Nose: Thyme honey, bonfires on beaches, vanilla blossom.
Palate: Soft vanilla and apricot arrive first, with the smoke slowly building, becoming savoury the longer it goes on.
Finish: Heather, salted caramel and lemon.
It’s Bruichladdich’s Octomore 11.3 expression right here, folks! This particular edition was made with barley grown on Islay by James Brown at the Octomore Farm, which is exposed to the coastal breeze of the Atlantic Ocean. After distillation, it was allowed to matured for five years in first-fill American whiskey casks, including ones from Jim Beam, Heaven Hill, Buffalo Track and Jack Daniel’s. As ever for the Octomore series, this is a heavily peated stuff, weighing in at a hefty 194 PPM.
