This has to be amongst the very few fascinating Bruichladdich Port Charlotte's Cask Exploration Series Whiskies. The other was PAC 01 2011, which I personally think was a notch better, but not by much. It's possibly a 0.2 % variation. I know it's nitpicking, but somebody has to win, isn't it?
One thing to note here is don't just get this to your lips soon after you pour. After you pour into your Glencairn let it sit while you go about your chores. Revisit ever so often and nose it; don't just sip yet. After about 20 minutes or so, put it to your lips, and you'll be handsomely rewarded. Do it any sooner, and you'll wish you'd never picked this bottle.
