PORT CHARLOTTE PC6 Aged 6 years 61,6%

A nose you could rob a bank just to get a sniff at. Aggressive yet sweet peat mingles with fresh oranges. After a couple of minutes, the oranges disappear, leaving the marvellous peat in full control.

Smooth and silky orange toffee merges comfortlessly with elegant smoke and uncompromising peat.

More of that elegant smoke filling every single crevice at the back of the mouth. Peat so thick you could cut it with a knife.

A highly peated whisky from the Bruichladdich distillery. Distilled in 2001. 18 000 bottles made. Not only a sign of the goodies we can expect in the future but also a testimony to the greatness of young-ish Islays. Easily among the top ten whiskies that I´ve tried. Get it before you have to cough up a fortune for it. Love the box!

Rating: 9,5/10
