PC5 was the first bottling in the "PC" collection; it is a 5-year old heavily-peated (40 ppm) single malt distilled at Bruichladdich. It is bottled at cask-strength of 63.5% ABV. Only 6,000 bottles were produced; this is now a highly collectible whisky.

Tasting Notes

"The nose is hot (63.5%!) and herbaceous with "Herbes de Provence", mainly thyme, rosemary and parsley. Also some fruitier notes with candied apples, ripe lemons and oranges and marmalade make their appearance. The peat comes along nicely bringing heavier notes of chocolate, rubber and charcoal. Very expressive for a five year-old dram. On the palate, dark chocolate dominates with hints of dates, plums, candied fruits, and ripe grapes giving it a brandy touch to it. The peat is still very present but is completed with warm spices and a maritime influence. The finish is long and warm. Salt and pepper, with bitter dark chocolate. And lots of peat, of course!"
