Octomore 2002 Futures Description

The Octomore ‘Futures’ was the first release from Bruichladdich's cult favourite mega-peated spirit. Upon its release, it was the most heavily peated whisky produced in the world at 80.5ppm - though Octomore now goes higher than 200ppm! This rare 5 year old Islay single malt was distilled at Bruichladdich on the 16th October 2002 and bottled in April 2008 under the Octomore label. Matured exclusively in Buffalo Trace Bourbon casks, this is one of an estimated 9600 bottles.

Each winner of a bottle from Doddie's auction will receive two complimentary Glencairn glasses, branded with the My Name'5 Doddie Foundation logo (pictured on homepage)!

This bottle has been personally donated by a private individual

Doddie Weir OBE is one of rugby’s most recognizable personalities. He earned 61 caps for Scotland during a successful playing career.

Doddie is now facing his biggest challenge. In June 2017 the Scot revealed he was suffering from Motor Neuron Disease. From the outset, Doddie has been driven to help fellow sufferers and seek ways to further research into this, as yet, incurable disease.

In November 2017 Doddie and his Trustees launched the registered charity My Name’5 Doddie Foundation. Its aims are simple: to raise funds to aid research into the causes of Motor Neuron Disease and investigate potential cures; to make grants to individuals suffering from MND, to enable them to live as fulfilled a life as possible.
