Description

Adam Hannett, the Head Distiller, has expertly selected casks that previously housed Oloroso and Amarone from Spain and Italy's esteemed wine regions for the Octomore 14.2. This unique combination lends a distinct sweetness and nuttiness, resulting in an exceptional single malt. The whisky is then aged in French oak, adding substantial depth and complexity. Octomore's iconic peak smoke harmonises well with the Oloroso sherry casks, infusing a robust, savoury flavour. Additionally, the Amarone casks contribute significantly, imparting rich red fruit notes, which provide structure and coherence to the 14.2 blend.

Tasting Note by Bruichladdich:
Nose: Leather, prunes, red currants and malted barley come to the fore, followed by toasted oak and hints of cinnamon, green apple and black pepper. Waves of smoke and distinct red fruits follow, complemented with cereal notes of malt and porridge. The peat smoke is dry and brooding, with a hint of burnt heather and subtle pipe tobacco from the oak.
Palate: The influence of the European oak is unmissable, with a touch of dryness balanced with the vibrancy of wood spices, smoked oak and roasted coffee. Barbeque sweetness and a crack of black pepper is complemented with rich fruit cake and dried fruits. A drop of water opens the smoke and fruity sweetness from the wine casks, bringing a beautiful balance as notes of apple and pear grow with the dram.
Finish: Smoked malt, smouldering oak and sea salt settle on the finish as Octomore’s signature earthy smoke lingers.
