RECENT BREAK-EVEN BOTTLE

Our first Break-Even Bottle of the pandemic is Bruichladdich's Octomore 11.1 "Super-Heavily Peated" Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky!

On the nose: citrus, vanilla, and light peat smoke. On the palate: a syrupy texture gives way to big, balanced, dry peat, like an earthy campfire of damp wood and pine needles, interlaced with clean fruit and floral notes. Once you've tasted it straight, add a teaspoon of water or so to tame the burn and expand the flavours.

Octomore 11.1 is one of four releases in the 11s series from Bruichaddich's super-heavily peated range. This project aims to demonstrate how quality ingredients don't require a lot of time to reach maturity. Distilled in 2014 from the 2013 harvest of Scottish-grown Concerto and Propino barley (malted to 139.6 ppm) and aged for 5 years in first-fill American oak casks from Jim Beam, Heaven Hill, and Jack Daniel's. Bottled at a powerful 59.4% abv without added colour or chill-filtration. Only 30,000 bottles released into the wild.
