Aged: 5 years
Product of: United Kingdom
Distilled at Bruichladdich Distillery using only Scottish Barley. Bruichladdich is usually an unpeated brand of single malt but in contrast, at 167ppm, its Octomore alter ego is said to be the world's most heavily peated whisky. Aged 5 years at Bruichladdich’s, this is the sixth edition of Octomore.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 10/11/2013
Clear, mid golden amber.
mouldering embers, vegetal peat, baked apple and smoked streaky bacon.
Honeyed smoky sweetness – strangely reminiscent of mezcal. Vanilla, toasted rye bread, dry nuttiness and poached pear fruitiness with nutmeg and curry leaf spice.
Salty seaweed, streaky bacon and vanilla with lingering oaky nutmeg spice.
Bottle Size: 700 ml
Closure: Natural cork stopper
