Octomore Masterclass 8.1
The spirit of Octomore has been defying logic for over fifteen years. The “what if” moment that once seemed almost absurd has progressively morphed into something endlessly alluring. It begat liquid like no other, an elusive collection, the stuff of legend.
Now, suddenly, there are Eight. Led by the structural brilliance of 08.1, we can pause at this symbolic moment to enjoy a single malt Masterclass. The experimental ethos, the muscular quality, is still very much to the fore, but there is enlightenment now, a sure-footed confidence. 08.1 is the necessary benchmark, the launch pad from which others can only follow.
Here is our first encounter with the colossal numbers, and the epiphany that follows the cork being lifted. Are the numbers a distraction? For it appears there is to be no ordeal by fire, no unbearable assault on the senses.
