    Had a sample of this. My first octomore and it is what I expect. A strong alcoholic medicinic smokey islay. What amazes me most is the almost oily texture, spreads very well all over my mouth.

    Quite expensive but really tasty.

      changes a little bit with water, first impression is very sweet, apricots, peaches, maracuja. Then the smoke sets in (coal. fish factory). Very well balanced on the nose gets smokier with a little bit of water.

      Clearly influenced by the sauterne cask. Starts of unexpectedly sweet but then it is followed by a lot of smoke. Smoked Salmon for me but also crisp bacon.

      Smoke smoke and lots of it, but still a little bit of sweetness and cough medicine. Also quite salty. Very complex. I like it!

    If you give it some time it will reward you. From palate to aftertaste it will take you on a salty and hot ride. Full review (in german): https://keinehalbendrinks.de/2019/11/14/zehn-punkt/

    • Nose
      Stone fruits like peach and nectarine at the forefront, with a whiff of smoked bacon and charred oak in the background. A touch salty seaweed as well. It gives of a rich, buttery, oily vibe.
    • Taste
      Thick and sticky mouthfeel, with notes of butterscotch and refined sugar. Nice interplay between the sweet notes and the barbecue smoke. Hints of leather and rubber, as well as iodine.
    • Finish
      A tad dry. A whiff of chocolate and nougat. Lingering smoke and tar.

    sweet, sweeter, sauternes, and that with 3rd-Fill, I like that, but that's probably also over for some
    • Nose
      starts slightly coal-like, flint, sweet, very slightly grassy, vanilla, gets sweeter and sweeter, cotton candy, sweet yellow fruit, some acidity, caramel, subtle smoke, very ashy, slightly nutty, a little wax, dessert cream
    • Taste
      intense, ashy, oily, sweet, cotton candy, more smoke here, sticky, vanilla, creamy, very sweet, caramel, a bit of nut
    • Finish
      sweet, slightly grape, the smoke is still present on the palate, dry mouth feel, slightly nutty, a hint of lime

  5. LaddieNerd scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Smoke, charred wood, smoked ham, metallic sweetness, with subtle dates wrapped in bacon, a bit of green apple with citrus notes, with light spicy cherry notes. Really exciting. Find the Octomore very complex.

    Nose:
    Have you ever tried freshly fried bacon on honey bread? I don't, but that's what comes to mind first when nosing! Oak seasoning and herbal notes follow. I also notice apricot jam, nuts and some ash. After adding water there is a hint of milk chocolate.

    Taste:
    The smoke is not as strong as expected, the Octomore is sweet and spicy with a little dry oak. A full and rather oily mouthfeel! There is still some chilliness. With a few drops of water, the smoke is reduced and citrus and herbal notes appear.

    Outlet:
    The finish is medium long and very creamy! Sweet and spicy aromas dominate here.
