Port Charlotte Islay Barley 2014 embodies everything an Islay whisky can and should be. As well as adding complexity and depth to this single malt, the Islay grown barley goes beyond just the pursuit of flavour - evoking a true sense of place.

Located within 15 miles of the distillery, each of our eight local farming partners undertook the risk of growing in challenging conditions to deliver the barley used for this 2014 vintage.

Being located on Scotland’s rugged west coast, unpredictable weather, and grazing wild geese and deer means a successful harvest on Islay is never a given. But it’s a risk worth taking, resulting in a single malt with total traceability and unparalleled provenance.

Bottled at 50% ABV and peated to 40 PPM, the maturation profile consists of 84% in first fill bourbon casks, 8% in second fill Virgin oak and 8% in second fill Bordeaux wine casks. With notes of malty digestive biscuits and peat paving the way for a sweet medley of apricot, peach and ripe melon, this 2014 release holds fruit and smoke in perfect balance.
