product Details

Octomore 1.1 Inaugural 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.

This was the first release of the Octomore, and at 131ppm this was the most heavily peated spirit in the world at the time.

Matured for 5 years from October 2002 until April 2008, only 6,000 bottles released.
