We weren't expecting this before Christmas, but here it is! Produced from concerto Scottish barley, and distilled in 2013, at a phenolic level of 107PPM, the whisky was matured 5 years in ex-American oak casks. 59.8%.
Producer Description: "Distilled from Scottish barley in 2013, Octomore 10.1 is the benchmark of the 10s series. Deliberately stripped back to an ex- American oak maturation, aged just 5 years old, the .1 edition exposes the structure and presence of the Octomore spirit. Combining smoke with a modest maturation, this 10.1 first and foremost demonstrates the true potential of a considered, patient distillation."
Producer Tasting Note
Character: Lithe, supple, powerfully confident and a dram more than the sum of its parts. Slow trickle distillation is the hallmark of this muscular, oily spirit.
Aroma: Vanilla led, caramel, hints of smoke but tamed back. candied apple, gooseberry and marzipan.
Taste: Soft yet powerful and warming on the palate, peppery, barley sugar, smokey – dried earth and hints of rubber. Warm sand, sweetness of charred oak and pineapple.
Finish: Sweetness from tablet/fudge and a strong peat smoke and cold marine air combination.
