Octomore 7.4 Virgin Oak Description
A radical expression from the Bruichladdich brand, Octomore 7.4 is distilled from barley peated to 167ppm (phenol parts per million) and matured in Virgin Oak. Combining the smoke-rich character of Octomore with sweet honey and vanilla notes of the Virgin Oak casks from the great French oak forests of Allier, this expression is uncharted territory.
Age Statement7 Year Old
Nose: powerful smoke tempered by sweet rich oak with notes of dried fruit, giving way to buttered toast, vanilla, pine needles and green apples with a dusting of cinnamon.
Palate: sweetness, peat smoke and rich toasted oak ignite the taste buds, before coconut, lemon peel, caramel and sweet orange emerge.
Finish: long and lingering with honeysuckle and vanilla fading into smoke.
