Review: Bruichladdich, Port Charlotte “PC-7,” Cask #1215

May 11th, 2011

Bruichladdich, Port Charlotte “PC-7,” Cask #1215, 7 year old, 63.4%, $120

A single cask from the distillery’s peated “Port Charlotte” line of whiskies. Well behaved for such youth. Nice honeyed malt and soft caramel base with good viscosity as a bed for tarry peat, licorice stick, freshly-ground pepper, and cocoa, along with a kiss of sauternes, delicate pit fruit, smoked seaweed, and a lingering coastal accent. Long, warming finish. (A Park Avenue Liquor exclusive.)

Advanced Malt Advocate magazine rating: 90

    This is one of those ones where I wonder how it takes water– cause I am almost never in the mood to have a whole dram of 60+% alcohol…

    Love these retail exclusive reviews. Can’t write enough of ‘em so far as I’m concerned:)

    Was this ACE-ed, or whatever Bruichladdich calls it now? I saw a Sauterne descriptor, and product shot says something about cask exploration
