The Brackla Octave cask NO 9337549 has aged for 11 years in oak casks then spent the final 9 months in an octave cask. This is a limited exclusive release For The Spirits Embassy and Whiskies of Scotland, of only 88 bottles.
Chosen by our Brand Ambassador Fergus Simpson and Snr. Manager of Whiskies Ian Logan this release of Brackla is the best example both have sampled this year.
Ian spoke about the continued high quality of these bottlings and how the Octave maturation works so well with the whisky
"Brackla is one of those whiskies that flies a little under the radar but with releases such as this you fully appreciate the marriage between great distillation and great maturation".
The Octave range is where the finest whiskies have a final maturation in ex sherry octave casks, the spirit is invigorated by the increased wood contact in the smaller casks, bringing you a spectacular dram.
