This is the last of the 2001 vintage of age-numbered Port Charlotte expressions, PC8. This comes with the nickname 'land of our heritage'. This is very well-peated to 40ppm. Matured in American Oak and bottled at cask strength. There are six different tin designs and the release is limited to 30,000 numbered bottles. Nose: A draft of sea spray and peat greets you with spicy pepper and lemon aromas. Then the sweetness of oak and malted barley burst through. Palate: Viscous, rich and oily. Peat fire flavours. Waves of Islay wash over the palate. An original Islay darm, unlike any other. Finish: Dreams come true and desires fulfilled! This prodigy of Islay west coast clearly shows that coastal maturation is the key element as waves of marine notes add the vital spark to the oak sweetness of the spirit.
