The 6th release in the super heavily-peated Octomore range from Bruichladdich. 6.1 is produced from barley grown at the Octomore farm on Islay and then peated to 167ppm. Matured for 5 years. Non-chillfiltered, naturally coloured and bottled at a cask strength of 57%. (Bottle size 750ml)
Nose: Sea spray, wet sea weed and hints of oily iodine. Then peat smoke with cracked black peppercorn, heather flowers and water mint.
Palate: Crisp, malted barley then the sweet oak, giving notes of vanilla, toasted rye bread and walnuts followed by fresh lime, poached apple and pear.
Finish: A warm and thrilling experience long after the glass is empty.
