Very dark caramel, and chocolate…
Bruichladdich Port Charlotte 10yo 2018
Bruichladdich’s peated spirit. And by peated, I mean hugely peated, at 40ppm up there with the Port Ellen threesome, but in that unique Laddie style.
The official notes read, “On the palate there is a 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”.
From the WhiskyWash, “Dry, dense, and woodsy, with plenty of deep, nutty caramelized flavors. I get very dark caramel, and chocolate as well as a smoldering, insence-y kind of smoke as well as a savory meatiness. A splash of water releases a plume of warm campfire smoke, burnt barley sugar, salted lemons, peppercorns, and a bitter herbal tone like chamomile or yarrow”.
