This first permanent release of Port Charlotte 10-year-old replaces the multi-vintage cuvee Scottish barley. As the flagship Port Charlotte it showcases the elegance and smoky barbecue qualities of our spirit. A new bespoke green glass bottle is a nod to the traditional heavily-peated malts of “Islay”, but unlike many is conceived, distilled, matured and bottled on Islay.
Ageing for 10 years on the shores of Lochindaal has had a profound effect on this spirit. Like sunshine on a winters day, this Port Charlotte 10 brings clarity and lightens the mood, welcoming and brightening the future.
*Nose : There is citrus fruit, coaxed from the glass with a drop of water, gentle lemon meringue and clementine. Breathe deeply and the floral aromas of wild thyme, heather and sea pink bring you to this Atlantic coast.
*Palate: noticeable delicacy and softness in texture and style. Again, the balance of flavour is superb as the smoke wraps loosely around the sweetness drawn from deep within the oak. Coconut, vanilla custard, lemon honey combines with smoked oysters and sun baked salty sand.
*Finish : sublime, smoky sure, but also the soft sweetness of fudge and malted barley, orange, mango and Banoffee pie hinting of the depth and quality of the oak.
