Port Charlotte, a fine dame

September 2, 2006

Port Charlotte
Two days ago, Bruichladdich launched the Port Charlotte Evolution PC5 Cask Strenght. The PC5 marks a new way forward compared to earlier Bruichladdich malts.

PC5 is peated to a level of 40 ppm, which puts it right up there with Laphroaig in terms of peatiness. PC5 Evolution is bottled at cask strength – and at 63.5% abv it exceeds that standard strength of your average cask strength whisky. (By comparison Laphroaig 10 year-old Cask Strength runs around 55.7% abv).

Not only is it an uncharacteristically heavily-peated whisky (most Bruichladdich expressions are lightly peated or unpeated), it’s the first Bruichladdich expression to be released that was distilled following the 2001 renovation of the once closed distillery.

PC5 is non-chill filtered and has no color added like all Bruichladdich tastes.

Be one of the lucky few to get your hands on one of the 1000 bottles out there.
