The Port Charlotte distillery was located on the island of Islay from 1829 to 1929. The Port Charlotte whisky is the epitome of Islay peat. Born on the island, carried on by Bruichladdich with it being in its “Heavily Peated” category. Distilled in 2010, and then aged in a combination of ex-bourbon, Syrah, and vin doux Naturel casks. For the last 18 months, it was transferred to Oloroso hogshead casks. This multi-cask maturation brings out a complex balance of sweet dried fruits, oily nuts while adding a fragrant smoky smell to it. I could nose this all day long.
