Bruichladdich Distillery aims to express its origins—the island of Islay—through its whiskies, including the heavily peated Port Charlotte 10 year old. The whisky was named No. 4 in Whisky Advocate’s 2018 Top 20, scoring 93 points and impressing the blind tasting panel with its balance of peat, fruit, malt, and rich character. Bruichladdich head distiller Adam Hannett gives some background on the whisky’s creation and how it came to be a distinct single malt unto itself.
