Distilled in 2008 using Scottish barley from the 2007 harvest. Aged for 8 Years 8.1 is made using Scottish barley and is peated to 167ppm. Matured exclusively in first fill American oak casks. Aroma: Initially smoke, peat ash hint of muddiness/wet peat moss. Taste: Liquid gold, soft and delicate texture from slow distillation. On the lips, there is a soft kiss of salt spray, ozone fresh. Sweet oak gives vanilla, fudge, marzipan and walnut. Melon and citrus come through a floral breeze. Many layered there is a lot to find in this Octomore. Finish: Dry peat smoke, iodine and oak sweetness combine. Hints of mint and bog myrtle fade with the lingering peat smoke, as ever, the last flavour to go.
