Bruichladdich Octomore 10.2 Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
Volume: 700ml ABV: 56.9% Age: 8 Years Old Country: Scotland PPM:96.9
Built in 1881 when puffer-supplied coal was available as an alternative fuel to local peat, it is likely that Bruichladdich was specifically designed to produce the purest unpeated spirit possible. The great Alfred Barnard supports this view with a tantalising clue – the Laddie is the only distillery on Islay that he does not describe as drying its malt using peat in his fascinating exploration of the island’s distilleries in 1885. Sadly, none of that 19th century spirit survives, but the original Victorian machinery has allowed an unparalleled legacy of craft distilling to trickle down through the generations of men who make this sophisticated Islay dram. It was in 1994 that the Bruichladdich distillery closed for a significant period of time. No one knew if this modern distillery would reopen its doors and see spirits start to flow through the stills again. A period in the whisky industry that will not be forgotten for years to come.
Produced with Scottish Optic and Oxbridge barley, the Octomore 10.2 has been aged for 8 years, the first 4 years in 1st fill Bourbon barrels and a further 4 years in 3rd fill Sauternes wine casks. Bottled at 56.9% ABV with a Peat PPM of 96.9.
