"Oh the peat etc... the peat! Etc. We've been here before."
- Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2021

Distilled from Scottish barley in 2013, Bruichladdich consider 10.1 the benchmark of the 10 series. Deliberately stripped back to an ex- American oak maturation and aged five years - which is more typical for Octomore, the intention here is to showcase the structure and presence of the spirit. It's a whisky that's first and foremost about a considered, patient distillation. Second comes the heavy peating at 107 PPM. Bottled non chill filtered at 59.8% Alc./Vol, 42,000 bottles have been released worldwide. Very limited stocks.

Other reviews... this one has a bit more vanilla on hand, as well as some sweetening oils. 95 points - Jim Murrays Whisky Bible 2021

...This one entirely from Scottish grown Concerto barley apparently. Colour: pale straw. Nose: After the terrifying phantasmagoria of the 3yo this feels almost merciful. Drying kelp, wet rocks, chalk, sandalwood, lime juice, mineral salts, brine cut with olive oil. Classical, modern, pure and rather elegant for an Octomore. Lemon peel in a rock pool almost. With water: bath bombs, citrus oils, more mineral salts, crushed sea shells, limestone, hessian cloth and gauze. Really lovely nose. Mouth: extremely salty. Pure brine, pink sea salt, green olives, capers, anchovy paste and fish sauce mixed with lime juice. Almost brutally coastal and there’s a tiny animalistic farmy note underneath as well. A very precise head-butt of coastal purity. With water: develops more towards medicine and pure antiseptic now. Lemon juice, fresh oyster, mercurochrome and olive pickling juice. Finish: long and pin-sharp. Some peat smoke, black pepper, seaweed broth and smoked mussels. Comments: When I think of Octomore, this is pretty much the flavour profile that comes to mind. It’s a style of almost militant purity, one that it has pretty much made its own and I think this bottling does it as well as any. 88 points - whiskyfun.com
