PORT CHARLOTTE/ Port Charlotte PC7, distilled in 2001, bottled in 2008 when 7 years old. Limited to 24000 bottles. Jim McEwan: “The peaty flavour is rich and vibrant reaching deep onto the palate accompanied by dark warm molasses with hints of dates and bitter chocolate. The second layer brings the moorland mossy flavours bringing complexity and contrast, weaving beautifully with the smoke, and then the marine breezes add their unique freshness, lifting the senses on an updraft of the Queen of the Hybrides. The history and culture of an Islay in the palm of your hand”.
