Port Charlotte ‘Islay Barley Heavily Peated’ Single Malt Whisky 2012

RM498.00

SKU:
WHM087102
This high provenance, heavily-peated single malt was distilled from Islay-grown barley in 2012. A total of eight Islay farms came together to harvest the 2011 crop for Port Charlotte over a tempestuous summer. Each farmer had worked with us before, in Hunter Jackson, Ian Torrance, Ian MacKerrel, Raymond Fletcher, Mark French, Alistair Torrance, Raymond Stewart with father and son team Donald and Andrew Jones. Our community’s commitment to Islay is embodied here, where local barley is raised, distilled, matured and bottled only on Islay.

Nose – Initially a fresh linen and sandy sea breeze note stands out. Zesty lemon, a green fruit signature, apple sauce and crunchy pears follow. Floral geranium notes come through with sea pinks and gooseberry. then creamy coconut dipped
in chocolate opens up quickly with muddy peat smoke, burnt heather and peach skin. hints of vanilla and toasted malt. The aromas speak of the spirit, the distillation and the barley.

Palate – On the lips it’s soft and sweet, texturally there is a thin honey style that slips across the palate. Immediately there is more from the cask here, vanilla, milk chocolate and light cedar and black pepper. Warmed scones and honey from the malt wrapped in earthy smoke and soft apricot. creamy, minty, tablet brings a sweetness and a warm salty sand hint of Islay.

Finish – The finish is coconut and peat smoke, mildly iodine-y and hints of almond and geranium. The peat smoke gently fades away.

 

Character – Wonderfully balanced to show the fruity style of the spirit on the nose and the delicate influence of the cask on the palate. The peat smoke weaves its way gently through the whisky highlighting the softer sweeter notes. This 2012 vintage has a freshness and balance that tells the story of the place to which it belongs.

About The Brand

Bruichladdich distillery is located on the southwestern tip of the remote hebridean island of islay where we distil four unique spirits. home to Bruichladdich, Port Charlotte and Octomore single malt whiskies and the Botanist islay dry gin. We label and trace, parcel by parcel, many different barley varieties, different farms, even different fields, or terroirs, many of whose characteristics are retained directly in our maturing whisky stocks, depending on harvest, yield, weather and crop rotation.

For us barley is a living, organic expression of the land, of the terroir in which it is grown. Our farmers are known to us by first name. They tell us about the soil, the wind, the drainage, the aspect, the micro-climate of every field. The Bruichladdich whisky range is unpeated, floral and complex. Triple distilled from 100% Scottish barley using much of the original Victorian machinery, the methods employed by their craftsmen have continued unchanged. This is natural whisky, non-chill filtered and colouring free.

Port Charlotte single malts are peated to a heavyweight 40PPM. Trickle distilled through our tall, narrow necked still, the resulting rich and aromatic spirit has all the power of peat with the elegance and finesse for which our stills famous.
