Product Description

Another Octomore by Bruichladdich. This is matured in ex-Bourbon barrels and is peated to a whopping 208ppm.

96.5 points Jim Murray's Whisky Bible (Highest score for an Octomore release)

" A gargantuan malt which will make short work of the feint hearted. This, also was the whisky which Islay whisky maker par excellence Jim Mcewen decided to bow out on."

Natural Colour, non chill filtered and made from Scottish Barley.

Nose: A sense of the fresh barley with sea spray, lemon thyme or balm, pear drops, almond pastry, a touch of the hospital/bandage but more of a soapy-fresh peat smoke, vanilla fudge, and minerally/wet sand on Islay, touch of mint.

Palate: Lemon boiled sweets, poached pears in syrup, vanilla pod, clove and leather. Greek honey yoghurt and of course plenty of chewy smoke with a peppery-grapefruit pith like mouthfeel and even a mojito like mix.

Finish: Dry and sappy vanilla, salty citrus, some ouzo like notes, smoked melon, lemon balm, smoked barley and fresh spicy oatmeal and lingering peppery oak.

One of the most approachable of the Octomore releases and as always do not let the PPM levels fool you into thinking this is just about the peat, it is much more complex and nuanced than you would expect from a 5 year old malt.
