What’s Whisky Club? $ 100 for 10 whiskies. But also, an educational journey for all, that will take you around the world (of whiskies).
Bruichladdich Distillery is a small operation in Islay that punches above its weight. Originally a producer of non-peated whiskies only, it has since bottled up some of the world’s best-peated whiskies.
For our August whisky of the month, Tattersalls is smoking up the Bruichladdich Port Charlotte 10-Year-Old Heavily Peated Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky. The Port Charlotte is Bruichladdich’s peated branding and encompasses multiple releases, of which this is their flagship, released in 2018 which scored 95 points in Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible.
Tasting notes are as follows:
Colour: Gold but well into the amber territory, an indication of the wine cask
Nose: Super briny smoke, but with a lovely citrus explosion behind it
Palate: The nose comes through heavily on the mouth, the second sip is a fruity zest but still Smokey. Strangely getting a taste of pan-frying bacon
Water: Just two drops and you’ll get extra sweetness on the nose, but still salt and smoke are present
Finish: Imagine eating a meaty piece of bacon by the sea with a fire pit
This whisky is perfect to introduce someone to peat. It is a smirkingly abject Smokey number with coastal vibes, worthy of a special evening by the fire.
