Port Charlotte Transparency Fèis Ìle 2017
Peated Single Malt
Port Charlotte // Islay, Scotland
Released in celebration of the 2017 Fèis Ìle (Islay Festival), this bottle addresses the recent controversy surrounding the EU regulation on what age information can be listed on the bottle and in marketing materials of Scotch whisky. The youngest whisky is the only age that can be listed despite the fact that there are often older whiskies in the composition of the product. This is something Bruichladdich agrees with, but they go further with this bottling. They believe that if their customers wish to know this information, that they should provide it. Therefore, they have set up an online system to respond to queries. On their product page on their website, they've provided a field into which the customer can choose to input the batch code found on their bottle. The cask recipe will then be provided. For this single malt, 12 barrels have been utilized with seven different types of Bruichladdich whiskies. 100% Scottish barley was used and all barrels were aged on Islay. As is the case with all their whisky, there has been no color added nor is it chill-filtered. 1000 bottles of this heavily-peated single malt have been produced at an ABV of 56.4%.
