Bruichladdich - Octomore Scottish Barley

Bruichladdich - Octomore Scottish Barley
THE WORLD'S MOST HEAVILY PEATED WHISKY, THIS IS THE SIXTH EDITION OF THE UBER-EXPERIMENTAL CULT OCTOMORE.



Titanic amounts of peat but with a light, delicate complexity and a beguiling finesse. Young, yet eminently mature, it defies us. It remains an enigma. We embrace that.

Here, we pay tribute to its pedigree, to the land from which it came and the raw materials that gave it life: Octomore Scottish Barley.

We believe challenging convention matters.

CHARACTER
Magnificently muscular. Most heavily peated malts are so dry and phenolic there is little else to spark the senses, not so this young warrior who arouses pride and passion, transporting you to that most famous rock in the Atlantic ocean – Islay – the beating heart of the Hebrides.

COLOUR
AUTUMN SUNSHINE/ CITRINE

NOSE
THE FIRST WAVES BRING A COMBINATION OF SEA
SPRAY, SPINDRIFT, WET SEA WEED AND HINTS OF OILY IODINE. THEN PEAT SMOKE WITH CRACKED BLACK PEPPERCORN AND AS THE SPIRIT REVEALS ITSELF, STUNNING NOTES OF HEATHER FLOWERS, LEMON BALM AND WATER MINT. ITS LIKE WATCHING A SPIRITUAL WEAVER CREATE
A TAPESTRY FROM THE HEBRIDES ITSELF.

PALATE
As the spirit breathes in the glass a subtle change takes place. Rising steadily comes the crisp, malted barley then the sweet oak, giving notes of vanilla, toasted rye bread and walnuts. Add a burst of fresh lime, poached apple and pear from distillation whilst always in the background the steady rhythm of the sea painting pictures in your mind of a people and place who know that single malt is the stuff of life, sustaining them for generations.

FINISH
The senses will celebrate this genial, warm, thrilling experience long after the glass is empty. You will know that you have been on a journey by the warmth in your heart and the spirit in your soul.
