  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    nose:
    meat peat, bacon, citrus fruits on the lemon with its zest, sweet sensation, a little iodine, the return of the stable is emerging, then fruit on the mirabelle plums and well-cooked peaches, even candied,
    the wood in return, and the peat again
    mouth:
    wet hay, vegetal and medicinal, with sea spray and seaweed near a fishing port!
    then the peppery spices, intense chilli, a little red fruits on the dried raspberry, it stings, not the alcohol, the spicy spice, like a fire; there is bitterness that emerges, the peat mixes with the cloud of dry smoke
    peat return, apricot kernel, sweet sensation
    final:
    oaky, more round at the end, a little on candied fruit stones in brandy, frank smoke that lasts!

    A really complex delicious octomore!
    • Nose
      Smoke, ham, sweetness in the direction of pineapple with honey, subtle metallic notes combined with hazelnuts and dark chocolate.
    • Taste
      Rauch, Chilli. Wood with nutty notes. Slightly malty grain notes. Here too, a little honey with hints of green apples and citrus fruits.
    • Finish
      A long finish with a mixture of smoke, spice, salt, pepper at the end leaves a sparkling chilli note on the tongue. Hints of licorice and a little tobacco.
