Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling 70cl / 61%

Port Charlotte PC7 was the third in Bruichladdich's PC series of Port Charlotte, the distillery's heavily-peated (40ppm) spirit.

With the original 2001 Port Charlotte spirit now a 7-year-old Islay whisky, Port Charlotte PC7 was subtitled Sin An Doigh Ileach: 'It's the Islay way', as a tribute to the local community who helped Jim McEwan, Mark Reynier and their team get the distillery back on its feet in 2001.

Matured exclusively in American oak casks, and bottled at a mighty 61% without colouring or chill filtration, this earthy, smoky 7-year-old Port Charlotte is perfect after a long walk on a cold day, although it needs a drop of water to release all its flavours.

Tasting Notes

Official Tasting Notes:

Colour: Saffron/ Straw Gold/Set Honey

Nose: The texture of the spirit has been enriched by another year’s maturation thus becoming less aggressive by taking the strength of ancient oak which in turn gives more character and personality.

Palate: The peaty flavour is rich and vibrant reaching deep onto the palate accompanied by dark warm molasses with hints of dates and bitter chocolate. The second layer brings the moorland mossy flavours bringing complexity and contrast weaving beautifully with the smoke, and then the marine breezes add their unique freshness, lifting the senses on an updraft of the Queen of the Hebrides. The history and culture of Islay in the palm of your hand. It arouses feelings of family and friends who, like the distillery, have shown a life force that can overcome many hurdles and remain untouched by the ever-changing seasons of life.

Character: Young and virile and full of pride and passion. The Ileach is showing more maturity and early signs of becoming a warrior on this Island of peat giants and Celtic crosses.
