Product Description

Along with the Glenglassaugh Octaves un-peated this duo from this revitalised distillery were among the best new releases of 2016.

An Octave cask is one of the smallest used for whisky maturation and normally around 20 litres in capacity (200 litres are the norm for most Ex-Bourbon casks) which allows the whisky to mature quicker and take on more flavour and colour.

Nose: Smoked nutella on rye toast, malt loaf, earthy sultana and raisin, a distant hint of a garden bonfire, leafy and savoury notes, polished leather and antique oak. Mossy fudge, salted caramel, root ginger.

Palate: Juicy maltloaf with smoked butter, aromatic roast pork fat with sweet spice and bbq notes, salted caramel, ginger latte, rich dried fruit and mulchy forest floor smoke embers.

Finish: That smoked nutella note again with salted toffee and caramel, fat and juicy with well integrated oak and very long with hints of smoked ginger & rum fudge.

Just goes to show age is just a number, one of the best non age statements around and complexity here that makes it feel older.

93 points Jim Murray's Whisky Bible

"Because of the apparent extra degree of oil, this really is a treat. Quite splendid and scarily seductive malt."
