BRUICHLADDICH OCTOMORE 10 YR OLD ISLAY SINGLE MALT 700ML

 

This is the second 10 year old release of Octomore and one of the oldest bottled to date. Peated to 167ppm and matured in an equal proportion of ex-bourbon and ex-grenache blanc wine casks before being bottled at 57.3% ABV., production was capped at 18,000 bottles. Extremely limited allocation.

 

Other reviews... The nose reminds me of a peated brandy at first with lots of red grapes, dried flowers, honeysuckle, peach nectar, and a subtle smokiness that’s just a hint of things to come. The taste starts off dry at first, then explodes with flavor starting with citrus notes of lemon zest and mango followed by smoke that rolls in like the fog on Islay. It’s thick without overpowering lighter notes of honeysuckle, oak, and vanilla that create a complex palate that’s constantly changing, and a few drops of water will accentuate the citrus notes. The finish…it just lasts and lasts. This may well be the best Octomore yet! (November, 2016)
