The cult classic is back in Tasmania with the ninth edition of the super-heavily peated single malt from Islay. It offers an invitation to whisky fans to enter into dialogue. Bruichladdich, always at the forefront of transparency, encourages a discussion on all of facets of the production, ageing, and the myriad influences that affects the character of whisky.
Octomore 09.1 questions the fundamentals of superior single malt Scotch. Confident in its five year age statement, Head Distiller Adam Hannet demonstrates how a focus on raw ingredients and considered distillation can definitively debunk the myth that older is better. Distilled in 2012 from 100% Scottish barley, the 09.1 is matured full-term in top-tier ex-American whiskey casks.
