About the Bruichladdich Octomore 08.3 Masterclass 5 Year Old Limited Edition

Claimed to be the peatiest whisky produced in Scotland as part of its new Octomore Eights Masterclass series, the Bruichladdich Octomore 08.3 Masterclass edition contains barley peated to a phenol level of 309ppm (parts per million).  Until now the peatiest whisky on record was Octomore 06.3, released in 2015 and containing barley peated to 258ppm.

Following distillation, the heavily peated spirit was matured in a combination of ex-Bourbon casks, and ex-wine casks made from European oak, for five years.

Tasting Notes

Colour: Warm Gold
Nose: Explosive with earthy peat and a little bit of lemon.
Palate: Very very very peaty and woody. A hint of iodine too. Pepperiness (ginger, chilli spice) is evident.
Finish: Long lasting. The peat is still present with still a little lemony taste. Warming, bacon and smoke.
Aging: Maturing life in 56% ex-bourbon, and 44 % wine casks (Paulliac, Ventoux, Rhone, Burgundy).

History of Bruichladdich

A Victorian Distillery Re-imagined for the Future
Since Bruichladdich’s resurrection in 2001, our ambitions have gone beyond the simple idea of making and selling single malt scotch whisky. Our goal was to be an antidote to the industry norm.We set course to be pioneers, provocateurs and change makers. Reconnecting the land and the dram, re-evaluating the prescribed ‘rules’ of the industry, questioning where flavour comes from and understanding why agricultural ecosystems are important.

This was a journey that would go on to inspire an army of distillers and drinkers across the world. As we continue this path, we discover that the more we learn, the more we know we need to do. Today, our commitments to people and the planet grow stronger, ensuring we use our business as a force for good.

With our empowered team, we pursue this bigger purpose and maintain our mission to create the most thought-provoking spirits we can. As Progressive Hebridean Distillers, we hope our actions will stimulate other entrepreneurial start-ups to emerge on our island home and further afield, each one adding richness and diversity, paving the way for an increasingly dynamic and self-sufficient future.
