    It isn't a Port Charlotte. Not enough peat. It isn't a true Bruichladdich either. Too much peat. So, maybe a Port Laddich, or a Bruichcharlotte?

    What it is is a great whisky. At first there is the sherry and afther a while some smoke comes through, Almost shy.

    It lingers quite a while.

    I love it!

    Info from https://www.whiskyvanzuylen.nl

    A heavily peated Bruichladdich who sang on a sherry barrel for sixteen years for an excellent price. The barrel dates from the time after the reopening in 2001. Private individuals then had plenty of opportunity to buy barrels and this bottling is the result. The spirit was distilled in November 2001. Bottling followed after more than sixteen years in March 2018. A total of 389 bottles were bottled at a high strength of 50%. Of these, only 168 are available for sale.

    Sorry Vanzuylen, but this is absolutely unpeated whisky. It IS Bruichladdich, not Port Charlotte, as I expected when ordering....
    Lovely whisky though.
    Edit: there might be some peat in it but not on a PC level.

    The numerous 90+ reviews had made me curious. I can not really follow them like that. With Port Charlotte that has - for my taste - (unfortunately) nothing to do, this is a Laddie. The very fine impression of smoke is more likely to stem from the sherry cask than from the distillate. Unexpectedly strong, despite the reduction in alcohol content to 50%. Strong, quite dry sherry and oak influences, which, however, does not slide into the really bitter. However, lacking sweetness and above all sweet fruit, for a really great experience.
    Overall, no evil malt, but there are more exciting in Sherry Single Casks. I forgot about him with Dramfool and Whiskybroker bottlings, which I found to be both more convincing, simply delicious.
