Bruichladdich Octomore 09.1
Our Octomore single malts have defied received whisky wisdom since they were first distilled in 2002. Sometimes bottled bold and brazen at 5 years old, always super heavily peated and cask strength, every edition is a liquid embodiment of ‘The Impossible Equation’.
We challenge preconceptions of what constitutes quality whisky. In each new set of four we consider the elements that contribute towards the depth and balance of each youthful drop. Is it the sourcing of the raw ingredients? Is it the careful selection of the wood’s quality and style? Or is it in the influence of nature; weather, climate, soil?
Polarised opinions… exposure to criticism… we accept the inevitable in the hopes of unlocking new realms of flavour. Those who join us in adopting this mindset, that quiet confidence, will receive organoleptic rewards for risks taken.
