Product Description

It's been a while since we have been able to bring you the world's peatiest Single Malt but wait no longer! Just 52 tonnes of precious Islay barley were malted to produce this single farm Octomore - 09.3 edition. Raised in Irene’s Field on Octomore Farm in 2011, this uber-provenance single malt was later distilled and filled into 134 casks. Predominantly second-fill, the gentler influence of the wood allows more of the locally grown barley flavours to cut through the legendary peat smoke.

Key Stats are;

Malted to 133PPM

Distilled from 100% Islay grown Concerto barley, harvested in 2011 from Irene’s Field, Octomore Farm and distilled in 2012

Matured entirely on Islay in a combination of ex American whiskey and French wine casks Five aged years in 1st fill ex-American (25%), 3rd fill virgin oak (25%), 2nd fill Rivesaltes (20%), 2nd fill Syrah (20%), 2nd fill bourbon (10%)
