- Bruichladdich Octomore 3.1
Limited edition 2010 release of the most heavily peated malt whiskey in the World - now certified 152ppm. Matured in American oak barrels.
The senses are totally ambushed, the palate receptors going crazy with the olfactory system for not releasing an early storm warning. Both are sucked into a vortex of peat smoke and fire, iodine, wet seaweed, tarry pitch and soaking sailcloth. Now the senses are ready and they pick up the mellow oakiness from the bourbon sweet casks coming through like chicory and bitter chocolate which brings balance and a subtle smoothness.
