Bruichladdich Port Charlotte 10 Year
"Smoky, peaty. Insidious malt. Don't know where the orange comments come from. Maybe they've had orange stuff with or before. Bruichladdich Port Charlotte 10 Year is my second favourite after Jura.
"NOT as dry on the palate as an Ardbeg, but drier on the nose. Big vanilla. Floral, but less vegetal than AbG. Custard. I do * not * get any real presence of iodine or medicinality here. Custardy cream-like mouthfeel. Pleasantly sweet. Well balanced. Luxurious and altogether delicious. Applause for true Craft!
Bruichladdich Port Charlotte 10 Year is very, very close to the Ardbeg Ten. Perhaps a lighter-weight Ardbeg."
Not as good as ardbeg 10 yet costs much more. It’s almost as expensive as the Uigeadail which is miles better. I’m glad they released a pc with an age statement as a standard offering but they also raised the price too much on it.
Experience wise, Bruichladdich Port Charlotte 10 Year is a fairly good standard Islay malt. For an entry-level (10yo) it is rather good. Nevertheless, it is not substantially better than its Islay siblings, for instance, Ardbeg 10. Surely, it is worth a full bottle purchase. However, you should be aware that there are other classic peaters that are just as good and more affordable.
