Islay single malt scotch whisky
Distilled in 2009, this batch is a vatting of a refill hogshead and a first-fill barrel. It is classic Port Charlotte, with dense smoke and sweet peat – like walking past a farmyard bonfire. Only 582 bottles were produced.
Core FlavourVanilla and dirty smoke.
Cask detailsDistilled in 2009 and aged in a refill hogshead and a first fill barrel.
NoseSweet tobacco and the farmyard character that’s typical of the best Port Charlottes. Pine wood and smoky oak chips follow, accompanied by sea spray and tarred rope.
PalateRefined and austere to start with. Lemon oil and woody spice develop in the glass, becoming richer. Dense and aromatic smoke billows around charred pak choi in hoisin sauce. Vanilla sweetness and dirty smoke play against each other, creating deeper and darker complexity.
FinishDry and subtle with hints of bottle-aged Italian vermouth, wormwood, cloves and cassia bark.
