Our Octomore Islay barley is harvested, malted and distilled separately, even from our other Islay barley harvests, in order to become a single field, single vintage single malt. Comparison of our Octomore 11.1 and 11.3 is our finest lesson in the differences in barley character from the respective growing regions. Situated just two miles from the distillery, this specific 2013 harvest was raised in Irene’s field, where only 28 acres were planted that year. Unlike its Scottish Mainland counterpart, this field is exposed to the climatic conditions and salt spray of wild Atlantic swells. The distinctive flavor and rarity of this barley is something truly special when combined with the ex-American whiskey cask maturation.
Summery and bright. Lovely light floral notes and sweet citrus, with honey and vanilla really holding everything together.
Spirit is floral and fruity on the nose, and on the palate a huge malty character at the fore with a sensation of barley flour sweetness and smoked orange peel.
Dry smoke, earthy with dry grass come through. Burnt heather, toffee and malt sugar all play a part in a complex long finish
