A peaty whisky from Islay’s Bruichladdich distillery, this 2011-vintage Port Charlotte was distilled entirely from grain grown on the island. The barley was harvested from three farms in 2010 and sent for malting on the mainland. When it returned, it was milled, mashed, fermented, distilled, matured and bottled all that distillery. The whisky combines the classic Port Charlotte peat smoke and citrus notes with creamy vanilla and coconut from the cask. An excellent look at the distillery’s character and their dedication to the examination of terroir.
