Bruichladdich Port Charlotte MC:01

Travel retail typically gets a bad rap. And it’s from me as well, don’t act like I’m going to say otherwise. It’s typically used as a place where experiments that just didn’t make it belong. However every so often a company puts something there that perks us up. Previously Bruichladdich Port Charlotte CC:01 was one of them, their peated (but not as peated as Octomore)… Continue reading Bruichladdich Port Charlotte MC:01

Bruichladdich Port Charlotte 16 2001 Archives

Thanks to /u/xile_ for this sample. Port Charlotte came up during a tasting the other day. We were discussing a new bottling of it from a different independent bottler, and someone mentioned that it was “the oldest Port Charlotte on the market”. When asked how old, the reply was “17-years-old”. Which makes everyone pause for a second. Port Charlotte is still fairly new, yet it’s become the… Continue reading Bruichladdich Port Charlotte 16 2001 Archives

Bruichladdich Port Charlotte Valinch Cask Exploration 14 Taigh-Bathair Bannaichte

Thanks to /u/ForbiddenWaffle for pouring me this dram. So you’re at the Bruichladdich distillery. And you’ve done one of their amazing tours. You walk into the little gift shop at the end. Love a little shop. This isn’t filled with the usual knickknacks though. Instead, it has to pour your own samples. If you happened to be there in 2017, you could have poured Bruichladdich Port Charlotte Valinch… Continue reading Bruichladdich Port Charlotte Valinch Cask Exploration 14 Taigh-Bathair Bannaichte

Bruichladdich Port Charlotte Triple Review – The IBs

Thanks to /u/xile_ for the sample of the last one. Independent bottlers are a boon that I think I take for granted. I’ve had quite a few IB scotches. And the odd thing is I now go back to OB scotches, and while some are still interesting, you can really feel the effect of the industry on the whisky. Whisky, in our capitalistic society, is expected to… Continue reading Bruichladdich Port Charlotte Triple Review – The IBs

Bruichladdich Port Charlotte Triple Review – The OBs

Thanks to /u/throzen and /u/scotchable for these drams. This last year I’ve done the unthinkable: I made a 31 part multi review. I ended up learning a lot about my own reviews from writing and drinking that. For one, there is such thing as too much of a good thing. As well, I should split up my multi reviews unless very necessary. Lucky for me, I had already been… Continue reading Bruichladdich Port Charlotte Triple Review – The OBs

Bruichladdich Port Charlotte PC7 Sin An Doigh Ileach

Thanks to /u/devoz for sharing this one with me. So I’m with Devoz and he thinks “Hey, TOModera has skipped some Port Charlottes. I better remedy that.” And like any playthrough of any Final Fantasy game, he has plenty of remedies at the end of the day. Bruichladdich Port Charlotte PC7 Sin An Doigh Ileach is the 3rd in the PC line, released in the 7th year of… Continue reading Bruichladdich Port Charlotte PC7 Sin An Doigh Ileach

Bruichladdich Port Charlotte Micro-Provenance Single Cask Threesome

Thanks to /u/throwboats for these three samples. And I stole his picture for them too. And then I used some of his sugar for my tea. While he nodded off for a second. Wake up people! With all the things that are happening in the world, it’s the New World Order taking over! What? No, I’m not talking about recently political upheavals, major tragedies, events, or any… Continue reading Bruichladdich Port Charlotte Micro-Provenance Single Cask Threesome
