This Port Charlotte is a heavily peated (44ppm) single malt whisky from the progressive Islay distillers at Bruichladdich. This bottling is a blend of multiple vintages of this smoky whisky and offers an insight into how Bruichladdich may have tasted in years gone by.
Nose: This is a battle between peat and spice. The smoke swirls around a battalion of pepper and cinnamon.
Palate: The smoke arrives first followed by an immense creaminess on the palate, then notes of sherbet lemon emerge.
Finish: The finish is fruity with just a hint of soot and nutmeg.
Overall: This is a whisky for the peat-heads and is a great example of what's coming out of Bruichladdich's peat project.

Surprise! For a "heavily peated" scotch this is mild compared to typical Islays. I was expecting a peat bomb at 40 ppm phenol, but instead discovered a complex, sweet, spicy dram with just enough peat to satisfy but just enough clarity to allow the many flavors to compete. Light, sweet, smoky, this one stands next to my Laphroaig cask strength as latest favorite.

What a great whisky. A real shame it's all gone !!!

The best whisky I tasted in 2014, beautiful balance between smokiness and sweetness, even better than recent bottlings of Ardbeg Uigeadail. Would happily pay double the price if I could source another bottle.

This is a very robust Scotch. It has become one of my favorite scotchs because of the great flavor and long finish. I love flavor and this definitely satisfies that craving. A splash of water really opens this Scotch up. Also, try the PC Barley if you like this one.
I really don't like it

Definitely recommend this bottle. It has become my new go to scotch. Smooth, very nice taste, great finish.

Bought this after trying the laddie ten which I enjoyed. Having tried most of the big named peated scotch. I was amazed by the robust taste of this scotch from The first sip it had me wanting more and for fifty dollars in my area it has just moved to the front of the line up in my scotch drinking endeavors.

Balanced smoke hit, vanilla cream, then a peppery ethanol finish. A very refreshing whisky which also does well as an introduction to peaty single malts. Also great bottle design compared to the stereotypical whisky bottles with labels using out of date fonts

Bought a half bottle while on holiday. Shame, I could have drammed a cask away. This would be a great intro into peat whiskey as its not a shock to the palate as some are, more a kiss and a cuddle.

Very nice indeed, well balanced with both peat and smoke.

Every peat lover will like this spirit. However, do not expect a big peat hit. This is a fragrant, ethereal, spring/early summer peat, washed with mellow ocean breeze, zesty, flowery, multi-layered, sweet and tame, yet mischievous. Lovely, indeed!

This bottling is i many ways a successor to the Anturas Mor, however this one goes back to the Laddie roots, with lots of zesty, dense and creamy citrus notes that is almost "tequila-esque", how very bruichladdich. The Anturas bottling was closer, if anything to a good mellow young laphroaig minus the peppers. A very nice bottling of a series coming of age, lovely i say...

Yes, I'm a peat-head and a Laddie fan. So I couldn't wait until I got my hands on this one. I was not disappointed. I love peat, but I also like balance and complexity. I would not consider this a one-note peat bomb at all. Yes, it is smokey and intense, but there is also some citrus flavors with spice, and a nice gentle sweetness at the end. Really well done.

A lovely Whisky, a definite for peat lovers.
