Octomore 10.3 6 Year Old 70cl
Made using barley grown in a single field, in a single year, at Octomore farm, less than a mile from Bruichladdich, and matured entirely on Islay, and even bottled on the island, Octomore 10.3 offers a profile firmly rooted in terroir, supporting the weight of its 114ppm phenol count. Aged in ex-bourbon casks for six years.
Nose: Earthy peat smoke, lemon drops, thyme, sea salt, vanilla and fudge, with a sharp, medicinal edge.
Palate: Salt, honey and lemon, developing pear, gooseberry and oak atop a backdrop of heavy peat smoke.
Finish: Drying, lingering and moreish sweet barbecue ash and coastal salt
