Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling 70cl / 60.5%
The fourth general release of Bruichladdich's heavily-peated Port Charlotte, PC8 was bottled as an 8-year-old in 2009 from a batch of the 2001 spirit matured in American oak casks.
As with its predecessors, Port Charlotte PC8 was bottled at its full cask strength of 60.5% without colouring or chill filtration, and is a mighty 8-year-old Islay whisky bursting with elemental peatiness. Ar Duthchas is a Gaelic expression meaning both Our Land and Our Heritage, and is an ancient term used to express the deep relationship of a tribe, clan or community with the land that they and their forefathers have inhabited.

Official Tasting Notes:
Colour: Chartreuse sunshine.
Nose: An updraft of sea spray and peat smoke greets you with spicy pepper and lemon aromas all exploding simultaneously. Spindrift on canvas sails with a tailwind of heather and myrtle. Then the sweetness of oak and malted barley burst through bringing calm for a while before you are swept onto the next wave. Palate – Viscous, rich and oily. Peat fire flavours and the mellow rich taste of sweet, oaky Demerara sugar toddy. Waves of Islay wash over the
Palate: An original Islay dram, unlike any other.
Finish: Dreams come true and desires fulfilled! This prodigy of Islay’s west coast clearly shows that coastal maturation is THE key element as waves of marine notes add the vital spark to the oak sweetness of the spirit.
