Why You'll Love It?
Bruichladdich are reknowned for their experimental and exciting style. This is the last Octomore created under the influence of Master Distiller, Jim McKewan. If you love a big bold peaty Whisky, keep reading. At 208ppm, the 7.1 edition has the highest level of peat but certainly remains one of the smokiest tasting. Using barley sourced from Scotland, it was aged for five years in American oak and bottled all natural, at a cask strength of 59.5% Alc./Vol.
Jim McKewan describes the nose as: “Like sea spray and caramel, lemon balm and pipe tobacco. Slowly, the peat rises from the glass, gentle but strong, lifting vanilla, mint, toffee, golden syrup and almond.” On the palate, he finds: “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 that have been delicately coaxed from the still during an exceptionally slow distillation.” He adds, "This dram will transport you to Islay, to watch the sun setting over the sea while breathing in the peat smoke hanging in the air."
