Tasting note

  • Appearance : Or
  • Nose : initially the nose is sea spray and caramel, lemon balm and pipe tobacco. Slowly, the peat smoke rises from the glass, gentle but strong lifting vanilla, mint, toffee, golden syrup and almond. Peach follows with pear syrup and buttercup. A symphony, a delight to experience.
  • Palate : wow! Smoothness, sweetness and then smoke. A texture like no other, satin soft and devilishly warming. The American oak influence is in perfect tune with the smoke and soft fruits delicately, skilfully coaxed from the still during exceptionally slow distillation. Vanilla, honey, citrus rise up to be met with sea spray and leather, smoked mussels mix with autumn bracken and crème brûlée.
  • Overall : as the sweetness from the oak fades the salt comes to the fore one last time while the gentle peat smoke steady and true grows and outlasts all else.

The brand

Octomore tire son nom d’une petite ferme jonchée sur la colline qui surplombe le village de Port Charlotte sur l’île d’Islay, non loin de la distillerie Bruichladdich. Cette ferme-distillerie ferme ses portes en 1852 après seulement quatre décennies d’activité. En 2002, le maître distillateur de Bruichladdich, Jim McEwan, souhaite créer le whisky le plus tourbé du monde avec Octomore, pour compléter la gamme composée de whiskies non tourbés Bruichalddich et des whiskies très tourbés de Port-Charlotte. Au-delà de sa concentration phénolique hors du commun, le whisky Octomore se caractérise par une démarche innovante dans l’assemblage et le vieillissement de ces spiritueux.

The distillery

Following its acquisition in 2000 by a group of investors, the Bruichladdich distillery underwent a meticulous renovation in 2001, which enabled the owners to keep almost all of the original 19th century equipment, including an open brewing tank and very elongated onion-shaped stills (the stills for the second distillation are six metres high). The resulting single malt is very mildly peaty, being characterised by its coastal origins, with a scent of sea air and salty flavours on the palate. Reserving all of its production for the single malt market, Bruichladdich is also the only distillery to age and bottle its whisky on the isle of Islay. It produces two heavily peated releases: Port Charlotte and Octomore.
