Elements of Islay, Oc5 (Octomore) (500ml)
Elements of Islay - Oc5 (Octomore)
Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
The peaty beast returns, bringing its classic cereal notes and some juicy fruit for good measure. This Octomore was distilled in 2011 and aged in a single bourbon barrel.
CORE FLAVOUR: Cereal and fruit salad.
NOSE: Multi-layered and fascinating, the nose offers lots of malty cereal, wet straw and peaty smoke alongside juicy fruit-salad notes of grapes and oranges.
PALATE: More fruit at first mingles with nuts, toffee, and cereal before an explosion of smoke takes over, slowly dissipating and leading to baked apple pastries.
FINISH: Baked apples and wisps of smoke from a wood-burning stove.
ABOUT ELEMENTS OF ISLAY
The Elements of Islay are a range of iconic, small-batch, expertly sourced independently bottled whiskies.
The Limited Edition range consists of single malt bottlings from individual Islay distilleries identified with periodic symbols and batch numbers (Lp1, Ar2, and so on).
They are bottled either as single casks or as small batches between 3 and 20 carefully selected casks.
These expressions celebrate the distilleries’ individual character while presenting a balanced and characterful whisky bottled at full proof.
