Port Charlotte 2010 OLC-01

Bruichladdich is perhaps the most experimental distillery with their releases, thanks to their wide range of different maturing stocks and different casks. This Port Charlotte goes a step further even for them, combining whiskies matured in first and second fill American whiskey casks, Vin Doux Naturel casks, and second fill Syrah casks, before the resulting malt is finally ACE'd ("Additional Cask Enhancement" - or finished, to you and me) in Fernando de Castilla Oloroso sherry casks for 18 months. This marriage of 40ppm Scottish barley spirit, with all the different cask influences, creates a complex, peaty, fruity-sweet dram with layers on layers of different flavours.

<b>Official Tasting Notes<br> Nose: </b>Initially lovely earthy peat smoke and dark fruit, fig predominantly and toffee. As the aromas start to open soft peach and honey appear and a nutty nougat note sets the tone. Baked orange and a hint of mulled wine spice. The peat smoke notes are constant and start to bring out some resinous woody aromas, the longer you allow it to open the more depth you discover, more roasted coffee, syrup and citrus, more chocolate and crushed sea shells.<br> <b>Palate: </b>As soon as this dram touches your lips you feel the soft oily texture and then, as it coats the palate a subtle dryness changes the tone. The leading notes from the Oloroso cask and the peat smoke define the identity of the whisky but underneath there is a fruity sweetness – figs, orange and peach with a nutty nougat note. With another sip the darker notes of tobacco, boot polish and more earthy smoke give a pepperiness that really draws you into this magnificent whisky.<br> <b>Finish: </b>The finish is a dry earthy peat smoke with lime and figs. A chocolate and vanilla note comes through and some salty, sandy character. Peat embers give a last hint of smoke.
