Octomore 10 Year Old 2016 Second Release
Octomore is the super-heavily peated single malt produced by Bruichladdich distillery, the most routinely heavily peated in the world. The whisky is named after the farm of the same name, located on a hillside north of the town of Port Charlotte. Having been traditionally an un-peated single malt due to the needs of its former owners for their blends, Murray McDavid were quick to diversify the Bruichladdich portfolio, also introducing the more lightly peated Port Charlotte and Lochindaal.
Distilled using malt peated to a colossal 167ppm, this was filled into fresh bourbon and Grenache Blanc casks. It spent the next decade slumbering in P2 - the ancient stone warehouse in the village of Port Charlotte, close to the western shore of Loch Indaal.
One of 18,000 bottles, this second bottling of 10 year old Octomore was released in 2016.
This bottle is being sold from the Pat's Whisk(e)y private collection which, numbering in excess of 9,000 bottles and over 2,000 miniatures, is the single largest collection of whisky ever to be brought to auction.
