Product Description

The 2nd release of a full 10 year old Octomore limited to 18,000 bottles with PPM levels of 167 and bottled at 57.3% ABV and aged in an interesting combination of Ex-Bourbon and Grenache Blanc wine casks (a first for Octomore and for me)

Nose: Heavy rain after a hot day on wet sand and pebbles on the coast, sweaty leather, smoked mandarin cheesecake, earthy smoke, oyster sauce, smoked mushroom pate, tobacco and oatmeal.

Palate: Smoked pear, salty apple, oat biscuits with smoked cheese, herbal lime notes, something floral and spicy in here too, peppery ripe orchard fruits.

Finish: Smoked greek yoghurt, earthy herbal, lime and elderflower cordial, salty goats cheese drying into a lozenge like vegetal finish.

The nose is a delight that just keeps on giving and the extra maturity here (most octomore is bottled at 5 years old) along with the funky wine cask finish has added some very interesting and diverse flavours, but then you would expect nothing less from Bruichladdich.
