Fishermans Retreat Edition No.5 Port Charlotte Haut-Brion Cask
A true Islay malt with a beautiful smokey essence, typical of a Port Charlotte distillation, which is unfortunately no longer with us. The long-forgotten recipe was brought back to life thanks to the Bruichladdich distillery, at the hands of master distiller Jim McEwan.
Aromas A smokey but subtle hit initially, with other flavours becoming apparent, vanilla, orange and a hint of sweet caramel, oak is constant throughout.
Palate A beautiful warming dram, hold in your mouth and feel the gentle heat take over your senses. Then the flavours come rushing through, sweet citrus notes, oak is always in the mix, a slight saltiness coming through from the shores of Lochindaal. A real winter warmer, ideal for the flask on a winter warmer, or a goose shoot!! Or you can just pour a dram and enjoy in front of a roaring log fire at home!!!
Whichever you choose this whisky will be a great companion.
