Bruichladdich Octomore Edition 09.1 διάλογος / 156 PPM (Dialogos)



Bruichladdich Octomore Edition 09.1 διάλογος / 156 (Dialogos)
Another wonderful Octomore, the 9.1 has been released. This time it has been distilled in 2012 using 100% cottish Concerto barley. And in typical Bruichladdich, Octomore style, peated to a bonfire lip smacking 156 PPM! And bottled at a wonderful cask strength 59.1% ABV, so much more room for teasing those intense flavours out with a touch of water.
Nose: Hot bonfire embers, oak and smoke, pine and fresh grapes, intense sweetness from the cask, vanilla, toffee. Smoke is thick, smooth and vegetal, peat and earthy.
Palate: Smacking smoke and charcoal on arrival, forests, apricots. Soft on the palate despite with the high cask strength ABV, not aggressive at all, nutty, fudge, some coconut and hint of some flower floral.
Finishing: FOREVER! Very, very long and peppery smoke dissipates into ginger and oak. Warm and the lingering peat smoke that last flavour to go forever and forever.
