User Reviews of the Port Charlotte Scottish Barley - Heavily Peated

NAM - Excellent peaty scotch for the price!!!

I was visiting my local shop and was having a hard decision between Lagavulin and the Port Charlotte. The scotch expert stated Port Charlotte is so full of peat smoke no cigars are needed. I took a chance, bought it and love it! If you do not like peaty scotch stay away, you will be disappointed in the aroma and flavor. If you do like peat, place this one on your shelf!

Among Laphroaig, Ardbeg, and most other Islays I've tried thus far (not a huge ton, mostly entry-level bottlings) this is one of my favorites. The only other I have a close fondness for as close as this might be Lagavulin, though it is quite different. This PC is complex, the nose is of youths fighting on a snowy day outside the pub - differing scents vying for attention creating a somewhat turbulent complexity. Takes 5-10 minutes or so to open up - the first sip after pouring does indeed taste a little dull and alcoholic-y (in my opinion, at least), but give it a little time and the nose and taste really start to come out.

Requested this as a Christmas present hoping it would be like Port Charlotte Peat Project. It is not, very disappointing, little taste, nose and body, the worst expression of Port Charlotte I have come across. Will have to return to Octomore and Smokehead for my peat fix.

Islay Single malt

Cannot get past the very strong smell of antiseptic drain cleaner, sorry!

I was pleseantly surprised by this Scotch. It is one of my favorites now. It has a very complex taste with a long finish. I prefer this over Highland Park 12 and Bowmore.

Where to buy in U.S.

Ontario needs funds to pay it's large debt, so buying any new single malt release will be very expensive. If this is offered in the U.S. for a good price, please post it.

I would love to but....

I would love to try this but in Ontario, Canada, where I live, this is priced at $109! Think about that. A NAS whisky priced just 8 dollars less the Lagavulin 16 (priced at $117 here)

Someone tell me how it tastes.

I was expecting more of this. Not complex at all. Yes its very peaty and phenolic but also I found a metallic youth and bitter finish to this. Very alcoholic and sour on the nose. Not for me.

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

Great Tube

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.

In the U.S. now, but won't last....

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.
