    Was my last malt during a whisky festival, just to ensure my palate was indeed destroyed. I’m not an octomore fan in general, but I thought it was less complex and more astringent than other versions I’ve had. Not for me.

    That's definitely not enough, what the 10.1 delivers here. Nice to know the barley used, but maybe a few more years would have worked better.
    • Nose
      82 82
      Slight biting smoke, at least at the beginning. You should give it some time and time for yourself.
      Even if he is more comfortable after some time, he shows himself still quite aggressive, ready to jump - where will show.
      Green apple, freshly mown grass, green branches, fresh savoy cabbage leaves. The nose says: young vegetables. Every now and then alcohol flashes through. A little vanilla.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Strong start, dry from the beginning. Cold, ashen peat smoke. Green apples, pear wedges. Somewhat grassy and slightly grainy. Malt, caramel - and then they left him.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Apart from the longer-lasting smoke, the finish is short, spicy and with a slight sweetness of unripe apples.

    Peaty whisky but not that peaty.
    Rather complex for his young age.
    Not marked by the barrel. Rather maritime.

    A good whisky, but you can find similar things for a lot less.

    Super smoky experiment from Bruichladdich.
    There is no need to look for complexity in it, there is none. As well as no puffs of smoke expected from the stated PPMs. It's about something else ...
    Five-year alcohols are distinguished by a confident dryness, combined with the basic characteristics of "oak" aging. Fresh aroma, in tandem with an enveloping taste, contain citrus peels, shades of raw wood, mixed with dry sawdust, cinnamon spice, warmth of fresh baked goods and a little perfumery. All this ends with a long finish. The smoke in it is present all the way, but does not clog the receptors, overshadowing everything else. High phenolic content, with a dry, moderate sillage similar to a handful of fumigated malt.
    Conclusion: Not complicated, but quite interesting whisky.

      dry and sweet

  9. Lukas_Kiene scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Very pleasant, light and flattering representative of the Octomore range. The potential of this malt is only revealed by adding a little water.

    Without water: light, with a nice pleasant smoke, vanilla and citrus

    With water: The smoke becomes much stronger, the whisky turns into much more maritime and 'dirtier' aromas. Much stronger and rougher.

    Very nice to drink and exciting with the addition of water, but overall one of the 'lightest' Octomore bottlings. The climb to 3/10 is enormous.

  10. maltandgrains scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Water really heightens the taste in this, but not for the better I think. It comes out of an otherwise good balance.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Very light nose. Not in any way week, but there's no bite, despite the high ABV. Honey and vanilla immediately beneath the peat. Salt and seaweed. Slightly medicinal.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Fierce and strong. Not explosive, but not a slow entry from the peat either. Oaky bitterness, spices. Honey and vanilla.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Long, mostly woody finish. Undertones of rubber.
