After a bit of trouble sourcing this discontinued bottle, the SSWC gang got their face into this meaty Port Charlotte offering from Bruichladdich.. mmmmm!
We're off sea fishing in little loch broom! With a little chai tea and refreshers to keep us going. Our lunch is keylime pie, pineapple, toffee sauce and rum and raisin icecream. A little heavy on dessert but we'll catch a salty mackerel and sit on summer straw bails to eat it before washing with coal tar soap. At least that's what the nose suggests.
On the palette we've left our Glava out overnight to taste again in the morning. Oh what a night it was! We can still taste our dinner - Goan fish curry, the chilli, blood oranges, apples and sticky toffee pudding. The rest is hazy but bitumen, iodine and chewing on hay are on the tongue, with hints of raw flesh and used condoms for some.
The PC is one of the earlier Port Charlotte offerings from Bruichladdich.
Finish & Comments
There's more British pudding to finish with parkin, seasalt fudge and taffy, and some burnt caramel too. The salt continues with rockpools before spinach, a basketball, raita and star anise. Then we're off fishing again on Kilphedir burn.
