New Octomore destillation with 309ppm !!!

News from the Laddieblog and I´m so curious how this great spirit will taste !!!

“The analysis of the 2010 harvest of Octomore barley has just arrived.

It certifies that the barley, grown by James Brown on Octomore farm, was malted to 309ppm – that’s three times more than any other Islay whisky. This figure also confirms previous results at this monumental ppm vicinity were not one offs.

The malted barley, nicknamed Affirmation, has been already distilled already finishing only last week. The spirit sample I have in front of me was distilled on 17th of June. The nose is extraordinarily creamy, mellow, rich  – almost sweet -  the peat so well integrated, frankly, it’s scary.”
