Octomore Ten is unleashed once more. Taking a different maturation path than its decade old predecessors, this third edition demonstrates the playfulness of the warehouse master. A patchwork quilt of sorts, many parcels of sophisticated spirit have been knitted together to complete this series’ relentless path of discovery.

Distilled from 100% Scottish grown Optic barley, harvested in 2007 and distilled in 2008

Matured entirely on Islay for 10 years in Port, Cognac, ex-American whiskey and Virgin Oak casks

Full term maturation in 1st fill Port pipes (37%), 1st fill Cognac casks (31%), 2nd fill ex American whiskey casks (20%)

With an additional parcel from 3 years first fill ex American, 2 years virgin oak, final 6 years in ex American whiskey casks (12%)

Official Tasting Notes:

Character: A dram of depth and worth taking some time to get to know. Greater than the sum of its parts and the parts that combine to make it have an individual story of their own.

Aroma: There is a richness, chocolate, tobacco, bonfire smoke, leather. Vanilla custard, blueberry dry straw and pear drops.

Taste: Warming, spicy – mulled wine. Leather and tobacco, malt sugar, icing sugar. All wrapped in earthy peaty smoke. Dry on the palate.

Finish: Oak driven, coconut, tobacco, vanilla, then smoke. In balance the time in the cask has calmed the smoke, both through the phenols lowering naturally over time and the influence of the oak becoming greater.

Colour: Tawny.
