Pl1 Elements of Islay: Sherried Port Charlottein Tasting , Bruichladdich
In case you didn’t notice, Pl1 got a Gold Medal at Malt Maniacs Awards 2012. I think it is the first time I see such an affordable whisky with a Gold in these awards.
“Slightly sherried, massive peat! This Port Charlotte bottled by Speciality Drinks for their range of Elements of Islay is a most interesting whisky”
This super peated whisky distilled at Bruichladdich distillery is fully matured in an awesome sherry cask. For sure this whisky isn't old but it does its job extremly well.
This dram has a cooper-like color.
Nose (89): more than average. peat, honey, wood, citrus.
Palate (89): dry, powerful. peat, honey, citrus, earth, floral.
Finish (89): longer than average. peat, nuts.So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this Pl1 - Elements of Islay Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky with 89 points over 100.
