Octomore 12.1 5 Year Old

No reviews

In the .1 edition, nowhere is the duality of the  Octomore ultra highly peated series more relevant. This is pure hefty smoke, never as you would think, delicate but potent, combined with the energetic and dynamic, fruity and flowery distillate. While Octomore itself defies convention, the Head Distiller Adam Hannett prefers to let Octomore.1 versions age for five vigorous years only in ex-American whiskey casks. Although Octomore 12.1 serves as the required control for the remaining experiments in the series, their baseline shouldn't be undervalued. Scottish barley from the mainland is distilled in a careful trickle. A sensory interaction that emphasises the cereal-rich, malty aromas of this barley-forward single malt is made possible by the maturation profile's minimalism.

Tasting Note by Bruichladdich
Nose: Opens on zesty citrus freshness and earthy peat smoke. Vanilla sponge cake and barley sugars with rich malt sweetness. Coconut and chocolate, vanilla and caramel follow and as the aromas open further cinder toffee and layers of Peat smoke and honey come to the fore.
Palate: Peppery and sweet on the palate, with a texture of warm golden syrup. Honey and peat smoke then fired oak chips and peaty apricot jam open. Another sip brings malted barley sugars and straw, heather flower and a nutty nougat sweetness. A mineral sandy note sits on the palate and brings through a dry phenolic earthy smoke and hints of orange zest and pear drops.
Finish: The finish brings salted caramel with floral and herbal notes. Honeysuckle, primrose and then gentle peat smoke, as ever, the note that drifts on the longest.
