latest addition to the Octomore
series of bottlings - the Octomore
The special 2009

bottled at a massive 140ppm and has been
matured in an American Bourbon cask,
before being transfered to a Chateau
Petrus wine cask. Orpheus is 5 year old
and was bottled at 61% ABV and is a
limited edition of 15,000 bottles.
This dram is heavily peated and
sweet. It should be available from
specialist whisky retailers from
this week priced around £80 - £90.

If you you tried the earlier
Octomore releases, you may be
interested to see what influence the
Chateau Petrus wine cask has had on
the Orpheus, as Chateau Petrus wine
is considered a rare super premium
wine. But does a super premium wine
guarantee a premium whisky, let us
know if you taste it.
