Bruichladdich Octomore 8.1 Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
Volume: 700ml ABV: 59.3% Age: 8 Years Old Country: Scotland PPM:167
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.
Led by the structural brilliance of 08.1, we can pause at this symbolic moment to enjoy a single malt masterclass. The experimental ethos, the muscular quality, is still very much to the fore, but there is enlightenment now, a sure-footed confidence. 08.1 is the necessary benchmark, the launch pad from which others can only follow. 08.1 reveals the astonishing subtlety of Bruichladdich’s phenolic universe, leading everyone along a pathway into a world like no other.
Official Tasting Notes
Character: Refined, confident, a little extra age has tempered some of the vitality but this dram has gained a classic, timeless feel.
Colour: Winter sun, crisp and bright
Nose: Initially smoke, tar, peat ash hint of muddiness/wet peat moss. Candied orange, pepper, chocolate, macaroon, vanilla fudge and lemon meringue pie.
Palate: Liquid gold, soft and delicate texture from slow distillation. Superb fruit/smoke combination. On the lips there is soft kiss of salt spray, ozone fresh. Sweet oak gives vanilla, fudge, marzipan and walnut. Melon and citrus come through on a floral breeze. Many layered there is a lot find in this Octomore.
Finish: 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 brûlée.
