Peated to 40ppm and bottled using Islay spring water from the Octomore field of farmer James Brown.
This Heavily Peated Port Charlotte spirit was some of the first to run after we had resurrected this wonderful Victorian distillery. While our core Bruichladdich spirit is elegant, complex and unpeated, a persistent thought intrigued us: what would happen if we used our tall, long necked Victorian stills to produce a heavily peated spirit? The floral elegance of Bruichladdich and heavy peat - could it work?
You will judge the results of this fascinating and ongoing mission for yourself. The Port Charlotte Peat Project.
So this is the first of the now fully established Peated Port Charlotte whiskies.
