Peated Single Malt
Bruichladdich // Islay, Scotland
Octomore X4+10 is a limited edition release in Bruichladdich's super heavily-peated range. It's dubbed X4 as the single malt was distilled four times instead of two reaching an ABV of 89% after distillation. It was made with 100% Scottish-grown barley peated to 162ppm in 2007. After 10 years of aging, it is bottled at 70% ABV making this the highest ABV whisky released by the distillery. The barrels used for maturation were a mix of first-fill American whiskey, oloroso sherry, and Rivesaltes vin doux naturel sweet wine casks. Only 3000 bottles available and sold exclusively at the distillery's website.
