Notify me when this product is available:

Cask: 1st fill Ex-Bourbon, 5-Year-Old

Distilled using 100% Scottish Concerto Barley in 2016, peated to 137.3 PPM, the new Octomore 13.1 is matured in a soft ex-Bourbon barrel in order to express the fruity, bold, and tar-smoke flavours of the barley. This has a billowing peat smoke, but dig a little deeper and you'll find sweet nutty, barley sugar, ripe pear and vanilla notes too, alongside oaky honey and earthy spice.

About the distillery

The Bruichladdich distillery on Islay is at the forefront of environmental action in Scotland's whisky industry. A recent project launched in 2021 aims to use sustainable energy to heat the distillery, creating only water as a waste product, eliminating all CO2 emissions.

Alongside their environmental credentials, Bruichladdich also proudly practices a very traditional approach to distilling that is fairly radical today. All their Single Malt Whiskies are based on Scottish Barley, with around half of that coming from Islay itself, and 5% organically grown.

Three whiskies in different styles are produced at Bruichladdich: The unpeated Bruichladdich bottles, the heavily peated Port Charlotte, and the ultra-heavily peated Octomore.

All Bruichladdich's whisky focus on terroir, quality, and careful cask maturation, with a degree of detail seen in few distilleries anywhere else in the world.
