This latest bottling from master distiller Jim McEwan's alchemical lair brings together the grace, elegance and complexity for which Octomore spirit has become synonymous and marries it with some of the finest oak in the world, producing an unctuous spirit of sublime mouthfeel and equipoise, rich and assertive with an understated power that befits its Islay pedigree. A limited edition in the award-winning cult Octomore series this is a staggering 167ppm and is bottled at cask strength.   NOSE Golden syrup, smoke and red berry fruits to begin. The gentle smoke weaves through poached pear and apple pie from the distillation with the ripe fruits from the cask, red berries peach and apricot. PALATE The combination of sweet fruits and smoke is classic Octomore. Huge levels of peat sit in perfect balance with the flavours released from the cask. Add a drop or two of water and we get cherry, bramble, strawberry from the Syrah casks; cinder toffee, brown sugar, honey and crme brulee from the American oak burst through. FINISH As lemon zest, red fruit and vanilla oak fades away the deep smoke lingers, a potent reminder of the strength and character of Islay
