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.

Tasting notes

  • Nose

    Sweet 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.
  • Palate

    Refined 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.
  • Finish

    Dry and subtle with hints of bottle-aged Italian vermouth, wormwood, cloves and cassia bark.
