    This is the hottest Octomore I've had so far. Not so much on the nose but on the palate. My guess is the higher ppms somehow buries the heat (or masks it). On this one the high abv really shows itself. Which is not too hot, just that you notice it, and (for me) it's not a bad thing. Just different.

    My first Octomore and such a wonderful start.
    At first I was skeptical whether I would taste anything other than smoke from the whisky, but it is so complex and well balanced and the smoke is perfectly integrated with a subtle sweetness and fruitiness.
    Really great.

      At first smoke and sweet peat but pleasantly not intrusive, then a variety of aromas come to the fore, vanilla sweetness / malt sweetness, citrus fruit, smoked wood, smoked bacon, slightly salty, leather

      At the beginning the smoke and sweet peat taste is very present, but this is pushed back into the background and gives way to a pleasant sweetness of vanilla and slightly burnt caramel then the "older" aromas immediately come to the fore, which are always from the smoke / peat and the sweet, old smoked wood, leather, heavily smoked bacon, dark chocolate, citrus fruit, sea salt.
      A pleasant oily consistency.
    • Finish
      93 93
      Dry woody finish in a positive sense.

      With smoke, peat, leather and then a little bit of dark chocolate with constant accompaniment of malt and vanilla, the Octomore 10.3 says goodbye in the mouth.
