Product Description

Just the 4th release of 10 year old Octomore from Bruichladdich and the first in nearly 2 years. Aged in a combination of American Oak and Virgin Oak casks, this was peated t0 208 ppm and as always bottled at cask strength and without colouring or filltration.

This is a grown up Octomore, relaxed and refined. What is lost in vitality by being aged for 10 years is more than made up for with a sense of calmness, development and complexity.

Official Tasting Notes

Nose - Wonderful bouquet of peat and fruit. Nectarine and citrus fruits with notes of pineapple and mango, a depth of rich sweetness and complexity. Vanilla and oak, sugar, nutty and vibrant. With age the fruit comes through so well and the depth of flavour is wonderful, more exotic fruits and that citrus and minerality character, which is the DNA of the spirit.

Palate - Wonderful salty tang on the lips, leading into a viscous and honey like texture. Beautiful fruit notes and sweet oak make this a joy to hold on the palate, the peach, ripe pineapple, mango, dried apricot and peach notes are beautifully weighted against the smoke and oak. the extra age and combination of casks bring a level of maturity to this expression of Octomore that gives a new dimension to the understanding of this exceptional Single Malt.

Finish - Oak driven, coconut, tobacco, vanilla then smoke. The time in the cask has calmed the smoke, both through the phenols lowering naturally over time and the influence of the oak becoming greater.
