Bruichladdich Octomore 13.3 5-Year-Old Single Malt Whisky

Bruichladdich was built in 1881 by the Harvey brothers, who owned the Dundashill and Yoker grain distilleries in Glasgow.
Unlike their neighboring distilleries on the island of Islay, the Bruichladdich range is made without peat. Without the influence of smoke, they expose the brilliance of our raw ingredient, barley. Stepping further outside of whisky tradition, they have traced ingredients from origin to bottling, embracing every growing season, the subtlety of changing barley varietals, and the methods applied in growing them.

Octomore is the super-heavy-peated single malt produced by the Bruichladdich distillery, the most routinely heavily peated malt 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 traditionally been an unpeated single malt due to the needs of its former owners for their blends, Murray McDavid was quick to diversify the Bruichladdich portfolio, also introducing the more lightly peated Port Charlotte and Lochindaal.

Octomore 13.3 from Bruichladdich is made entirely from single-source barley, grown on islay, harvested in 2015, and peated to 129.3 PPM. This Single Malt Scotch was distilled in 2016 and aged for five years in a combination of first-fill European oak casks from Rivesaltes in France and Ribera del Duero in Spain, along with first-fill American whiskey barrels.
