Octomore 11.3 Islay Barley Description
This young and peaty dram packs a punch! Octomore 11.3 Islay Barley is a five-year-old single malt from the eleventh series of Octomore – Bruichladdich's super-heavily peated expression. This release was made with barley grown on the Octomore farm on Islay and matured in ex-American whiskey casks from Jim Beam, Jack Daniels, Heaven Hill and Buffalo Trace for five years, before being bottled at an eye-watering strength of 61.7% abv.
Nose: salty sea air, influenced by the barley grown next to the Atlantic ocean.
Palate: orange blossom, apricots, caramel and smoke throughout the flavours.
Finish: more smoke, with a honeyed heather in the aftertaste.
