The .2 Octomore are always on top of my wish list. Bruichladdich's wine finishes are amongst the best one can find. Mark Reyniers and Jim McEwan knowledge was indispensable for the modern Bruichladdich; Adam Hannett absorbed every drop of knowledge from his master and continues the work.
Octomore 11.2 was distilled in the winter of 2014 and is composed of 2 distinct parcels. Parcel 1 - around 25% - matured in European casks from the Pauillac region. Parcel 2 matured in ex-bourbon casks and finished in Saint Julien wine casks. Octomore 11.2 is a web exclusive in contrast to its predecessors that were to be found in travel retail stores in airports.
