OCTOMORE 7.3 ISLAY BARLEY 63%
It was distilled in 2010 from grain harvested on Lorgba field the previous summer, peated to 169ppm and matured here on Islay for all its life in American bourbon barrels and Spanish wine casks of Ribera del Duero.
Uber provenance, uber experimental, Octomore of Octomore embodies the quintessence of their philosophy.
Nose: Opens with the unmistakeable hit of peat smoke followed by ozone and salt spray, then lemon cake. The marine notes characteristic of maturation by the shores of Lochindaal. Warm the glass in your hand and wait as apricot jam, cinder toffee, vanilla, buttercups and lilies rise and interweave.
Palate: The texture is a striking testament to the Distiller’s art, rich and satin smooth despite the high strength. Initially there is salt on the lips with sweetness from the American Oak combining with the peat smoke. A second sip uncovers the heart of the dram through layers of peaches, apricot, melon and ginger syrup. Once there, malted Islay barley and toasted oak compliment floral notes of wild thyme, mint and buttercup.
