OCTOMORE Masterclass 8.4 Single Malt Whisky
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.
From a set of four very different expressions- that you can identify instantly both as Octomores and as different whiskies in their own right. Head distiller Adam Hannett has put together a set of four expressions in what he terms as a “Masterclass”.
