  • Intro:

    "The floral elegance of Bruichladdich, but with heavy peat? Could it work? Welcome to The Peat Project. Designed to compliment our limited edition, single vintage PC series, this bottling represents Jims classic Port Charlotte dram. Peated to 44 ppm, and bottled using Islay spring water from the Octomore field of farmer James Brown." - Bruichladdich

  • Nose:

    Sweet cream, lemon lime and seaweed. Big peat here, briney and loaded with earthiness and charcoal. The peat is more meaty - bbq focused with some lemon cream and ashy notes. A bit different from the Octomores which are so meaty and heavy - this shows a bit more balance between fruit, ash, meat and seaweed.

  • Taste:

    Medium mouth feel, no real heat. Sweet caramel and vanilla cream, light honey and toffee. Ashy peat, light iodine, crushed stone, apples and some bbq meats (think bbq ribs)

  • Finish:

    Long, rich and shockingly powerful despite the proof. Ashy, loaded with toffee to pair with briny minerality.

  • Overall:

    Really enjoyed this too. I'm sad I found it well after its discontinuing, because Id buy a whole bunch of these. Its really impressive how much presence this dram has at 46% ABV.

  • Score:

    7
