Octomore 10.1

Single Malt Whisky

Ecosse - Islay

          

          

Octomore takes its name from a small farm strewn on the hill overlooking the village of Port Charlotte on the Isle of Islay, not far from the Bruichladdich Distillery. This farm-distillery closed in 1852 after only four decades of activity. In 2002, the master distiller of Bruichladdich, Jim McEwan, wanted to create the most peaty whiskey in the world with Octomore, to complete the range made up of unpeated Bruichalddich whiskeys and very peaty whiskeys from Port-Charlotte.

Beyond its unusual phenolic concentration, Octomore whiskey is characterized by an innovative approach in the assembly and aging of these spirits.

Distilled in 2013 from 100% Scottish concerto barley and harvested in 2012, Octomore 10.1 is the benchmark of the new 10 Ochdamh-mòr series presented in 2019.

Octomore has deliberately chosen to achieve, for this edition, a maturation on the island of Islay and only in American Bourbon casks of 1st filling from Jim Beam, Sky Hill, Buffalo Trace and Jack Daniel's.

This Single Malt is 5 years old and offers all the structure and presence of the Octomore spirit.

The whole thus combines smoke with a modest maturation to present all the true potential of a distillation carried out with patience for a muscular and fat spirit.

This new limited edition has 42,000 bottles.

With 107 ppm *, this new Octomore 10.1 has a powerful peaty character. It is unfiltered and has its natural color.

* ppm (parts per million) of phenolic compounds, measures the impact of oily smoke from peat that settles on germinated barley as it dries. The longer this time, the greater the value of ppm.
In Scotland, in the Speyside region, the average level of phenols varies between 2 and 3 ppm. On the island of Islay, this rate can reach 80 ppm or even 107 ppm as in this Octomore 10.1.
