Bruichladdich Octomore 08.3 Masterclass 5 Year Old

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.
This limited edition Octomore 08.3 spent its maturing life in 56% ex-bourbon, and 44 % wine casks (Paulliac, Ventoux, Rhone, Burgundy).
This is the most peated release from Octomore at 309PPM.

    Nose:    Explosive with earthy peat and a little bit of lemon.

    Taste:    Very very very peaty and woody. A hint of iodine too. Pepperiness (ginger, chilli spice) is evident.

    Finish:   Long lasting. The peat is still present with still a little lemony taste. Warming, bacon and smoke.


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.
