DISTILLERY NOTES (provided by Adam Hannett, distiller at Bruichladdich):
Octomore 14.1 is described by the distillery as the backbone of this year’s series release, serving as a reference point for both 14.2 and 14.3 to be compared against. 14.1 is distilled from 100 percent Scottish barley and malted to 128.9 parts per million (ppm) before aging in ex-American whiskey casks. For reference, to be considered a heavily peated Scotch, the whisky need only be malted to 30 ppm — which demonstrates just how much smoke there is in this bottle. Octomore 14.1 is intended to show the finesse between whisky, smoke, and cask and imparts notes of sweet caramel, vanilla, and hints of citrus among peated smoke.
Distilled in 2017 from the 2016 harvest of 100% Scottish grown Concerto barley. Aged five years in first fill ex American whiskey casks.
