Octomore Masterclass 08.2 Bottling Note

An Octomore single malt from Bruichladdich which was originally released for the Travel Retail market. This heavily peated expression was aged for 8 years, though it wasn't just a simple one cask style maturation - the first 6 years were in one of three types of wine cask (French Mourvedre, Austrian sweet wine or French Sauternes).

Please Note: This bottle comes without the presentation tube.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Fennel, smoky black tea, redcurrants dusted with ground ginger and cinnamon, a touch of floral barley.

Palate: Red fruit notes still dominate, but the classic peat heat build and builds on the palate.

Finish: Oily walnut, strawberry, bonfire embers.

Smoky fruit delicious dram

Having drunk through Octamore 7.3 in double quick time, originally expecting it to be a slow sipper, special occasion whisky, I picked up a bottle of the 8.2 just last week to replace it. This 8.2 surpasses the 7.3, this Octamore drinking could be getting to be a dangerously expensive habit/obsession.

I'm no red wine drinker, but the fruit on the palate goes beautifully with the peat, creating a perfect balance. Knowing that the original bottle won't last long, I have already within the week bought a spare 8.2 to sit alongside the original. With the 8.2 being this good I might have to check out the 9.2 when I next fly.
