Octomore 07.3 is our uber-provenance single malt whisky crafted from malting barley grown on our friend James Brown’s Octomore farm. 07.3 was distilled in 2010 from grain harvested from a single field called Lorgba in 2009. The malt was peated to 169ppm and the spirit it gave matured here on Islay for its entire life with casks of American oak being married to casks from the great Spanish wine growing region of Ribera del Duero.
"This, OCTOMORE 07.3, IS the second release OF Octomore of Octomore - Octomore whisky made from barley grown two miles along the coast from the distillery at Farmer & friend James Brown's Octomore farm.
It was distilled in 2010 from grain harvested on Lorgba field the previous summer, peated to 169ppm, and matured here on Islay for all its life in American bourbon barrels and Spanish wine casks of Ribera del Duero. Uber provenance, uber experimental, Octomore of Octomore embodies the quintessence of our philosophy."
