    Bought this whisky last saturday and spoke to the importer. This is an 8 year old octomore.

  2. svenske2015 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Does cask number "OCT..." mean Octomore?

    And if you say "OCT means octave cask and not Octomore", please tell what kind of casks is meant with CI (bottle #112246), BR, TM, BN, BR, AR?

    Master Of Malt:

    "8 year old Islay single malt, independently bottled by The Single Cask. This one comes from an undisclosed distillery on the Isle of Islay, though what we do know about the whisky is that it was initially matured in an ex-bourbon cask before being moved over to a 50 litre Oloroso sherry cask to be finished for 6 months. Just 75 bottles were produced."

  3. Murphy scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    It does not matter what exactly this whisky is. The important thing is that it is a hammer material. Powerful, voluminous and very long on the tongue.

  4. DarrenHJA scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    It's not an Octomore!! I had deciphered what's inside while speaking to the bar owners and bartenders while drinking it at TSC SG.

  5. Fabio2 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    I suspect, "OCT ***" does not stand for "Octomore", but for "Octav barrel"
