- Bruichladdich Port Charlotte 10yo Heavily Peated. Had this a couple of times previously, but rating is from a bottle at Drygate, Glasgow in March 2019. Aroma is spiritous and oaky, bizarrely there's some smoke evident from a distance when it's poured but it doesn't come through much when nosing closely, quite sawdusty and plasticky. Taste is very salty and waxy, there's almost a souring or cheesy note, a little paraffin oily waxy - Octomore-like with the peat which takes on on a burnt wax depth bordering oiliness. Quite fun but lacks complexity for me. Drinks below 50% though. (3.3/79)
- A very god 10 years old Islay!
- Starts earthly and has a salty ending
Bacon, cured pork, barnyard notes, vanilla, sweet yellow fruit, fresh notes.
Sweet and barnyardy arrival. Rich sweet peat, spice, oak, yellow fruit, mild honey, bitter notes.
Long and billowing ash, peat, honey, and bitter notes. Warming spice.
Smoked meat, red wine, sea salt, malt sourness
Different shades of smoking, sea salt, mineral oil
Middle. Ashes, oak barrel, a pinch of spices
- One of the favorite 10YO scotches!
- Port Charlotte 10 year old is unusual for a standard bottling due to its inclusion of wine casks. However the result is quite pleasant indeed. On the nose are smoke, tangy fruit notes - a mix of lemon and pink guava juice - sea air and a hint of minerality. The farminess from the peat is more pronounced on the palate, which is followed by tangy lemon juice, some light minerality and very gentle herbs. There is both a pleasant sweetness and a nice, oily quality. For a 50% whisky it is surprisingly easy to drink. The finish continues with more smoke, lemon and minerality. It might be more expensive than other 10yo whiskies, but it is worth it.
