This Octomore is fun! He is complex and comes with a good portion of various sweet flavors around the corner. The 10 years put the whole thing on the crown. Very clear recommendation from my side. A similarity to the OBA Concept exists.
Dark Earl Gray with a sting that goes reddish.
Very sweet, stuffy, concentrated Octomore smoke, behind it are directly blueberry pancakes, which then transform into waffles with hot cherries. Some salt and shoe polish. The alcohol is, as always with Bruichladdich, beautifully integrated. After 15 minutes, the oak comes to light. The nose is already a lot of fun, there is definitely more to discover here.
Powerful, a flavor explosion in the mouth. Nevertheless, to drink very well undiluted. On the tongue finally show the 10 years of maturation. First, one wonders about the lack of sweetness, but after a few seconds, at the latest when swallowing, the wood gives way to the sweet cargo.
Dark berries, salt, licorice. Then it gets drier and slower. Far later you get something like menthol and tobacco.
The finish is of course long and gives you a long time pleasure.
