Product details

While the Bruichladdich distillery is known as one of Islay’s rare unpeated whiskies, it does dabble in the smokier side of things with its Port Charlotte range. This release celebrates local Islay barley and is made from barley sourced from seven different farms on the island, so it has a real sense of place.

Distilled in 2013 with barley peated to 40PPM (parts per million), it was then initially aged in ex-American whiskey casks, before 25% of the whisky was finished in Pessac-Léognan wine casks from Bordeaux. Once it reached eight years of age, it was bottled at a hearty 50% ABV, with the bright fruitiness contrasting beautifully with the rich, savoury Islay smoke that the island is so famous for.
