Product Description

The 2nd release in the new 10. Octomore series from Bruichladdich. Distilled in 2013 from the 2012 harvest, the Octomore 10.3 has been brought home by farmer James Brown. Taking on the challenge of growing Islay Barley, he braces the conditions of the wet and wild west coast to combine an exploration of Islay terroir and stratospheric smoke. For the first time, the .3 is matured for six aged years but crucially only in ex-American oak.

These top-quality quercus robur casks have gently coaxed this Octomore spirit into life in Warehouse 16, next to our 10.1 edition. Having housed our Scottish and Islay barley in the same conditions, with a lower PPM, solely in American oak from Concerto barley, the flavour difference between them is attributed to the growing conditions of the barley’s respective locale.

Produced from Concerto Barley on Octomore Farm, Islay and peated to a PPM of 114..
