I have something to tell you: I love Port Charlotte whisky. When Bruichladdich announced that Octomore 6.2 & PC11 will be travel retail exclusive I was quite disappointed at first but then I found out it’s heading toward our local duty free shop in TLV!
Well, as you can imagine, most of the local peat lovers grabbed a bottle (or two) and even I managed to get part of a bottle (shared with friends) 🙂
Back to the whisky itself – it’s the 7th release in Bruichladdich PC series (started with PC5), it’s heavily peated and in cask strength, so enough words and lets taste it, OK?
Bruichladdich Port Charlotte PC11 (11 YO, 59,5%, $150 in TLV Airport)
What would be a trip to Scotland without meeting friends and sharing a few drinks? As I’m quite active on twitter, I’ve made lots of friends over the last few years and It was a rare opportunity to (finally) meet some in person, so we’ve setup a meeting at the SMWS venue on Queens Street in Edinburgh.
SMWS, the Scotish Malt Whisky Society for you, is practically the largest whisky club on earth (30,000 and counting). You pay annual subscription and get access to unique cask strength bottling done every month which you can buy or taste at the venues. This is what you get to choose from at the venue:
Impressive selection ah?
