Octomore 8.3 Masterclass Islay Barley

Released in 2017, the 8.3 Masterclass edition of Octomore was marketed by Bruichladdich as being the peatiest whisky produced in Scotland at whopping 309.1ppm. The barley was harvested on Islay from the Church Field on Octomore Farm.

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.

Matured in ex-Bourbon American oak, and ex-Pauillac, Ventoux, Rhone and Burgundy European oak casks.

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. Pat's Whisk(e)y is the result of over fifteen years of passion and dedication to the goal of creating one of the most complete libraries of whisky and whiskey ever amassed by an individual collector.
