Our first exclusive Single Cask Single Malt Scotch Whisky. We are very excited to present this historic release bearing our company name. Limit 1 per customer
We bought a part share in a Caol Ila 12yo Single Cask which was previously aged in an ex-bourbon Barrel. At our request The Single Cask re-racked the whisky into a first fill 50lt Oloroso Sherry Cask.
Octave has yielded only 60 bottles at 58.4%abv
Caol Ila is a classic peaty/smoky Islay whisky which complements well with maturation in sherry cask.
Eight Pm founder Ash Parmar believes peaty drams aged/finished in quality sherry casks is a marriage made in heaven.
$10 from each bottle will be donated to Epilepsy New Zealand , in memory of a loved one from ash's family. Please look up amazing work Epilepsy New Zealand does and how they support our community.

CAOL ILA BACKGROUND
Caol Ila is the silent assassin of Islay; there is peat in this whisky, but it sneaks up on you. With less prominent smoke than some of its Islay neighbours, everything about Caol Ila whisky is different. From it’s mashing, fermentation regime, stills and the cut points; it’s unique. Its often the quiet ones who surprise us the most.
This single malt whisky is the perfect example of that. It captures both the coastal and land elements of Islay, with balanced notes to take your mind straight to this charismatic island. A lovely whisky, and a must try.
( Please note as this will trigger a lot of work for team we will be sending these out from 6th July Onward )
