The third 10 Year Old release of Octomore, distilled in 2008 from 100% Scottish grown Optic barley peated to 167ppm. The spirit was then matured on Islay in a combination of the following:
Full maturation 1st fill Port pipes (37%),
Full maturation 1st fill Cognac casks (31%),
Full maturation 2nd fill ex American whiskey casks (20%),
An additional parcel from 3 years first fill ex American, 2 years virgin oak, final 6 years in ex American whiskey casks (12%),
Bruichladdich's quest for experimentation has produced absolute crackers in the past with Octomore delighting many a peat head. This one is limited to 12,000 bottles only.
Official Tasting Notes
Character: A dram of depth and worth taking some time to get to know. Greater than the sum of its parts and the parts that combine to make it have an individual story of their own.
Aroma: There is a richness, chocolate, tobacco, bonfire smoke, leather. Vanilla custard, blueberry dry straw and pear drops.
Taste: Warming, spicy – mulled wine. Leather and tobacco, malt sugar, icing sugar. All wrapped in earthy peaty smoke. Dry on the palate.
Finish: Oak driven, coconut, tobacco, vanilla, then smoke. In balance 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.
