Octomore 14.3 Edition 5 Year Old 70cl
The 14th series of Octomore releases are now available. This super-heavy peat level sees the PPM ramped up to a whopping 214.2, amongst the heaviest ever peated releases from the range.
What does this mean for the whisky flavour? Head Distiller, Adam Hannett, has expertly coaxed the flavour from the Islay barley in this high-provenance single malt. Matured in a combination of first-fill ex-American whiskey casks and second-fill wine casks, the oak influences but never dominates the grain - capturing the terroir and unique flavour of the Islay barley.
Limited Edition | Natural Colour | Natural Cask Strength | Non Chill Filtered | Peated
Nose: Hot, sweet mash are unmistakable on the nose, with the soft, biscuit notes of the malted barley complementing the earthy peat smoke.
Palate: Smouldering peat lingers, creamy porridge and cereal notes of the Islay barley are balanced with butterscotch, honeycomb and a hint of vanilla.
Finish: Mint and sea salt linger with dried fruits and black tea wood notes.
