Octomore 12.2 follows in the footsteps of previous Sauternes legends, confirming that heavy peat smoke combined with the sweet dessert wine of the French region is an incredible pairing.
A SUPERCHARGED INFLUENCE
Octomore 12.2 follows in the footsteps of the now infamous Octomore 4.2 (Comus), which became one of the most acclaimed and sought- after whiskies in our distillery’s portfolio.
Making a statement in its surprising pairing and balance of sweet and smoky, this Octomore 12.2 spent three and a half years in ex-American oak casks, building a solid foundation of fruity and floral spirit in our lochside warehouses before being recasked in to impeccable quality Sauternes casks.
The pivotal role of the Sauternes casks add 18 months of supercharged fruit.
Melon, white peach, honeysuckle and coconut add a real twist and sweetness to compliment the peat smoke of this heavily phenolic malt.
