    Port Charlotte PC6

    Port Charlotte PC6..... Has anyone tried this one? My local store called me to let me know they will be receiving 2 bottles and asked me if I'd like them to put them aside for me (can you tell I'm a good customer? ). Anyways, what I can tell is that it's limited edition, cask strength, 6 year old madeira cask finished and Islay. Price is about $100. Seems like a lot to spend on a 6 yr old whisky. It has decent reviews though and I love Islay whisky etc....

    any thoughts....

    Re: Port Charlotte PC6

    PC6 is one of the newer highly peated malts from Bruichladdich. It's very young and very smoky. The Port Charlotte line is worth trying as it's a different type of smoky flavor than you find in other Islays. The series started with PC 5 in 2007 and is now up to PC8; PC6 seemed to be the least popular, and as a result, there still seems to be lots of PC6 around, but I think it's a pretty decent malt. $100 is actually a good price, it usually goes for closer to $140.

    Went to pick it up today but ended up passing on it. They had some van winkles that I took home instead. I just couldn't bring myself to spend the $100 on a 6 year old whisky when I can get some Talisker 18, HP 18, Laga 16, or Laph 18 or even the CS for a lot less money.

    You can get Laphroaig 18 for a lot less than $100? You certainly do have access to some good prices.

    I was just thinking the same. Good for you, James.

    I can get, and send to you, up to 3 bottles (as of yesterday) of the Laphroaig 18 for $75 each delivered anywhere in the lower 48. Until the end of the month that is. If you want it LMK.
