  • Excerpt: It might not work on its own, but it’s easy to imagine if you blended some of this earthy Scottish barley with the fruitier barley they use in the regular releases you could end up with a complex and multi-faceted whisky; Port Charlotte Blended Barley.

  • Intro:

    This is the NAS version of Bruichladdichs Port Charlotte line distilled from Scottish barley maltings.

  • Nose:

    Peat coupled with gentle honey and a minute amount of char. BBQ ribs, meaty funk, lemon zest.

  • Taste:

    Theres smoke and grain sweetness offset by citrus and honey with a whallop of char and rubber at the end. Theres salted caramel, funky smoked meats, bring and lemon zest with sweet butter cream.

  • Finish:

    Medium to long with more citrus and char. Less sweetness but it doesnt taste like I just licked a peat bog and it doesnt taste like a candy store, so Im a fan.

  • Overall:

    This is an enjoyable dram that exhibits a very distinct take on peat that Bruichladdich is able to consistently produce. Often leaning towars the more "meaty" notes rather than bandages, it is enjoyable without being overbearing.
