Port Charlotte  The Geordie Laddies

“The Geordie Laddies”  is what I gather is/was a North East syndicate that purchased a “Port Charlotte” distillation from Bruichladdich on a cask offer introduced when the distillery re-opened in 2001.

The initial purchase was by Gordon Homer for a “bloodtub”  Then at a local BBQ the purchase of the bloodtub came up which lead to them deciding to purchase a barrel along with about 9 friends. This was completed with the filling in December 2001 into a fresh Bourbon cask.
John Rennie one of the warehouse men predicted that the cask would be “perfect at 10”

Taken from a first fill Boubon cask at 64.4% the colour can be described as a rich gold.

At full strength there is the Islay smoke with peat, salt and spice on the nose.

Again at full strength the palate has the milder Islay characteristics of peat but with the sweeter style of vanilla and subtle spice.

The finish is long with the Port Charlotte style peatiness.

This whisky is a Smokey Phenolic whisky. See what other drams we have. Or Visit our whisky by taste section for other styles.
