Product Description

The long 10 year old Octomore, the oldest edition of Bruichladdich's super-peaty spirit when released. That said, this is from the early days of the experiment and the barley was peated to a relatively calm 80.5ppm. We don't expect this to hang around for long...

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Notes

    • Character

      Sinewy and sublime. It’s like the sound of Islay - deep, dangerous and hypnotic - pulling you ever closer to the edge. A most exhilarating experience.

    • Colour

      Honey blonde.

    • Nose

      The aromatics rise rapidly. First to arrive, easy to detect, is smoky chocolate and raisin, followed by wild, fresh mint, which together with the oily peatiness is absolute olfactory heaven. This is the precursor to a unique compendium of flavour combinations – juniper, sage, thyme, cinnamon – together they bring you the bouquet of this island’s unique character. Fresh marine notes join the olfactory orchestra and the music is magical! After six minutes the most sumptuous combination of nutty oak and sweet malted barley join the overture. After ten minutes it’s peated marzipan, honey and lemon curd plus the lighter green fruits unique to Bruichladdich.

    • Palate

      The amazingly understated power is not picked up on the nose so the palate is completely taken by surprise. The medium-weighted, almost creamy flavours, are a combination of finesse and muscle. Sweetness and fruit remain on the front palate, while marine and peat smoke move onto the mid and back palate. The rich extracts gel together thanks to the retention of the natural oils. A most alluring mouth feel.

    • Finish

      The decade wait has been worth while. There is pride in the character and honesty of this Islay son.

    • Mood

      Wham bam, thank you ma'am.
