Heavily peated contender.
 
Bruichladdich is one of the most impressive distilleries in Scotland, the World even. It was built in 1881 by the Harvey brothers, who came from a dynastic Whisky family. The brothers had wanted to create a distillery that was the very antithesis of an Islay farm distillery. They built a cathedral-like, state-of-the-art Victorian still house, where they used 6m tall stills, which was unheard of at that time, and way ahead of its time.
 
Today, the distillery remains pretty much the same as it did over 100 years ago. Their belief is, as the French culinary saying goes, "it is in the oldest pots that the best soup is made". Slow fermentation, slow distillation, in very traditional, wooden vats and huge washes made from towering Douglas Fir.
 
Part of their heavily peated range, Bruichladdich’s Port Charlotte is a journey through its Islay home and Scottish heritage. The peat is cranked up to 40PPM and is perfect for all you smoke lovers out there. This expression takes the usual floral notes that are characteristic of Bruichladdich and intertwines them magnificently with a strong heft of peat. It also throws in some sea air for good measure, capturing the roving waves around its coastal birthplace.

Scotch Whisky is almost never aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation, while many times ageing process and flavour finishing is concluded in various wine casks, such as sherry or port.

Jack,
I hated it on my first drink. But I bought the bottle and kept drinking it and now love it. First time you might need to water it down. I just add ice and and enjoy the strong flavor as it changes with the melting ice.

Jonathan,
I finally had opportunity to try it this week at a lounge and it seemed like it had a lot of flavor going on but the antiseptic listerine mouthwash taste stood out too much for me. I had my colleague take a sip and he too said, listerine and didn’t like it. I don’t know, perhaps it’s suppose to taste like that but was just not for me.

Pierce,
This is perhaps my favorite Islay of all time, good balance of smoke and peat, and for the price it simply can't be beat.

Almost as perfect (for me, anyways) as the Laphroaig 25y – with the added benefit of a price that won’t ruin me. Very smokey, not too much peat (compared to others), and generally a pleasure to enjoy.

Tim,
Peaty and complex, but a little too medicinal. I like it, and bet an 18+ year would be really great!

This is one of my favourite Islay single malts. It is very peaty with hint of smoke and citrus.
