Bruichladdich Octomore 07.4 Virgin Oak

Bruichladdich was built in 1881 by the Harvey brothers, who owned the Dundashill and Yoker grain distilleries in Glasgow.
Unlike their neighbouring distilleries from the island of Islay, the Bruichladdich range is made without peat. Without the influence of smoke, they expose the brilliance of our raw ingredient – barley. Stepping further outside of whisky tradition, they have traced ingredients from origin to bottling, embracing every growing season, the subtlety of changing barley varietals and the methods applied in growing them.

Octomore is the super-heavily peated single malt produced by Bruichladdich distillery, the most routinely heavily peated in the world. The whisky is named after the farm of the same name, located on a hillside north of the town of Port Charlotte. Having been traditionally an un-peated single malt due to the needs of its former owners for their blends, Murray McDavid were quick to diversify the Bruichladdich portfolio, also introducing the more lightly peated Port Charlotte and Lochindaal.

The Bruichladdich Octomore 07.4 is the first virgin oak matured release from Octomore. It has been distilled and left to age for seven years in new oak casks. It has complex flavours of sweetness, peat smoke and rich spice.

    Nose:    Balanced. Sweet bourbon notes of toasted oak, cherry, dark honey, and sweet peat.

    Taste:    Balanced again. The peat and toasted oak notes are in harmony. Very flavourful and rich.

    Finish:    Long spicy-sweet finish underscored by sweet peat.


Please note: The Octomore range outer tins are extremely prone to dings and scratches. The tins often arrive into our warehouse suffering from minor damage in transit. This is out of our control. When we dispatch to our customers, we will re-pack to avoid further damage in transit but collectors should have reasonable expectations in this regard.
