The Octomore 13.1 is a highly peated single malt Scotch whisky from the Bruichladdich distillery. This whisky is distilled from the 2015 harvest of 100% Scottish Mainland barley.

Peat Levels: The barley used for this whisky is malted to a remarkably high 137.3 parts per million (PPM) of peat, making it incredibly peaty, consistent with Octomore's reputation for super-heavily peated expressions. It is matured in high-quality American oak casks.

 Flavor Profile:

Color: Described as "Golden Hebridean sands," which suggests a warm, amber hue.

Nose:The initial aroma is characterized by sweet nutty smoke with barley sugar and ripe fruit.

There are notes of apricot syrup, ripe pear, and malty elements like barley flour and Crème Brulee.

Sweetness comes through with honey, tablet, and vanilla notes from the American oak.

The peat smoke is described as delicate yet powerful, with hints of charred oak, boot polish, leather, and earthy undertones.

Palate:

 The texture on the palate is viscous, and it's reminiscent of densely smoked grains.

There's a mix of smoked granola with honeyed fruit.

Subsequent sips reveal complexity with notes of smoked apricot jam, barley flour, peat embers, burnt heather, gooseberry citrus, and sweet Turkish delight.

The influence of oak is evident with oak chips, sugared almonds, and hints of chocolate-limes, along with spicy aniseed.

Adding a drop of water intensifies the smokiness and brings out the whisky's minerality.

Finish:

 The finish begins with sweetness but eventually fades to an earthy, mossy note on the palate.

Dry heathery peat smoke lingers.

There are salty-citrus and floral notes, including geranium and rose, which emerge gently to round off the tasting experience.

This tasting note provides a comprehensive description of the Octomore 13.1, highlighting its intense peatiness, complex flavor profile, and the influence of American oak. The whisky is known for its youthful and dynamic character, in keeping with the Octomore tradition, and it offers a balanced combination of sweet and smoky elements, making it a distinctive expression for enthusiasts of heavily peated Scotch whisky.
