5 Year Old American Oak
- Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
- Distillery Bottling
As is traditional, October 9.1 sets the tone for the 9 series. This intensely peaty single malt is designed to demonstrate that ingredients and distillation methods can create young whisky which is superior to those prized simply for their age. Matured in ex-American whiskey casks for five years, this is elegant, smoky and sweet with notes of toffee, earthy peat, fudge, coconut and rose petal.
The Octomore 9 series has been named dialogos (dialogue in ancient Greek) in recognition of the whisky's ability to provoke debate amongst whisky enthusiasts.

Octomore 9.1 takes the Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky to a new level of incredible complexity. The entire experience from nose to taste to finish is extraordinary.
Well they were not kidding about the smoke. I have been dying to try this and was not disappointed.
