70cl / 59.1% / Distillery Bottling - As is traditional, October 9.1 sets the tone for the 9 series. This intensely peaty single malt is designed to demonstrate that ingredients and distillation methods can create young whisky which is superior to those prized simply for their age. Matured in ex-American whiskey casks for five years, this is elegant, smoky and sweet with notes of toffee, earthy peat, fudge, coconut and rose petal.
70cl / 63.5% / Distillery Bottling - At only three-years-old 10.4 is the youngest whisky in the Octomore series and was distilled in 2015 from the 2015 harvest. Peated to 88ppm and matured in 28 heavily-toasted virgin Limousin oak casks create a layer of dry fruit and vanilla on the palate, alongside oak spice and rich smoke.
70cl / 57.3% / Distillery Bottling - Octomore has had a second release of its 10-year-old whisky. Heavily peated to 167ppm this has been aged in a combination of bourbon barrels and Grenache-wine casks. Richly smoky, but balanced, this has notes of salted caramel, marzipan, vanilla and malted bread.
70cl / 62.9% / Distillery Bottling - Made solely from barley grown on Irene's Farm in Islay (peated to 133 PPM) and aged for five years in mostly second-fill American whiskey barrels, this is a fascinating study of how a single-vintage low-yield harvest affects the whisky character. This has intense notes of malted barley, black tea, golden syrup, burning heather and smoke.
70cl / 63% / Distillery Bottling - 7.3 is the second edition of 'Octomore from Octomore, made using barley grown on the eponymous farm. Distilled in 2010 and peated to 169ppm, this was aged in a combination of bourbon barrels and red wine casks from Ribera del Duero in Spain. Big and bold, yet also elegant with notes of oranges, honey, cinnamon and clove.
