Bruichladdich Octomore 08.3 Masterclass Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)

Islay, SCOTLAND
$399.00 Bottle
  • ABV 61.2%

Here it is - the bomb of all peated whiskies - the most heavily-peated Octomore to date (309ppm). Distilled in 2011 from the 2010 harvest. One farm, one field, one vintage. Aged for 5 years, with the maturation being 56% full-term ex-Bourbon and 44% full-term European oak. It forms part of Head Distiller, Adam Hannett's unique Masterclass of four expressions called ‘Octomore Eights’. The concept is to allow enthusiasts to compare and discover ‘What makes an Octomore what it is’. On allocation so super limited.

Other reviews... One of four Octomore 08 Masterclass releases, this was distilled in 2011 from Islay barley peated to 309 ppm. Fifty-six percent of the spirit was matured in first-fill bourbon casks, while the remainder was aged in European oak wine casks. Barbecue smokiness on the nose, with wet peat and citrus fruitiness. On the palate, earthy peat, full-bodied red wine, and milk chocolate. Peat smoke to the fore in the finish, with ginger and chili. (18,000 bottles)
