Bruichladdich Octomore 10 Whisky - Second Limited Edition
About the BrandClassic Bruichladdich whiskies prove the traditional whisky regions of Scotland make no sense. Please don't think that labelling a whisky "Islay" has anything to do with taste. The truth is far more complicated and interesting.
Nose: Rum and raisin ice-cream and huge notes of gin botanicals. Hints of smoked almonds and honey develop with candied lemon, tropical fruit and huge oily peat smoke.
Palate: Sweet, creamy palate entry, quickly backed up by a coastal explosion of peat smoke and spice. Chipotle chilli, caramel and toasted barley. Very oily and rich.
Finish: Long, spiced finish with hints of saffron on the tail.
