Bruichladdich Octomore 10.4 French Virgin Oak Cask (63.5% abv)

Limit of one per customer

Octomore has always challenged convention. Many preconceived ideas about whisky have been overturned but perhaps the most provocative stigma still to be shattered is that which surrounds age.

Distilled from Scottish barley in 2016, this three year old Octomore 10.4 is the youngest ever released, yet the most impressive. Standing alone in any heavyweight line-up, the depth, balance and composure of this Virgin Oak release is astounding.

Twenty-eight casks cut from Limousin oak have been subjected to a high toast before making their way to Warehouse 12 for filling. Their high tannic impact is subsided by a high toast level which gives way to a dry fruit character that is impeccably well-rounded.

Bruichladdich Octomore 10.3 Islay Barley Whisky (61.3% abv)

Distilled in 2013 from the 2012 harvest, the Octomore 10.3 has been brought home by farmer James Brown. Taking on the challenge of growing Islay Barley, he braces the conditions of the wet and wild west coast to combine an exploration of Islay terroir and stratospheric smoke.

For the first time, the .3 is matured for six aged years but crucially only in ex-American oak. These top-quality casks have gently coaxed this Octomore spirit into life in Warehouse 16, next to our 10.1 edition. The components of our 10.1 and 10.3 are so similar, the distinct flavour difference must be owed to the barley’s respective growing location.

Bruichladdich Octomore Edition 10.1 (59.8% abv)

Distilled from Scottish barley in 2013, Octomore 10.1 is the benchmark of the 10s series. Deliberately stripped back to an ex- American oak maturation, aged just 5 years old, the .1 edition exposes the structure and presence of the Octomore spirit. Combining smoke with a modest maturation, this 10.1 first and foremost demonstrates the true potential of a considered, patient distillation.

Bruichladdich Port Charlotte Islay Barley 2012 (50% abv)

This high provenance, heavily-peated single malt was distilled from Islay-grown barley in 2012.

Bruichladdich Port Charlotte MC: 01 2009 (56.3% abv)

After many years of experience working in our loch side warehouses, our head distiller has identified a unique relationship between our Port Charlotte smoke and sweet wine casks. The fruitiness is a fitting balance for our evocative spirit. Each iteration of our cask evolution bottlings is special, not just because they are limited, but because the utmost care has been taken to select the best quality casks. In this case, our Port Charlotte MC:01 has been matured in ex-Sicilian wine casks. Legendary, rich and unctuous, the European oak has previously held this fortified wine for nine years, resulting in a glorious autumnal whisky.

Bruichladdich Bere Barley 2008 (50% abv)

Six-row Bere is Britain’s oldest strain of cultivated cereal. Some believe it was brought to the Hebrides by Norse invaders but it may have been here in the Neolithic, some 5,000 years ago. Bere is a hardy and resilient grain, adapted to poor soil conditions and a short growing season with long hours of daylight. Yields are low and the grain proved difficult to mill. The dense grist was to break our Victorian equipment when we first tried to mash it. But the results speak for themselves.
