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.
On the nose: Gentle vanilla over a toasted, buttery, linseed oil note. Malted milk biscuits with a hint of ginger.
In the mouth: Less forthcoming than the nose, though the ABV does assist; a nice chewy texture as is the way with Bruichladdich. Vanilla indeed, with some warming ginger and cinnamon. The oiliness – industrial, dirty rather than ashy peat – is pleasing indeed. Toffee, maple syrup, earthy and really all rather well balanced.
