Oc6

Islay single malt scotch whisky

This young Octomore was distilled in 2011 and aged in ex-bourbon barrels for more than eight years. As expected, it’s packed with pungent smoke, but also offers a wealth of citrus fruit and toasted grain flavours. 870 bottles produced in total.

Tasting notes

  • Nose

    Burnt matches and iodine softened by lemon and orange peel, tinned fruit and maraschino cherries. Sumptuous melted caramel and ginger emerge after adding a drop of water.
  • Palate

    The chewy texture instantly erupts with hot peat and astringent smoke, before opening up into sea salt and cracked black pepper. Past the spice, there’s a generous helping of grapefruit marmalade spread on toasted rye bread.
  • Finish

    Dry finish with more citrus fruit, malted barley, tarragon and green tomatoes.
