Information about Port Charlotte PAC: 01 2011
The latest Islay Single Malt Whisky release from Bruichladdich, a Port Charlotte PAC, two parcels of Heavily Peated Port Charlotte spirit distilled in November 2011, have been combined to create Port Charlotte PAC: 01. Parcel 1 - 6 years in 1st Fill ex-American Whiskey Casks, then 2 years in 1st Fill Casks which previously held red wine from the Pauillac region of France. Parcel 2 - 7 years maturation in 1st fill ex-American Whiskey Casks, then the remainder of its life in 2nd fill casks which previously held red wine from the Pauillac region of France. Colour - Ruby Barley provenance - 100% Scottish Concerto Barley. Nose - Lots of fresh, fruit aromas mingle with the dry peat smoke to entice you into the dram, from the oak comes spices - cloves, ginger and cassia, along with chocolate, toasted malt with toffee, brown sugar and delicate coconut and vanilla notes. Palate - As the first drop touches your tongue a wave of flavours sweep across the palate, the sweetness from the oak and malt lead, followed by smoke, citrus and dried fruit notes. Finish - The peat smoke comes through on the finish with a more medicinal phenol style. Coconut and floral notes waver and a saline marine element combine with the earthy smoke in the classic Port Charlotte style. The softness of the oak and the minerality of the spirit become wrapped in smoke, a familiar signature to this dram. From Bruichladdich Distillery, Islay
