THE HEAVILY PEATED
BRUICHLADDICH SCOTCH WHISKY
ISLAY SINGLE MALT
Distilled, matured and Bottled at Bruichladdich Distillery, Isle of Islay
This "Peat Project" bottling brings together spirit from a number of different vintages for added complexity, and is head distiller Jim McEwan's statement of his vision for Port Charlotte: The power of peat with elegance, complexity and the floral topnotes for which our Bruichladdich stills are famous.
Peated to 40 P P M and bottled using Islay spring water from the Octomore field of farmer James Brown.
The 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 - The floral elegance of Bruichladdich and heavy peat - could it work?
You will judge the results of this fascinating - and ongoing - mission for ourselves: The Port Charlotte Peat Project. Our mission was to explore the union of the elegance of spirit produced by the Bruichladdich stills and the heavily peated single malt style for which Islay is famous.
This spirit represents a great milestone for us at Bruichladdich. The Port Charlotte project has been a great - adventure - a journey with many twists and winds, and no few surprises along the way.
And here it is finally at 10 years - a landmark age for a whisky, and a opportunity for us to pause to look back over the road travelled, to reflect and to look again with fresh eyes on the fascinating road yet to come.
G. W. F. Hegel: "Thus to be independent of public opinion is the first formal condition of achieving anything great or rational wheter in life or in science".
This Port Charlotte Islay Single Malt Whisky has been distilled at Bruichladdich Distillery by master Distiller Jim McEwan in homage to the exceptional single malt produced in the village of Port Charlotte, Isle of Islay, until 1929.
Extraordinary to think of the great pride we felt when bottling P C 5 back in 2006, in our heart of hearts, none of us knew whether we' d still be around to celebrate P C 10.
This fantastic spirit's coming of age, it's been a long and rocky road but P C 10 is here and
This new Isle is the youngest distillery single malt has reached it's milestone - it's here to stay.
As we look forward to the rich future of this young Ileach, we bring with us the next generation here at Bruichladdich.

We believe Terroir Matters:
We believe in Islay, We believe in People.
We believe In Authenticity, Provenance and Traceability.
We believe in slow We believe In Challenging Convention
We believe in the Soul of the Artisan
Port Charlotte single malts proudly carry the name of the Islay village that clings to the shore of Loch Indaal, two miles south of Bruichladdich.
Although elegant and floral, these are heavily peated whiskies, evocative of the characteristic style of the old 19th century distillery that finally fell silent in 1929.
We believe that Islay whiskies should have an authenticity derived from where it is distilled and where it is matured, from the philosophies of those who distil it; a sense of place, of terroir, that speaks of the land, the barley and water from which it was made, and of the human soul that gave it life.
Bruichladdich has made commitments to Islay farmers who now grow barley for us to distil single malt from 100 % Islay barley for the first time in the Island's history.
Multiple farms, multiple terroirs our aim is to create a product of flawless integrity and the most thought provoking whisky possible.
6 Farms, 6 Terroirs: Coull, Kynagarry, Island, Rockside, Starchmill, Sunderland.
"Once again Land and Dram united".

PORT CHARLOTTE’S WHISKY RANGE RELAUNCHES
Bruichladdich distillery is relaunching its heavily-peated Port Charlotte single malt whisky this May with a range of new expressions.
Port Charlotte 10 Year Old
Here to stay: Port Charlotte 10 Year Old will be the brand’s first permanent expression
The Islay distillery is set to introduce four new whiskies under the Port Charlotte brand: Port Charlotte 10, Islay Barley 2011, MRC:01, and MC:01.
Each expression in the new range has been made from barley peated to 40ppm, and is presented in an opaque green glass bottle as ‘a nod to the heavily-peated Islay category’, with black labels.
Port Charlotte 10-year-old marks the first permanent introduction of an aged-stated bottling in the brand’s history, and will replace the current multi-vintage Port Charlotte Scottish Barley.
The expression, which is bottled at 50% abv and uses only Scottish barley, has been matured in first-fill American oak, refill American oak and refill French wine casks.
It will be available in domestic markets around the world, as well as in duty free for around £50 for a 70cl bottle, and is described as having smoky sweet notes of ‘coconut, vanilla custard, lemon honey, smoke oysters and sun baked salty sand’.
Port Charlotte Islay Barley 2011 is a new vintage comprised of whisky produced from barley grown on three Islay farms – Dunlossit, Sunderland and Kilchiaran. Bottled at 50% abv, the whisky has been matured in mostly first-fill American oak with some whisky aged in refill Syrah and Merlot wine casks. It will be available globally for around £60 per 70cl bottle.
Port Charlotte MRC:01 is a limited edition expression distilled in 2010, and matured in ex-wine casks from Bordeaux. Bottled at 59.2% abv, it will be available in domestic markets around the world for £90 per bottle.
Lastly, Port Charlotte MC:01 is a limited 2009 vintage matured in Marsala casks, which has been bottled at 56.3% abv and will be available in travel retail only. Its price is yet to be confirmed.
New range: Port Charlotte’s green and black identity now reflects Islay’s ‘heavily-peated style’
Douglas Taylor, CEO of Bruichladdich distillery, said: ‘Our distillery project is built around certain key principles which drive everything we do. The authenticity, provenance and transparency of our spirit is paramount.
‘Ultimately, we are a collective of like-minded people, passionate about this island and the single malt whisky we make here.’
Port Charlotte single malt is named after the nearby silent distillery of Port Charlotte, which ceased operation in 1929.
Bruichladdich distillery first began distilling heavily peated malt for Port Charlotte whisky in 2001, with the first bottling – PC5 – released as a five-year-old malt in 2006. Port Charlotte Scottish Barley was introduced in 2013 under new owner Rémy Cointreau.

ADD TO BASKET
With over 200 different cask types maturing in our warehouses, our cask exploration series showcases the influence of wood on our heavily peated spirit. Bottled at 59.2% alcohol and in limited numbers, we introduce the Port Charlotte MRC:01 2010. Distilled from 100% Scottish barley, from the Invernesshire region, this sweet and fruity spirit has spent time in first fill American whiskey casks and second fill French wine casks. These component parts have been combined and matured for an extra year in the finest French oak from the Bordeaux left bank.
Nose – Initially you are met with a summer fruit and peat smoke extravaganza! Raspberry and cherry, with Turkish delight and smoky driftwood embers burst from the glass jostling for attention. There is a distinctly summer feel to this dram, no brooding peat monster it has a light, bright and fruity air. As the whisky opens you find the Islay sea breeze, ozone and salty. The oak, both American and French give real depth to the dram, classic vanilla, toasted bread, chocolate, roasted coffee beans, liquorice walnut and almond. Each time you go back to the glass there seems to be a bubble of red berry and ripe plum bursting under your nose.
Palate – Certainly warming at 59.2%, lively and sweet with icing sugar and marshmallow, bound in smoke. There is a rush to capture all that is taking place. Sweet red fruit and peat smoke melt away slightly as the power of the oak comes through with tobacco leaf and toasted oak. Maple syrup, pecan and coffee are complimented by hints of orange and cooked peach. There is a complexity here that didn’t seem possible on the first sip. As you go back to the glass that initial rush of flavour has become a more complete experience. Nowthere is salt spray, dry smoke and the oak is more prominent, raspberry and plum combine with vanilla and butterscotch.
Finish – On the finish the peat smoke is a little more medicinal than normal, think bandages and creosote. A dryness from the oak tells of the toasting of the French and the char of the American and the final combination in premium French oak together. The influence of the extra maturation in sumptuous first growth casks has added a layer of fruit that weaves its way through the smoke and into the heart of the whisky. The spirit is viscous and textured allowing a long finish where creamy vanilla, spicy clove and ripe peach melt away from the powerful peat smoke allowing it to finish alone, leaving the Port Charlotte DNA firmly in place.
Character – Lively, sunny, rosy, a wonderful experience and superb combination of fruit laden French oak, strong peat smoke and Islay maturation
