Port Charlotte MRC: 01 2010 Single Malt Scotch Whisky
This new heavily peated 7 Year Old Port Charlotte was produced using 100% Scottish barley by the lovely people at Bruichladdich. It has been married together for a year in a red wine casks from one of the finest châteaux on Bordeaux’s Left Bank.
Peated to 40ppm and distilled in 2010, 50% of this whisky was matured in first-fill American whiskey casks and 50% in second-fill French wine casks, before spending 12 months in exceptionally high provenance French wine barrels. We have been sworn to secrecy on where that finishing oak came from, but if you know that the C in MRC stands for cask, the rest isn’t hard to work out. And what came out of those incredible casks offers up peat smoke, red summer berries, praline, roasted peaches, boiled sweets, marzipan, barbeque sauce, smoked ham, barista aprons, maple syrup and sea salt. It’s a very complex dram, as you would expect from two titans of the alcoholic beverage world.
Port Charlotte was founded in 1829. Although the name changed to Lochindaal, whisky production continued for a full century until it was finally closed in 1929. With only a couple of warehouses left standing and remaining stocks becoming more elusive than unicorns, it has quickly become the stuff of Islay legends. However, following notes made by the brewing and distilling historian Alfred Barnard, Bruichladdich has lovingly resurrected the brand and the spirit of the early pioneers who lived in the village of Port Charlotte.
