Port Charlotte An Turas Mor er den første standardtapning som er gjort av Bruichladdichs torvpregede produksjon. Port Charlotte har tidligere vært sluppet som spesialtapningene PC5, PC6, PC7 og PC8, i begrenset antall eksemplarer og med svært høyt alkoholinnhold. An Turas Mor er satt sammen av 5 til 8 år gammel whisky lagret på bourbonfat.

NMWL smaksnotater

Farge Uten vann Med vann
Lys gyllen farge Lukt: Svært delikat duft med lett torvpreg og tydelig kornpreg, intens sitrus, lett og elegant, svært frisk og godt balansert, lett krydret og fruktig (epler), noe kakao, solbær, ung stil.

Smak: Svært myk med god fedme, frisk i munnen (peppermynte/polkagris), følger lukta svært godt, kommer opp med baconcrisp med sennep etter noen sekunder i munnen (kjente toner fra PC7). Svært god konsentrasjon til tross for ung alder.

Ikke vurdert lukt.

Ikke vurdert smak.

Ettersmak: Veldig bra lengde. Frisk og maltpreget med tydelig torvpreg

Gilded Lily I love the range of aromatics that rise from the glass, almost as one, to greet you. The peaty smokiness together with the vanilla sweetness from the Bourbon casks is truly magical. This is followed by a real spicy black pepper and lemon spiciness twist, then little wavelets of saltiness ripple over the palate like an incoming tide, accompanied by flavours and aromas of Islay’s heather moor botanicals and ancient pine forests. Waiting patiently to emerge is nutmeg, cinnamon, wild mint and the fantastic malty sweetness of spring barley. Together they create a magical tapestry woven together like the threads of an Islay tweed. There is a brilliant creaminess in the texture of the spirit which imparts an evenness of flavours across the palate and helps to cool the peat fire warmth which is arousing all sorts of Islay’s Celtic Passion. It’s a spirit with strong character and absolute honesty. Nothing added and nothing taken - which makes this a unique single malt.
It’s a beautiful waltz of aromas, scents, flavours and feelings moving across the palate. It’s a captivating, uplifting experience to enjoy the art of traditional handcrafted distillation, without any additives or the removal of the natural oils from the sun ripened barley.
Port Charlotte is our son created and loved by all at Bruichladdich Distillery. We have done our absolute best to ensure that ancient traditions and skills were adhered to in order that you can enjoy single malt at its most natural.
Ettersmak: The finish is a brilliant mix of vanilla sweetness and peat smoke with a splash of green fruit syrup and it lingers long and mellow giving total satisfaction.

Farge ikke vurdert Maritim nese av torv, tauverk, salt og seilduk. Flott kornpreg, med overliggende toner av ren torv og tørr myr. Skogbunn, vanilje og blomster. Bourbonpreget anslag med markant torv og vanilje. Dernest mye mer torv, salt, og utpreget maritim
Ettersmak: Avslutter med korn, mer tauverk og mer torv. God konsentrasjon og lengde
Oppsummering: Flott fedme, godt råvarepreg, rent torvpreg, fint samspill mellom destillat og fat.

Straw Port Charlotte in its naked truth, and believe me it’s an entrancing truth. We’re far from many attempts at making peated malt at distilleries that usually don’t do peat (not specifically accusing anybody here of course, and of course not Arran), or maybe is it because Bruichladdich used to be peated in the old days? This is beautifully clean and superbly mineral, with some paraffin (nice paraffin, not the paraffin that can suggest a flaw), graphite, coal, linseed oil, even motor oil, wet rocks, a little raw wool, earth, then a little fresh mint and dill… gets then sootier, in a perfect manner. A very mineral Riesling-malt, which I just cannot not love.
Water: pass.
Probably a little less zingy than in the nose, and certainly fruitier, with even unexpected notes of rum (rather white). Other than that it’s rather more medicinal than expected, slightly camphory, briny, liquoricy, getting ashier and sootier again after a while. Some liquorice wood as well. Maybe wee tad less distinctive than on the nose but it’s still rather perfect
Ettersmak: It’s long, clean, warming, rather more herbal and minty. An earthy rootiness in the aftertaste.
Oppsummering: Not just peat, Port Charlotte. I’m sure you see what I mean. This with two or three more years will make it above 90 in my book, sure bet (as I’m sure any 9 or 10yo 2001 would).
