Bruichladdich Octomore 7.1 Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
Volume: 700ml ABV: 59.5% Age: 5 Years Old Country: Scotland PPM:208
Each new Octomore generates a huge amount of anticipation and excitement. Connoisseurs of single malts from around the world have created a cult following for the wolds’s most heavily peated whisky series. Each release is a powerful illustration of the art of the Master Distiller. Each is necessarily unique, limited, finite, a celebration of nuance. It can never be reproduced. For Octomore 07.1 barley harvested from mainland Scotland was peated to 208ppm. Matured five years in American Oak and bottled at 59.5%. Octomore stands alone.
Official Tasting Notes
Character: Sweet and gentle belying an awesome power and hidden depths
Colour: Summer sun on Hebridean sand
Nose: Initially the nose is sea spray and caramel, lemon balm and pipe tobacco. Slowly, the peat smoke rises from the glass, gentle but strong lifting vanilla, mint, toffee, golden syrup and almond. Peach follows with pear syrup and buttercup. A symphony, a delight to experience.
Palate: Wow! Smoothness, sweetness and then smoke. A texture like no other, satin soft and devilishly warming. The American Oak influence is in perfect tune with the smoke and soft fruits delicately skilfully coaxed from the still during exceptionally slow distillation. Vanilla, honey, citrus rise up to be met with sea spray and leather, smoked mussels mix with autumn bracken and crème brulee.
Finish: As the sweetness from the oak fades the salt comes to the fore one last time while the gentle peat smoke steady and true grows and outlasts all else.
Mood: The feeling is that of long summer nights turning cooler and shorter as autumn approaches. Watch the sun set over the sea and breathe the peat smoke hanging in the air.
