Whisky Reviews for Octomore Batch 1 TBWC
3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.70 points
- I little disappointing as I generally really enjoy Octomore - this one is over-priced and I don't think the finish brings anything too it. Still a good dram - but at £150 per 500mls a bit steep.
- My first Octomore and i like it.
Smoke but not as dominant as i expected. Sherry and malt, some alcohol. Liquid smoke, sea, red berries -rasberries?
Hello! very powerful smoke on the palate, burnt ash, that alomst sour notes from a fire. The sweet fruits, dry chilli.
Sweet smoke and a little pepper
The majority of Boutique-y’s whisky stock comes from private collectors like this one. Bruichladdich sold lots of casks to private investors and enthusiasts at the turn of the century. This is TBWC’s first batch and is made up from two wine cask-matured [or finished?] Octomore’s - Tempranillo & Pauillac.
N: Vegetal diesel oil, but different from the unpleasant & distracting fumes pumping out from our vessel or the one alongside. Also, I get oysters on toast, samphire and fruits galore, all within a coastal vegetal context.
T: A hilly journey with lots of pleasing taste centres. Sweet complex herbal ice cream all sorts,…
F: Herbal sweet vanilla Cornetto finish.
C: Surprisingly this doesn’t require any water, but then it’s not as strong as many official Octomore’s. Scores 88 easily.
