Octomore's little brother Port Charlotte from Bruichladdich distillery is the peated NAS equivalent of 'The Classic Laddie'. Bottled at 50% ABV, the nose is obviously spirity and slightly rough with vegetal peatiness, brine and creamy citrus. With water, you get unripe banana, pickles and black pepper. Crisp and zesty in the arrival, the taste develops dry and mineral with honeydew melon, herbal spiciness and hints of oak. The finish is lasting and delicate with peat smoke and green tea. Although a bit pricey, it's not bad for a relatively young Islay Single Malt.

Nosing: Big peat, maritime, salty and vegetal. Sweet honey, strong heather, almost like an absurdly strong highland. Although this is an aggressive nose, it is not as aggressive as laphroaig 10, which is sort of my barometer for Islay drams at the moment. This is a wonderful nose.

Taste: peat, leather, salt, slight honey sweetness and strong vegetal grassiness. I also get the weird metallic taste, but cannot identify it, and it seems to fade quickly. Later tastes of fruity sweetness, almost a citrus sweetness without the zest of citrus.... Also the maritime saltiness and fresh ocean is on the tongue. Strange, but very nice. I would never have guessed this was 50% abv, as it seems much more mild in alcohol (I assume due to the aggressive tastes) Peat Smoke Honey Grass Heather Zitrus Maritime Notes

Finish: Long finish, character changes for me in fantastic fashion. First tastes of peat and leather diminish to a sweet vegetal tone that, for me, is like a highland malt, but with much more intense vegetal tastes.

Comment: I am admittedly a sucker for Islay peat, so this is no surprise that I am impressed by this dram. I like my laphroaig better, but will admit that this has a complexity that impresses. if you like the peaty whisky, get this now! I cannot wait to find a bottle of Islay Barley to compare.
