NO-ONE knows what the original Bruichladdich of 1881 actually tasted like.
There are neither bottles in existence nor tasting notes. What would it have tasted like?
The Port Charlotte Peat Project sets out to answer this conundrum.
This single malt whisky, distilled from heavily peated barley at Bruichladdich Distillery, is called Port Charlotte to differentiate it from traditional, unpeated Bruichladdich.
The Peat Project is distilled from barley peated to 40ppm, and matured in American Oak, in warehouses at the nearby village of Port Charlotte.
It is a multi-vintage, assembled from several different vintages and harvest characteristics, for intriguing complexity.
The Peat Project replaces the previous releases of 3D, PEAT and An Turas Mor bottlings.
