Elements of Islay Octomore Oc4 / 59,1%The Elements of Islay is a range of single malt and blended malt whiskies created in honor of the legendary Isle of Islay. It was introduced by London based Specialty Drinks Ltd in 2008 and new bottlings are released several times a year. The Elements of Islay are bottled at natural strength, without chill-filtration and age statement, either as single cask or in small batches of up to 20 casks from a single distillery. The name of each bottling brings to mind Mendeleev’s Periodic Table, kind of chemical symbol of the distillery name followed by a number of subsequent release. Oc4 is the fourth expression of this most heavily peated single malt. The whisky was distilled in 2010 and matured in three ex-bourbon barrels until 2017.
 
Nose: lots of smoke, ashes, pine needles, aniseed, lemon grass, pepper, juniper berries and quite strong medicinal notes.
 
Palate: cloud of heavy peat smoke, iodine, white pepper, bunch of dried herbs, lemon peel, green apples, quince jelly and a burnt toast.
 
Finish: fairly long, smoky and peppery with touch of lemon peel.
