Octomore .3 offers a deep profile in the terroir, weighing its phenol content of 4 ppm. It offers aromas of earthy peat smoke, lemon, thyme, sea salt and vanilla with a sharp and medicinal tip. The mouth offers notes of salt, honey and lemon, as well as notes of pear, redhead and oak in development against a thick peaty smoke background.
Distilled in 20 with 0%Scottish barley from the 20 harvest, Octomore .3 is for the first time, matured for six years, but only in American oak barrels. The components of Octomore .1 and Octomore .3 are so similar that the difference in flavour must be attributed to the respective growth site of the barley.
Forget the whiskey. Forget Octomore you thought you knew. This series will destabilize even the most fervent aficionados. Complex and seductive, it's Octomore.
