Bruichladdich Octomore Edition 10.3 Islay Barley
For the first time, the .3 is matured for six aged years but crucially only in ex-American oak. These top-quality casks have gently coaxed this Octomore spirit into life in Warehouse 16, next to our 10.1 edition. The components of our 10.1 and 10.3 are so similar, the distinct flavour difference must be owed to the barley’s respective growing location.

A very lively expression of smokey peat and Islay provenance. I'll spare the details for the sake of length, but in short, this is a bold and dynamic dram. Heavy notes teeter back and forth for dominance on the nose. The palate is earthy, with a sweet and sour peat, salted mint chocolate, barley sugar, and the malty character of the distillate shines through the smoke. Very surprisingly tame and rounded considering the age and abv. High quality cask selection and expertly crafted spirit is evident. Very well done, hats off to Bruichladdich.
