|OVERVIEW||Made from barley grown in a single field on Islay, Octomore 8.3 is one of Bruichladdich's 'super heavily peated' whiskies. So heavily peated, in fact, that this edition produced a reading of 309.1PPM (Phenol Parts per Million), the highest ever recorded at malting. The resulting five-year-old whisky is, unsurprisingly, an intensely peaty dram which develops flavours of dark chocolate, cherry and peach.|
Rock pools, fresh cinnamon, a touch of iced bun, burnt heather.
Brown sugar and peach arrive first on the palate surprisingly, but these notes are swiftly followed by layers of dense smoke and sea air.
Toasted brioche dipped in espresso, earthy vanilla, tobacco.
