Port Charlotte 12yr Burns Malt (The Whisky Barrel) Review

Port Charlotte 12yr Burns Malt (The Whisky Barrel) I'm a huge fan of pretty much the everything that Bruichladdich distill (well except the Bruichladdich Rocks) and I seriously love Port Charlotte with that lovely creamy peat smoke and huge taste.

This single cask Port Charlotte really excites me.

Oh wow this is delicious, easy drinking for the ABV and full of creamy, fresh vanilla, and rice pudding, one of the best tasting whiskies I've had in a while

If you like the sound of this get over to The Whisky Barrel quick smart before it sells out.

Thanks to The Whisky Barrel for the official sample.

Tasting Notes & Details


Gentle creamy peat smoke, it's not offensive or too powerful, mossy green vegetation and creamy coconut milk, purple heather and lemongrass, earthy notes of digestive biscuit and slightly burned toast.


Sweet moss, heathery, lemon grass and chalk infused smoke, digestive biscuits and creamy vanilla infused rice pudding with toast


Delicious sweet and creamy with edges of smoke hanging about.
