New Super-Heavily Peated Octomore from the Bruichladdich Distillery
This new release from the Bruichladdich distillery is the latest member of their super-heavily peated Octomore range. 52 tonnes of Islay barley were malted to make this single farm limited whisky. The incredibly high PPM levels mean you should expect a lot, and we mean a lot, of peaty notes in this dram, but that isn’t all that’s on offer. Matured in predominantly second-fill casks, the whisky also exhibits delicate woody notes and hints of citrus that help to cut through the large doses of peat. It’s a surprisingly intricate and complex whisky that every fan of smoky whisky will revel in.
