured in American Oak and bottled at cask strength. There are six different tin designs and the release is limited to 30,000 numbered bottles.
another amazing 'laddie
Very very very nice dram. Peat smoke heavy on entry, mid-palate and swallow but it is the other subtitles that make this what it is - one of Isaly's finest.
Hints of citrus, and coffee-buttery thickness and a pronounced sweetness make you want more and the high abv makes your whole mouth tingle after drinking. Following the swallow your mouth starts watering and it's almost impossible to resist pouring another nip. This bottle wont last long.
