Bruichladdich Octomore Comus Edition 04.2 PPM 167 700mL

The Bruichladdich Octomore 'Comus Edition' is the most heavily peated whisky in the world. Matured in the finest oak possible, impregnated with the greatest sweet wine known to man. Distilled in 2007 and matured for five years (in whole or in part) in Chateau D'Yquem casks, there was only 18,000 bottles produced of this whisky.

It is Golden Honey/Ripe Barley in colour. Medium weight and well defined for a young Islander. The texture is rich, sweet and mellow and the viscosity of the Sauternes brings balance to the power of the peat. A most sophisticated Octomore – it’s kind of unbelievable to see “The Beast” tamed a little!

The opening is a beautiful combination of peat smoke, bracken, leather, tobacco pouches, bog myrtle & briny waves. Then, little twists of mint toffee enter the system as do the nutty oak notes – both French and American. And so the dance goes on, but where is the French beauty? She waits patiently on the fringes then, at exactly the right moment, she makes her entrance from the epicentre of the spirit, bringing aromatics and flavour the young Ileach can only dream of. From deep in her soul she commits to this amazing relationship, the aromatics relay the message to the waiting taste buds to expect a whole new experience: the raisiny botrytis of the Premier Cru Superieur Sauternes. Its flavours – pear syrup, apricot, candied fruit, guava, passion and citrus fruits leached from the wood. You have to wonder just how surreal this is – a massively peated beast being seduced by a delectably sweet, French beauty – passion changes everything.

The palate is supernatural. The taster is taken on an incredible journey of discovery, the coming together of flavours so far removed from each other you would think it would be a disaster. The kaleidoscope of aromatics transcends beautifully onto the palate which is going crazy with excitement: a new sensory solar system.

This love affair should never have happened. This is Bruichladdich walking on the wild side, bringing pleasure and excitement to those who have that sense of adventure and passion. The finish may not last for an eternity – but the experience will.

Octomore has an undeniable ability to stimulate conversations in single malt circles. Defiantly challenging the established preconceptions of what constitutes a quality whisky, the series itself polarises opinion.

Sometimes bold and brazen at 5 years old, always super heavily peated and bottled at cask strength, every bottle of Octomore becomes a liquid embodiment of ‘The Impossible Equation’. It should not work and only upon tasting it for yourself, will you understand its true potential.

In each new series of four, we have considered the elements that contribute towards the depth and balance of each youthful drop… Is it in the sourcing of the raw ingredients? The careful selection of the wood’s quality and style? Or is it in the influence of nature; weather, climate, soil? We have initiated this intellectual exercise, welcomed the challenge to our doorstep, and exposed ourselves to criticism in the hope that we will unlock new realms of flavour.
