The .1 Octomores represent the baseline for the following releases. In this expression, 12.1 delves into the core Octomore spirit that everything else is built on. 5 years in first fill American oak whiskey barrels from a 2014 harvest of 100% Scottish barley. Peppery and sweet on the palate, with a texture of warm golden syrup. Honey and peat smoke then fired oak chips and peaty apricot jam open. Another sip brings malted barley sugars and straw, heather flower and a nutty nougat sweetness. A mineral sandy note sits on the palate and brings through a dry phenolic earthy smoke and hints of orange zest and pear drops.
