Bruichladdich Octomore Scottish Barley 10.1 Single Malt Whisky 70cl 59.8% ABV
A 6 year old single malt Scotch whisky from Bruichladdich's esteemed Octomore range - for this expression from the Octomore 10 series, the barley used was from a single field on a single Islay farm! It was aged fully in American oak casks and bottled after half a dozen years at 61.3% ABV. The Octomore 10 series explores 'softer smoke', and as such, was peated just to 114PPM.
Coastal peat and a touch of TCP, balanced by milky coffee and honeycomb on the nose. The palate shows bright notes of citrus and green apple as it opens, before more maritime notes develop, along with a whiff of burnt sugar.
