DESCRIPTION

Octomore 12.2 follows in the footsteps of previous Sauternes legends, confirming that heavy peat smoke combined with the sweet dessert wine of the French region is an incredible pairing.

A SUPERCHARGED INFLUENCE

Octomore 12.2 follows in the footsteps of the now infamous Octomore 4.2 (Comus), which became one of the most acclaimed and sought- after whiskies in our distillery’s portfolio.

Making a statement in its surprising pairing and balance of sweet and smoky, this Octomore 12.2 spent three and a half years in ex-American oak casks, building a solid foundation of fruity and floral spirit in our lochside warehouses before being recasked in to impeccable quality Sauternes casks.

The pivotal role of the Sauternes casks add 18 months of supercharged fruit.

Melon, white peach, honeysuckle and coconut add a real twist and sweetness to compliment the peat smoke of this heavily phenolic malt.

TASTING NOTES

CHARACTER

The Sauternes casks bring another dimension to the vitality of Octomore. The honey-soaked fruit and dry smoke work beautifully together; that classic combination of smoke and sweet fruit coming to the fore.

COLOUR

Amber

NOSE

Notes of melon, honey and smoked almonds can be found on the nose. Toasted oak and earthy smoke are held back by layers of fruit and honey, opening up to orange peel, peaches, ripe sweet melon, lemon and honey - all wrapped in a malted grain sweetness. Dried apple and pear drops come next with a wave of peat smoke and toasted oak, releasing earthy and pine resin notes.

PALATE

Lusciously soft and sweet, fruit sweeps across the palate with bursts of lemon zest, vanilla, melon and orange blossom. Another sip highlights the structure the French oak brings with caramel, baking spices and a touch of dryness, carrying the smoke and the malt sweetness. The presence of ripe fruit drizzled in sweet syrup speaks of the influence of the Sauternes casks.

FINISH

On the finish, a salty lemon tang arrives as the fruit and oak subtly fade. Earthy peat smoke moves in to dominate the finish and stamp the Octomore DNA on this dram.
