Originally malted to 90.3PPM, this Octomore spirit spent its first five years maturing in first fill ex-American oak casks. For its final five years, it would be re-casked into wine barriques, hailing from a bodega in northern Spain. This Ribera del Duero wine is known for its intense flavour and complexity, owing to its altitude (~900m), exposure to wind and organic production methods. The resulting Octomore single malt is viscous, sweet and structured, with a touch of dryness from the tannic European oak. Limited to 3,500 bottles, this particular Octomore is available exclusively from our website, and the Laddie Shop on Islay.

“At that age, with the quality of those casks, this Octomore is absolutely singing.”

tasting notes


CHARACTER – The maturation in American then French Oak from Ribera del Duero has shaped and tempered the smouldering peat smoke. The depth of this combination of oak, smoke and time makes this dram a unique expression of Octomore.

NOSE – Initial notes are of Seville oranges and roasted hazelnuts, gentle peat smoke wisps around toasted oak. Lemon and pear drops, bring a touch of tart to the sweetness. There is a nutty, malty base note and as this wonderful dram opens further, vanilla from bourbon-soaked oak rises and takes on the dominance of the earthy peat smoke.

TASTE – The texture is muscular and lean, there is a warming heat, but it is held well by the depth of the oak and the brooding smoke. Golden syrup, lemon drizzle, heather honey and black cherries give some succulence alongside the toasted French oak spices and tannins. Roasted coffee and caramelised salted caramel bring a lovely sweet and savoury edge. There is always a fruity cherry and blackcurrant top note runs through the dram counteracting the oak and smoke dominance.

FINISH – Becomes a touch dark on the finish with deep smoky notes of boot polish and charred heather, the oak with its rich toasted nutty character marries wonderfully and adds a depth that needs to be explored.

COLOUR – Blood orange.
