One of the highest quality and smokiest Islay Single Malts with a surprisingly complex profile.

Bruichladdich is one of the most impressive distilleries in Scotland. It was built on Islay in 1881 by the Harvey brothers, who came from a Whisky family dynasty. They built a cathedral-like, state-of-the-art Victorian still house, where they used 6-meter tall stills, which was unheard of at the time. Now owned by Remy Cointreau, the distillery remains pretty much the same as it has for more than 100 years. As the French culinary saying goes, "it is in the oldest pots that the best soup is made.” Slow fermentation, slow distillation, married in traditional wooden vats, and huge washes made from towering Douglas Fir.

Bruichladdich names their Octomore Single Malt releases like software. They launched the line in 2002 and have worked their way through ten versions. This, the current release, is “Octomore 10.” But this is a second release of that particular version, so the last one was “Octomore 10.0” and this one is “Octomore 10.1.” Get it? Bruichladdich Octomore 10.1 is 100% Scottish Concerto barley dried with peat to 107 PPM (phenol parts per million) — darn smokey. It’s aged for five years in new ex-Bourbon casks from Jim Beam, Heaven Hill, Buffalo Trace, and Jack Daniels. The limited edition of 42k bottles are filled without chill-filtering or colorings at 59.8% ABV. Boom!

Corner
Scotch Whisky is almost never aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation, while many times ageing process and flavor finishing is concluded in various wine casks, such as sherry or port.

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Worn Gold

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aromas are classic Octomore with wet charred wood, sea salt, and savory-chewy caramel.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The palate is always more complex that expected — building on the beach campfire with notes of toasted raisin bread, salted caramels, and smores.

Finish
The finish in long, surprisingly smooth, and smokey to the last.
