Description

This exceptional Single Malt is the fourth edition released by Port Charlotte distillery, commercialised by Bruichladdich distillery. Named “Ar Dutchas”, this bottle pays a tribute to the Gaelic ancestors of Islay, but also to the heritage and values passed on the next generation.

This whisky shows surprising strength, as a free, self-confident spirit, and as independent as those who crafted it. At 40ppm of peat strentgh, refined in American oak cask and grading 60,5° at cask strength, Port Charlotte PC8 is quite the manly spirit.

*PPM –  phenols parts per million, measuring the influence of the oily smoke peat infusing the germinated barley during the drying process. The longer the exposure, the highest the ppm value is. A well peated Islay whisky reaches a 40-50 ppm. But every whisky still develops its very own character and mouthfeel sensation, depending on the style of each distillery.

Colour: sunny chartreuse.

Nose: seaspray of peat smoke battering spicy aromas of lemon and deeper scents of heather and myrtle. Sweet oak and malted barley appear in a lull, just before the next wave bashes in.

Palate: rich and thick with a full-bodied, remarkable viscosity, smouldering peat fire and a rich, typical Port Charlotte mellow.

Finish: admirable. This expression shows that the characteristic maturation of Port Charlotte brings in formidable marine notes, and unfathomable depth to the sweet oakiness.
