Octomore 09.2 has followed the same path as its .1 counterpart until its final year. Distilled in 2012, this muscular liquid has spent four years maturing in ex-American oak casks before being re-casked into the finest French oak. Carefully selected from the Bordeaux region, these casks coax the dry peat smoke into an expert combination with sweet fruit flavours.

CHARACTER – All about the fruit and oak from the margaux, a totally different dimension to the 9.1 based on one year in the red wine casks. As it opens out there is more and more fruit, cherry, plum, strawberry. This is going to be legendary in years to come.
AROMA – Smoked Jam, blackcurrant, cherry, almond. The smoke is earthy, coffee grounds, oak and vanilla all mixed and always there is fruity strawberry/blackcurranty jam.
TASTE – Dark and complex on the palate, dark cherry, earthy smoke, bitter coffee. Ripe plums and pipe tobacco.
FINISH – Spice comes through, earthy, peppery, smoke as ever comes through strong on the palate.
COLOUR – Cinnamon .
