Port Charlotte 18 Year Old 54.3%

The oldest ever expression of Port Charlotte Islay Single Malt to be released to date. Limited to 6,000 bottles, its rich peaty profile celebrates authenticity, provenance, and community.

Staying true to the classic vibrancy of the heavily-peated (40PPM) Port Charlotte spirit, this 18 Year Old expression has been profoundly influenced by its cask maturation profile and the passing of time, resulting in a complex and unforgettable single malt.

The Bruichladdich distillery was constructed on the isle of Islay off the west coast of Scotland in 1881 by Barnett Harvey. Then in 1886 Bruichladdich Distillery Company Ltd was founded. The site lies to the south west of the island and is one of nine working distilleries there. There have been numerous owners over the years and a time of  consistency when Invergordon Distillers took over in 1968. In 1993 Whyte & Mackay bought Invergordon Distillers and the distillery was mothballed in 1995. Bruichladdich was then sold to Murray McDavid in 2000. Since 2001 when production started again the philosophy was to push the boundaries of the norm for whisky making. The distillery has become renowned for its innovation and willingness to experiment. There are three main lines produced, unpeated Bruichladdich, heavily peated Port Charlotte and ultra heavily peated Octomore. Not forgetting the botanist gin also distilled on site. The distillery has been very busy over the past twenty years producing new releases, batches and vintages of these great diverse whiskies.

Official Tasting Notes

Colour- Hazel

Nose - Notes of dried fruit, figs, sweet sultanas and raisins immediately open on the nose, followed by soft smoke and mellow oak. As the whisky opens further it reveals leathery notes of tobacco and burnt heather, with marine-tinged smoke balanced with cinder toffee and date syrup.

Palate - Gentle and beautifully balanced, the whisky is predominantly sweet and fruity on the palate with dried dark fruits and chocolate. The influence of the oak is mellow with warm toasted spices, cinnamon, gingerbread and nutmeg coming to the fore. Orange citrus, cinder toffee and honey complement the soft, smoked grain, with notes of peat-infused scones, smoked popcorn and salted caramel.

Finish - Wood spices, smoked leather and a subtle nutty salinity round off the complex dram, while soft peat smoke lingers.
