Octomore 12.2 5 Year Old

Octomore 12.2 5 Year Old Bottling Note

This right here is the Octomore 12.5 release from Islay's Bruichladdich, which was aged for five years. As with the rest of the range, you're in for a peaty treat here, though there's a bit of a balancing act going to with this particular expression. It was initially aged in first and second-fill American whiskey casks but then finished in first-fill Sauternes wine casks! The intense peat (this one sits at a robust 129.7PPM) and the bold sweetness of the wine casks makes for a fascinating juxtaposition.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Honeydew melon and orange peel, honey roasted nuts, earthy, oaky smoke with a lingering touch of petrichor.

Palate: Still packed with smoke, though it's mellowed by fresh peach, pear drops, and golden syrup.

Finish: Hickory, lemon peel, and brown sugar.
