Port Charlotte 10 Year is a permanent addition to Bruichladdich's portfolio and replaces the multi-vintage Scottish Barley bottling. Made using 100% Scottish barley from the Inverness Shire region. This 10 year old bottling matures in a variety of casks: 65% in 1st fill American whiskey, 10% in 2nd fill American whiskey, and 25% in 2nd fill French wine casks. Port Charlotte bottlings are the heavily peated single malt line distilled at Bruichladdich with the barley peated to 40ppm. Bottled at 50% ABV, it is non-chillfiltered and has no color added. Available beginning May 2018.

Tasting Notes

"Bruichladdich's Port Charlotte 10 Year falls on the peatier side of the Islay spectrum, but that's not to say it lacks complexity. Its assertive phenols are balanced by a gentle sweetness and notes of vanilla, hay, and orange peel. This very welcome addition to the regular Bruichladdich line-up earns a spot alongside more familiar Islay whiskies."
