The peaty 2nd edition in the second batch of the Octaves series from Glenglassaugh. It's smoky spirit aged in a selection of tiny 65-litre octave casks, themselves made from casks that previously held bourbon, port and oloroso sherry. It's a rich and sweet dram with balanced savoury peat smoke.

This has helped to impart a wine-like sweetness to the expression, which is quite a bit different to the more bourbon-cask-matured style of the Batch 1.

Nose: Fizzy oak and red grape, with a touch of chocolate. Hints of burnt wood develop in the background.

Palate: Smoke begins to come to the fore on the palate, though the sherried sweetness keeps in from becoming outrageous.

Finish: Red chilli chocolate and flamed orange peel.
