Bruichladdich Octomore 8.2 700ml
Initiation brings provocation. All of the opulent spirit in Octomore 08.2 spent the first six years of its life in one of three different styles of wine cask.
French Mourvedre – a red wine grape that has a reputation for producing intense red fruit, and strong, earthy, even gamey flavours.
Austrian sweet wines – full bodied and charming with an ability to challenge convention with innovative techniques.
French Sauternes – casks from the Graves section in Bordeaux that previously held some of the most revered and exclusive dessert wines the world has ever seen.
/ 167 PPM / 8 AGED YEARS
CHARACTER – Exotic, rich and fruity. Layered and complex, this is all about the cask story.
AROMA – Peat smoke comes first but not dominant, there is red fruit, aniseed and barley sugar/boiled sweets. Smoke weaves between the other notes as they come, stewed apple, raspberry, blackcurrant, dried apricots and chocolate. Orange, mince pies and Turkish delight hint at the cask history then cherry wafers and coconut open out to floral notes of hay, geranium and Parma violets.
TASTE – Warming and sweet, deep fruit and satin-like smoke. The oak feels a little dry then lifts to become toasted bread, bubble-gum sweetness and strawberry Jam. Adding a drop or two of water opens up the Islay DNA of salt spray, ozone and citrus. As it opens you find rose petal, Turkish delight, praline and more strawberry jam, all the while the smoke is in the background holding everything together.
FINISH – Typical Octomore. Smoke comes through, a dry peat smoke, with malted barley and cherry, then goes out on its own..
COLOUR – Ruby red.
