- Peat swamp, white fruit, coal and vanilla, intense mouth, good finish.
Surprisingly light and subtle with notes of barley husks, wood smoke and a touch of sour beer, but also liquorice root. After a little while apple peel, vanilla custard and almond paste take over and don't let go of the wheel.
Powerful stuff. The smoke certainly plays more a leading role here. Touches of sea shells, sweet barley, a whiff of lime, as well as cloves and chili pepper.
Big notes of peat, as well as rubber. Ending on a sweeter note. Demerara sugar. Long.
- TASTING NOTES BY BRUICHLADDICH
CHARACTER – Lithe, supple, powerfully confident and a dram more than the sum of its parts. Slow trickle distillation is the hallmark of this muscular, oily spirit.
AROMA – Vanilla led, caramel, hints of smoke but tamed back. candied apple, gooseberry and marzipan.
TASTE – Soft yet powerful and warming on the palate, peppery, barley sugar, smokey – dried earth and hints of rubber. Warm sand, sweetness of charred oak and pineapple.
FINISH – Sweetness from tablet/fudge and a strong peat smoke and cold marine air combination.
COLOUR – Pale golden.
- Kept in the Octomore Masterclass during the Feis Ile 2019.
Since I had better .1 Octomore
Superficial vanilla, creamy, neat dry smoke, slightly acid, unripe apple, relatively young on the nose, a touch of cinnamon
humming, neat smoke, wild, something burns, then vanilla, light sweetness, also here seasoning, towards cinnamon
The smoke lasts forever, green apple comes back from behind, then creamy, long lasting
