  1. Archer scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Probably the first Octomore that I really like. No youth to make out. It is advisable to give the dram a good sip of water. The whisky tolerates it and thanks it with a distinctly more flavor.

      Undiluted, he shows himself rather buttoned up and lets you only taste Black Forest ham and smoke.
      A small shot of water is already there to lure him out of reserve and bring down from his high 61.3% -Ross. For now he also reveals beautiful spicy notes and smoked pineapple as well as an even more intense greasy note. Acts older than six years.
    • Taste
      88 88
      With a splash of water: Still with good power on the tongue. Slightly dry, extremely intense and penetrating smoky note. So fast you can not see how the smoke spreads throughout the mouth. Machine oil, fine-herb, oregano, bay leaves. Espresso beans, dark chocolate. Seaweed.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Due to the pervasive smoky note long finish, where you have to honestly say that the roasted pineapple is still to be found. So it may be that it is not just due to the smoke that you can enjoy this whisky for a little while longer.

    Clear difference to the previous series by Octomore, lack of balance.

  7. LaddieNerd scored this whisky 87 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.

    100% barley of the Octomore Farm!
    • Nose
      88 88
      Complex smoky fruit notes. Alcohol is hardly noticeable. Malty sweetness combined with maritime spiciness.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Strong smoke explosion with sweet notes of a pineapple with hints of vanilla. In addition peppery seasoning with a salty wood note.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Long finish. Here the smoke remains very present, but also the spicy fruit note composition. The slight heat develops into a chilli note with dark chocolate. At the end a rubber note remains in the glass.
