Octomore Ten Years Dialogos
Peated Single Malt
Octomore // Islay, Scotland
Octomore Ten Years Dialogos is the third limited edition Octomore 10 Year release. It is made from 100% Scottish Optic barley harvested in 2007. The super heavily peated (167ppm) single malt was distilled in 2008 and matured on Islay for 10 years. The bulk of the whisky matured in a mix of 1st fill port pipes (37%), 1st fill cognac casks (31%), and 2nd fill ex-American whiskey casks. For the remainder, a single malt aged for 3 years in 1st fill ex American, 2 years virgin oak, and 6 years in ex American whiskey casks made up the difference. Bottled at 56.8% without added color or chill-filtration. This is a limited release with only 12,000 bottles produced.
Peated Single Malt100% malted barley from a single distillery. Dried with peat.

"There's peat, of course, but this has so much more to offer. Hints of malted barley and straw, with notes of tobacco, as well as vanilla custard and golden syrup. The palate is warm and comforting, like a bonfire, with leather and tobacco leaves. Finally a touch of marzipan. This Octomore lingers for a long time."
