Last Sunday I shared my tasting notes on PC5. Today it is time for Bruichladdich Port Charlotte PC6. I tasted both whiskies at The Golden Days in Gothenburg earlier this year. From before I had tasted PC8, PC9, PC10, PC11 and PC12. I felt very lucky to find the first two ones. Now I only miss PC7.
PC6 is named Cuairt-Beatha. It was distilled in 2001, matured in bourbon casks and Madeira casks for six years, and bottled in 2007 at 61,6 ABV. The outturn was 18000 bottles. I tasted from bottle 2076.
Gentle smoke and iodine on the nose. Rich and soft. It reminds me of the smell of medicine. Rich and smooth on the palate. Creamy. Chocolate and lime. The smoke is delicate, not rough at all. Caramel, salt, chilli and smoke on the finish. This whisky is delicate and delicious! Quite different from the more rough PC5. It was really interesting to compare these two.
My score: nose 24 / taste 24 / finish 24 / balance 24 = 96
