A 6 year old single malt Scotch whisky from Bruichladdich's esteemed Octomore range - for this expression from the Octomore 10 series, the barley used was from a single field on a single Islay farm! It was aged fully in American oak casks and bottled after half a dozen years at 61.3% ABV. The Octomore 10 series explores 'softer smoke', and as such, was peated just to 114PPM.
Nose: Coastal peat and a touch of TCP, balanced by milky coffee and honeycomb.
Palate: Bright notes of citrus and green apple as it opens, before more maritime notes develop, along with a whiff of burnt sugar.
Finish: A long finish with plenty of peat to linger over.
