  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

  3. Malthead19 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    - already one of the better representatives of the Octomore series,
    - for just 3 years of maturity a great aroma, very good barrels
    - very well done masterpiece
    • Nose
      clearly smoky note (but very pleasantly integrated), peat, herbs, surprisingly complex
    • Taste
      oW: massive, powerful, almost too sharp;

      mW: significantly better, more pleasant, the herbal aromas come out more clearly (thyme, rosemary), aromatic smoke, not this massive, cold ash smoke
    • Finish
      medium smoky departure;
      longer smoother reverberation

  4. thijs100 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    • 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.

  5. gossm01 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    It has a relatively oily viscosity and its bouquet is of relatively strong intensity. I have aromas of intense peat smoke, toffee, malty sweetness, vanilla, pipe tobacco, honey sweetness? Citrus fruit, ash and bacon. Moderately complex. A good balance between sweetness and dryness in terms of taste. He has clearly noticeable alcohol and a relatively heavy body.
