This is a very good whisky in craft presentation. There is the idea that scotch whisky will move away from age statements, if they do i hope this whisky doesnt change, its dam good as it is.

  • Nose: light smoke with salted toffee, candlewax, fruit notes, marzipan, saltanas, honeyed ham, some rubberyness, as well as hazel and walnuts. With water more contrast between sweet as savoury.

  • Pallet: waxy feel, salty bacon, pepper, butterscotch with some mint and rosemary. With water some cheddar notes emerge.

  • Finish: salty, sugared almonds, smoked fish and dry earth. With water again the cheddar notes last further and a little more sweetness.

  • Mark neat – 8.6, with water 8.8.

Bruichladdich has a wonderful natural complexity to the nature of its spirit, i think the Port Charlotte derivation is a really good balance between the meaty, salty peat flavours and the sweeter elements.
