For its Octomore 12.3 release, the Bruichladdich Distillery used barley distilled on Islay - specifically from Octomore Farm. Peated to 118.1PPM, this expression was aged in a combination of first-fill American whiskey casks and first-fill Pedro Ximénez sherry casks from Fernando de Castilla (75% American whiskey casks, 25% Pedro Ximénez casks). Powerfully peaty, with radiant notes of sherried fruit shining through.
Nose: Honey, dried peels, and sultanas, wrapped up in notes of charcoal and sea spray.
Palate: Baked earth, quince, cacao, cigar box, and more smoky richness.
Finish: A hint of ash and dark chocolate mousse remains.
ABV : 62.1%
SIZE : 700ML
