  1. Jackson05 scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    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.

  3. LaddieNerd scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Tasted in a row with the 9.3, 10.1, 10.3 and 10.4 at the online octomore tasting meets heavy metal with brand ambassador Ewald Stromer.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Sweet smoke with ham and notes of vanilla. In addition candied apple rings with subtle wood.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Sweetness remains. Smoked ham with liquorice and here too vanilla, with some fudge and coffee.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Long finish, with a slightly metallic smoke note to the smoke.

  5. EvilAFI scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Kinda disappointing for a Octomore, the light peat levels are nice, but there isn’t much underneath worthy of the lightness. It’s shiny and bright not the best malt underneath to showcase.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Light peat smoke, nougat, nutty, chlorine pool, light icing sugar
    • Taste
      87 87
      Peat, sweet barley, icing sugar, white pepper, green pepper
    • Finish
      87 87
      Warm, salty, roasted peanut,

  7. Joint86 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    Well balanced whisky with recognizable Octomore character
    • Nose
      Fire, bonfire, malt acidity, varnish
    • Taste
      The aroma continues, a little sea is added
    • Finish
      Long, astringent, woody

  9. larswehmeier scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Unfortunately a little disappointing and in a direct comparison extremely similar to 10.3, but due to the less pronounced citrus fruits and the missing herbal note, but clearly inferior and less exciting.

    A rock-solid Octomore - but unfortunately not anymore either.
