The Octomore releases reach double figures with this new tenth series. Octomore is the most peaty series of the Bruichladdich distillery, located on the Isle of Islay in Scotland. The experiment consists of various outputs with highly peated products, often over one hundred parts per million, going to classify some Octomore as the most peated whiskies in the world. The numbering follows the previous series, 10.1, 10.2 etc. Three of four releases are already available, while the fourth we will have to wait until the beginning of 2020.
- Octomore 10.1: aged in ex-Bourbon barrels since 2013, 58.9%, price of £ 125 and 107PPM peat;
- Octomore 10.2: aged in ex-Bourbon barrels and French oak barrels (probably Chateau d’Yquem) for eight years, 56.9%, price at £ 150 and 96.9PPM
- Octomore 10.3: aged in ex-Bourbon barrels, barley comes from a single 2013 harvest, 61.3%, £ 175 and 114PPM. It is a single vintage whisky, with the barley coming from a single field, an almost unique bottling;
- Octomore 10.4: distilled in 2016, 63.5%, £ 155 and aged in 28 French oak Limousine barrels.
