Bruichladdich Port Charlotte Islay Barley Single Malt Scotch Whisky


Port Charlotte Islay Barley is a unique peated single malt, with all the barley used for distillation coming from six farms located on the island of Islay


Bruichladdich is one of the eight operational distilleries on the Scottish island of Islay, built in 1881. Today, Bruichladdich uses all original equipment and traditional methods, utilizing barley only from the local farmers on the island to produce exceptionally high-quality scotch whisky, which is always non-chill-filtered, coloring-free, and bottled at 46% alc/vol or higher. Bruichladdich produces unpeated whisky, such as their Laddie lineup, and heavily peated malts under the Port Charlotte sub-label, as well as the Octomore single malt, marketed as the peatiest single malt on the planet. Bruichladdich distillery has the tallest stills on Isla; therefore, their malts are known for their elegant and refined, floral taste profile.

Port Charlotte Islay Barley was distilled in 2008 exclusively from barley grown on six farms on Islay, peated to 40ppm, and bottled in 2014 at 50% alc/vol. Its nose is rounded, with a barley sweetness, maltiness, plenty of smoke, and a hint of salt. The palate is chewy and herbal, with leather, maltiness, toasted bread, smoke, mossy, a hint of brine, and pepper. It has a medium to long finish of ash and campfire, with the barley sweetness lingering.
