    I’m not the biggest Octomore fan. I liken it to extreme IPA beers. It just seems unnecessary to me, it’s very hot, very aggressive, bold and punch you in the face flavors...which is ok - but to me it’s really out of balance; like an extremely bitter IPA.

    Octomore Edition 09.1 5 yo | 59.1% | 23 + 22 + 21 + 22 = 88pts
    N: Peat c with a strong smoky influence, rather one-sided, but strong and deep, stove soot, coal, vanilla, some dried fruit and salt, chymose a la lafroig notes, sea and algal stories.
    T: Sour-salted, then on the throat a little bit of sweetness, scalding tongue, vanilla, dried fruits, smoked foods and smoke, lemon pie with cream.
    F: Tart, slightly bitter, charred wood, smoked meat, vanilla.
    B: Assertive, straightforward, honest, slightly one-sided Octomor. In its directness it has a very dense, oily, pleasant body with distinct vanilla domination over this whole smoked-smoky theme.

    • Nose
      Very light, with plenty of agave, almost tequila-like. Or I should say mezcal, of course, my bad. First-fill casks apparently, yet this is pretty spirit forward. Balanced vegetal peat, with subtle smoke (yes, subtle), notes of banana. And if you give it time, there's a quite intense, yet lovely vanilla sweetness. Indeed, that's the first-fill cask influence right there.
    • Taste
      The arrival is quite brazen, but settles down. Chock full of thick, dense smoke, with whiffs of rubber and char, but there's a caramel sweetness as well, with plenty of vanilla and a whisper of lemon.
    • Finish
      Lingering peat smoke, licorice and a whisper of milk chocolate.

    N- Cowhide, earth, turn turf and malty sweet wash. Smoked fish, sun torched sea soaked mooring rope, musk and smoke, also the fine salts weave around the light and approachable peat. High abv with velvet and soft addictive aromatic of savoury sweet scents of scorched thyme and burnt rubber. (93/23)

    P- Bitter sweet, rubbery, husky with restrained spiciness, carbon and ashes with a hint of rose syrup. Well crafted with vats of multiple casks, high peat at high strength with harmony and approachable nuance. Some may grump on the drop of PPM, but does it matter? The PPM is just a production info and false wow factor, not an indication of the quality at all. (92/23)

    F- Medium-long, smooth and satisfying, caramelized nutty spread. As usual, short on depth. (87/21)

    B/B- 91/22

    Cr-2, Fr-2, Fl-1, Pt-4, Ft-1, Sp-1, Wd-2, Wn-2, Sc-2

    Weighted Rate- 89pt

    OCTOMORE
    DIALOGOS 09.1
    Octomore 09.1 questions the fundamentals of superior single malt Scotch. Confident in its five year age statement, our Head Distiller demonstrates how a focus on raw ingredients and considered distillation can definitively debunk the myth that older is better. Distilled in 2012 from 100% Scottish barley, the 09.1 is matured full-term in top-tier ex-American whisky casks
