  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.

    A highlight on the nose, the rest lacks a bit of Octomore power. Not bad at all, but you might wish for more than that tasting the heavily peated style of Bruichladdich. Full review (in german): https://keinehalbendrinks.de/2019/11/14/zehn-punkt/

  4. nhuber scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Underwhelming for a Octomore, also with water... Save your money for another one...like the 10.3

  5. Stanzeflasche scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Marsh peat, white fruit, charcoal, very delicate vanilla, fresh mint. It's very balanced. White plums, Mirabelle plums, crushed vanilla beans. Mustard seeds. Intense palate, very oily, argan nuts, sweet olives. Final quite violent, which resonates in the mouth, fresh. Sage, zucchini flower. Very ample, quite vegetal.

  6. thijs100 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      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.
    • Taste
      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.
    • Finish
      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.
