Octomore Masterclass_08.3 Bottling Note

Bruichladdich's Octomore expressions are know for being incredibly well-peated - but this one takes the proverbial biscuit and throws it out a window. The Octomore Masterclass_08.3 weighs in at a massive 309 PPM, making this the most heavily-peated Octomore to date! It was aged for 5 years in 56% first-fill bourbon casks, while the rest was filled into ex-Paulliac, Ventoux, Rhone and Burgundy casks.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Rock pools, fresh cinnamon, a touch of iced bun, burnt heather.

Palate: Brown sugar and peach arrive first on the palate surprisingly, but these notes are swiftly followed by layers of dense smoke and sea air.

Finish: Toasted brioche dipped in espresso, earthy vanilla, tobacco.

£165 for a 5 y/o

Yay - £165 for a 5 y/o whisky. Mind you, its 309 ppm so must be worth it.

Makes you wonder why no other distiller bothers?
