Port Charlotte SC:01 2012 Sauternes Cask Islay Single Malt Whisky, 55.2%

5 items left

The latest release in the Port Charlotte Cask Exploration Series is also the first to feature 100% Islay grown barley, peated to 40ppm.  Distilled in 2012, this beautiful whisky is matured in a combination of sherry butts, 1st and 2nd fill American whiskey barrels and finest sweet Sauternes Wine casks from Bordeaux. 

Bottled at 9 years old, the culmination of these efforts is a classic example of all that’s great about Port Charlotte:

Mellow, floral gorse hints are complimented by honeyed coconut and fudge before opening into the classic Port Charlotte sticky-sweet BBQ peat smoke.

A stunning display of Islay terroir and an intricate cask recipe, Port Charlotte whisky at its finest.

About the distillery

The Bruichladdich distillery on Islay is at the forefront of environmental action in Scotland's whisky industry. A recent project launched in 2021 aims to use sustainable energy to heat the distillery, creating only water as a waste product, eliminating all CO2 emissions.

Alongside their environmental credentials, Bruichladdich also proudly practices a very traditional approach to distilling that is fairly radical today. All their Single Malt Whiskies are based on Scottish Barley, with around half of that coming from Islay itself, and 5% organically grown.

Three whiskies in different styles are produced at Bruichladdich: The unpeated Bruichladdich bottles, the heavily peated Port Charlotte, and the ultra-heavily peated Octomore.

All Bruichladdich's whisky focus on terroir, quality, and careful cask maturation, with a degree of detail seen in few distilleries anywhere else in the world.
