Bruichladdich Octomore 9.2
As with all great experiments, one variable must change. Octomore 09.2 has followed the same path as its 09.1 counterpart until its final year. Distilled just one week apart, this edition explores the influence of flavourful European oak.
Sweet fruit, cherry, plum and strawberry notes introduce an interesting dimension to this super-heavily peated spirit but it is perhaps the values of our fellow French artisans that peak our interest.
Curious. Sensitive. Attentive.
We draw parallels from the philosophies of those who have passed on their toasted barriques. Knowing that this wood has originally been sourced with care, filled with liquid that has been pain-stakingly crafted, gives us the confidence to commit our own precious liquid to its full command.
