  1. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Kept in the Octomore Masterclass during the Feis Ile 2019.
    • Nose
      worn sneaker, smoke yes, but not too strong, warmed up, the cinnamon, which I expected, quite spicy, for three years not too spirited
    • Taste
      Wow, the mouth is busy, dry, Big Red bubble gum !!!, violently, yes you notice the youth, wow, that's not easy, yes, smoke and a lot, but the rest is so overwhelming
    • Finish
      Heckraus surprisingly short in comparison to other Octomore, also the cinnamon subsides, but is still the longest since

    • Nose
      Whiffs of resin and rubber are the first aromas to stand out, followed by a deep and rich note of bonfire, unlike I've ever experienced in a whisky before. Wood varnish and tobacco leave their impression too, and this has a subtle farmy quality to it as well. Interesting, to say the least. Markedly different than the other three Octomore 10s, let alone other whiskies out there.
    • Taste
      Spicy arrival with notes of pepper, cloves and nutmeg. Fairly dry as well. More peaty than smoky, the inverted experience of the nose, although that bonfire note does peak through on the palate every once in a while. A touch of shoe polish as well.
    • Finish
      Long, dry and spicy, but also with tobacco and peat.

  3. schengel10 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A certainly very successful, incredibly intense and also very good whisky.
    Intense smoke, high percentages and aroma loads are a pound - moreover, it is not very complex (from where too).
    And about 155.00 € despite the beautiful "tin can" are pretty outrageous - it is just 3 years old and may just call itself "whisky" !!!

      Smoky, salty, woody notes. With smoked ham. On the nose I actually have a light grass note of the freshly cut variety. In the background the farm, which you can find regularly at Bruichladdich.

  9. waal scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Strong smoke tries to hide the undeniable youth, sweet, intense dark honey, chocolate, strong spicy wood, lemon, sea salt, ashtray, methylated spirit, sour apples, good for three years but not very complex

    Mouth: strongly phenolic, ash, strong, a lot of vanilla, astringent, lemon and a lot of cinnamon, sweet and juicy, present, in the finish violent spices (pepper, chilli, cinnamon), oily, the wood is omnipresent, intense, heavily burned-out barrel with perfect smoky base product

    Conclusion: a very intense experience. For me personally, the burnt-out barrel in combination with the relatively strong smoke is too much of a good thing. The New Make was certainly perfect, but somehow it has to be possible to sell three-year malt for around EUR 150. Then we throw in a lot of peat and afterwards the burned out barrel has to contribute to it so that we can bring the most intense stuff to the people in the shortest possible time. Shoot cannons at sparrows ...
