Octomore 8.3 Scotch Whiskey 750ml

Inception and incitement is trailed by challenge. Developing grain on Islay is constantly troublesome and yields are low. The fall of 2010 was wet and blustery. A late reap saw Octomore agriculturist James Brown confronting overwhelming misfortunes from greylag geese and groups of wild red deer, bringing about a valuable little yield. Malting the this Octomore grain delivered results that were remarkable, the readings returned at 309.1ppm. Following a carefully controlled stream distillation, Octomore 08.3 was developed in 56% first fill Bourbon casks, the remaining in ex-Paulliac, Ventoux, Rhone and Burgundy barrels.

Octomore 8.3 Scotch Whiskey Tasting Notes

CHARACTER | This is a ultimate Islay Octomore. A thunderstorm of a dram. Close your eyes as you take the first taste and enable your senses to close down as you center around preparing this interesting dram.

AROMA | Toasted oak and sloppy/peaty smoke, swathes. Maple syrup, fresh linen, sea shells. Brings out a memory of lying in the heather on the peat moss, the warm sun urging the aroma from the wild blossoms. The natural product is cherry, peach and mango, with creme brulee and toffee from the oak and barley.

TASTE | Initially an amazement as the stellar level of peat is intense and over-whelming. Another taste opens with up with cherry and peach and toasted sweet oak, dull chocolate, boot clean and kelp. At this level the peat resembles a thundercloud, obscuring the environment. You can feel it in your bones.

FINISH | Complex, creme brulee with caramelized darker sugar somewhat exaggerated. Dim plum, orange and kiwi sit well with the malted grain sweetness. The peat smoke is a huge nearness offering cooked coffee, burnt heather and a place in your memory forever.

COLOR | Golden Syrup
