All the power and smoke of Octomore in a more mature and refined Single Malt experience.

The Bruichladdich Distillery is very impressive. In 1881 the Harvey brothers — who came from a Whisky family dynasty — built a cathedral-like, state-of-the-art Victorian still house with unheard-of six-meter tall stills. After being closed for a short period between 1994-2001, the distillery was brought back to life using pretty much the same 100 year old equipment by two London Wine merchants, who believed that terroir matters. They proudly practice slow fermentation and slow distillation using traditional wooden vats and huge washes made from towering Douglas Fir. The distillery produces non-peated Bruichladdich Single Malt, Port Charlotte which is peated in the classic Islay style, the heavily peated Octomore, and The Botanist Islay Dry Gin.

Most of the Octomore releases are five year-old drams. But they kick out a few older versions now and then and these are consistently some of our favorites. This year, the Bruichladdich Octomore Ten Years is peated up to an impressive 208 phenol ppm and bottled at a toasty 54.3% ABV. So, while this might be the more mature, more sophisticated member of the Octomore family, with stats like that, there is a brawler in the bottle. And true to form, Octomore Ten Years is strictly limited to just 12,000 bottles so you should get one while you can.

Smartass Corner:
Bruichladdich is darned hard to say correctly. The trouble is that the "-ich" in Scots Gaelic is sometimes pronounced as a hard "k" and sometimes it’s silent. And in "Bruichladdich" there’s one of each. Say it this way: "brook - laddie" and you’ll be close.

Appearance / Color
Harvest Gold

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma leads with the campfire ash you expect before opening up to sweet florals and butterscotch underneath.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The smokiness is balanced against rich toffee notes with stone fruits and a bit of honey.

Finish
The finish is long like a sweet cigar drag with a butterscotch note under smoke.
