Bruichladdich Octomore 12.1 – Limited


This is the Octomore 12.1 from Bruichladdich, distilled on the isle of Islay and boasting a characteristically peaty profile. Produced with 100% Scottish barley, it has been peated to 130.8PPM and matured for five years in first-fill American whiskey casks before being bottled up at a hefty 59.3% ABV. These expressions offer up oodles of peat, yet still manage to have a somewhat delicate and deliberate flavour profile – a tough balance to hit, but Bruichladdich’s team are masters of doing so.
