Tasting Note

Nose
Initial notes of Lemon, wet peat, pencil shavings, and a salty minerality. Peach yoghurt, cinder toffee, rubbery smokey almost antiseptic notes come from the peat smoke, well balanced with the green fruit and malty notes coming through the spirit. Honey, malt sugar, dried grass, come through with time with a little hint of ginger and wood spice.

Palate
Brown sugar sweetness hits the palate initially. The chilli heat of high strength carries the Octomore DNA across the palate, it is clean, supple in texture and has a complex combination of flavours rushing for attention. Another taste and stone fruit, apricot, that peach yoghurt come to the fore and then the cask influence appears with sweet vanilla, toasted oak, brown sugar and soft toffee. The maritime notes, the minerality and citrus all weave the Bruichladdich DNA through the flavour profile bonding the sense of place and identity in this dram.

Finish
Malt, huge Peat notes, earthy and oily, tar and bonfires. Vanilla honey, ginger spice and syrupy sweetness.

Octomore Scottish Barley 11.1

RM869

A heavily-peated Islay single malt from Bruichladdich distillery, Octomore 11.1 has been matured in American oak casks from Jim Beam, Jack Daniels and Heaven Hill for five years after it was distilled in 2014. Aromas of lemon, damp peat, pencil shavings, peach yoghurt, toffee and heather honey fill the nose. The palate offers notes of brown sugar, peaches, apricot, vanilla, toasted oak and medicinal waves of peat smoke and salty driftwood that linger in the finish.

Size: 700ml
