Dette er anden gang at Bruichladdich aftapper en 4 x destilleret Octomore. Den er aftappet ved 70% og er den stærkeste aftapning til dato fra Bruichladdich. Det er også 1% højere end styrken de normalt ligger new make på fad ved.
Concept_0.2 har ligget på en kombination af bourboun, sherry og vin fade i 10 år inden aftapning. New make som kommer på fadene har en alkohol styrke på 89% og har en PPM på 162.
Der er kommet 3000 flasker (500ml) af denne aftapning til en pris af £150

Noter (Bruichladdich):

Colour – Butterscotch.

Nose – Airy and light, banana milkshake, vanilla and tobacco leaf, light praline and coconut. Lemon and grapefruit zest with geranium. With a drop of water, hints of sultana and barley flour come through, then melon and pear with marzipan. Just a whisper of char and even less peat smoke.

Taste – A delicate texture at 70% and a warming sensation crosses the palate, a gentle chilli pepper heat. A hint of char from the wood and resinous sweetness, lemon and honey, and a hint of cloves. A splash of water calms the heat and opens the fruit, mango, melon and marzipan. Tablet, syrup, and vanilla, and, again, the barley flour with ground ginger come through after opening.

Finish – On the finish, there is a little aniseed, a gentle dryness and just the idea of peat smoke. A dry, almost smoked, coconut note fades into a dark fruit, raisin tone. At the very end comes peat smoke, just a little but as ever the power of the Octomore smoke even after four distillations and 10 years cannot be tamed.

Character – Only at Bruichladdich would this be attempted. Quadruple distillation of super heavily peated spirit – discovery of places unknown.
