169 PPM /// AGED 5 YEARS
THE SPIRIT OF OCTOMORE HAS BEEN DEFYING LOGIC FOR OVER FIFTEEN YEARS. THE “WHAT IF” MOMENT THAT ONCE SEEMED ALMOST ABSURD HAS PROGRESSIVELY MORPHED INTO SOMETHING ENDLESSLY ALLURING. NOW, SUDDENLY, THERE ARE EIGHT.
Octomore 07.3 is our uber-provenance single malt whisky crafted from malting barley grown on our friend James Brown’s Octomore farm. 07.3 was distilled in 2010 from grain harvested from a single field called Lorgba in 2009. The malt was peated to 169ppm and the spirit it gave matured here on Islay for its entire life with casks of American oak being married to casks from the great Spanish wine growing region of Ribera del Duero.
