AWWWWWWWWWWWWWW BIG MAMA is back. We were worried that the Remy takeover of Bruichladdich would be the end of the availability of the Octomore line, but instead we've had easy access and lower prices. Amazing! This special whisky is smoked for days, to retain a higher level of phenol than any other whisky in the world. Something about the process, though, puts the Octomore in another league altogether. The depth of the spirit itself results in an incredibly rich and balanced whisky regardless of the massive PPM. Oily, intricate, brooding, and wild - Octomore is nothing like its smoky siblings from Islay. A truly unique spirit that must be tasted to be appreciated.
