Octomore 10.2/96.9 Scottish Barley
Peated Single Malt
Octomore // Islay, Scotland
Octomore 10.2/96.9 is one of four releases in the tenth edition of this 'super heavily-peated' line from Bruichladdich. This tenth edition has a 'softer smoke' than previous releases with Octomore 10.2 having its barley peated to just 96.9ppm. The barley varieties used in the whisky are Optic and Oxbridge, 100% of it sourced from Scotland. After distillation in 2010, the single malt matured for the first four years in first-fill American oak whiskey barrels. Then the single malt was recasked into ex-Sauternes wine barrels for another four years. Bottled without chill-filtration or added color at cask strength of 56.9% ABV. Only 42,000 bottles produced.
