Octomore. it's that moment when the rules change. You just have to trust in your instincts. There's no questioning whether we've made the right choices with our Scottish barley, fermentation time, in the patient distillation or the oak we've filled. From that point on, you just have to relinquish control and let the liquid lead you. It's like you've got to take a leap of faith. close your eyes and jump. see where you land. - Adam Hannett, Head Distiller

Our Octomore Islay barley is harvested, malted and distilled separately, even from our other Islay barley harvests, in order to become a single field, single vintage single malt. Comparison of our Octomore 11.1 and 11.3 is our finest lesson in the differences in barley character from the respective growing regions. Situated just two miles from the distillery, this specific 2013 harvest was raised in Irene's field, where only 28 acres were planted that year. Unlike its Scottish Mainland counterpart, this field is exposed to the climatic conditions and salt spray of wild Atlantic swells. The distinctive flavor and rarity of this barley is something truly special when combined with the ex-American whiskey cask maturation.
