The first release of Octomore took place in 2008. Since then, five years seems to be considered the optimum age for these extraordinary bottlings - the whisky's relative youth allows for maximum expression of the massive phenols. 06.2 was a travel retail exclusive, finished in Limousin Oak which previously held ‘one of the world’s great Eaux de Vie. Peated to 167 ppm, 18,000 bottles were produced. Originally on the market circa 2013 bottled at 58.2% ABV.
