  • Excerpt: Peaches and pineapple wrapped in peat, with marshmallows and rock salt on the supple palate. A whiff of iodine in the finish, with berries, cloves, licorice, and spicy oak.

  • Intro:

    On pain of legal purgatory - Bruichladdich's Port Charlotte MRC:01 bears only the initials of the vineyard whom their spirit has spent time finishing. Port Charlotte is the heavily peated entries in Laddie's portfolio, and this series of wild wine finishes is bottled at cask strength without coloring or filtering.

  • Nose:

    Pungent barbecue, meaty ribs, musty tobacco and bright fruits. Syrupy, stewed fruits. Currant, blackberry, plum.

  • Taste:

    Sweet on the palate. Tons of toffee, ash, charcoal smoke, blackberry and cherry. Medium mouthfeel, a bit of heat.

  • Finish:

    Long finish. A bit of heat, though it’s powerfully jammy and savory.

  • Overall:

    What a rockstar of a bottle. Great synthesis between meaty peat and pungent, rich stewed fruit and wine character

  • Score:
