This super-heavily peated Octomore spirit, reaching 162.6PPM, was distilled in 2007. It has spent its entire maturing life in the finest Oloroso and Pedro Ximinez butts from Fernando de Castilla. Just four were hand selected and combined to create a whisky of astounding rarity and significance. Having celebrated its 12th birthday in February this year, it is the oldest Octomore released to date.
“The flavour profile is unbelievable, huge smoke, huge dried fruit notes and an earthy, rounded presence on the palate, unlike younger expressions of Octomore this is less vibrant but it has even greater depth of flavour – tobacco, coffee, tar, leather and that earthy dried smoke quality.” – Adam Hannett
