While the Black Art series had previously been focused on the unpeated Bruichladdich line, this time, the distillery has released a very special Octomore called OBA Concept_0.1 - the casks used for the maturation of the spirit are of course undisclosed as for all Black Art bottlings, leaving consumers with a secret and mysterious spirit to unveil. If you purchased a bottle, you can still ask for more information on Bruichladdich's website thanks to the batch code on your bottle! Limited availability of 3000 bottles. Sold in 500ml.

Tasting Notes

"The peaty Octomore signature is definitely showing at first sniff, followed by rich summer fruits, salted caramel, sweet spices, herbal honey and pine bonbons. The spices turn from sweet to hot on the palate. The liquid is warm and earthy with a strong red wine influence--think red currants and strawberries. Underlying notes of minty dark chocolate also appear after a few seconds in the mouth. The finish is lingering, still strong on the smoky side but also showing spicy and fruity hints. A killer dram!"
