- Creme brulee on fire.
Poured over the fat from a pan that has been simmering bacon for too long.
Fleur de Sel stalagmites grow on the back of the tongue.
The best toffifee you have ever tasted.
The mouth becomes a dry sauna in which the hot wood makes the tongue sweat.
After 5 minutes you ask yourself whether you have already swallowed or whether the finish is really that long.
They can ask for the price because there is nothing like it anywhere else.
(First dram from freshly opened Bouteille)
- Oh my god, so much honey. I’ve never encountered waxy honey notes like these in an Octomore before. Amazingly creamy and tropical. The peat is definitely mellowed a bit. It honestly seems like some kind of Octomore-Bowmore hybrid, which sounds like some kind of magical dream whisky to me. Outstanding, surpassed my expectations.
Nose: Cold extinguished bonfire and sea-soaked shale beach. Smoked salted fish, seaweed, light soy sauce, and pickled ginger. Loads of creamy vanilla. Exotic flowers, honey, basil, and a bit of camphor. Coconuts on the beach, pineapple juice, and banana cream pie (emphasis on the cream). A dusting of nutmeg and cinnamon. My bubbie’s chicken soup (she uses parsnips). Sesame oil and some walnut wood.
Palate: Medium-thick texture. Matcha, vanilla, lemongrass, and spun sugar on the arrival. Very long development. Rich honeycomb builds slowly, with charred chashu pork slices, vanilla crème, soft caramels, and mouthwatering pineapple. Sweet pine needles, candied flowers, maple syrup, and lime candies. Underneath it all is earthy, medicinal peat smoke. Slightly chalky and briny. Some aged parmesan cheese.
Finish: Long and dripping with honey. Honeycomb ice cream in a waffle cone. Damp bramble bushes. Cream-drenched tropical fruit, blueberry-basil gelato, and hot chocolate with marshmallows. More green tea.
- It has an oily viscosity and an intense bouquet. I have aromas of intense marine peat smoke, citrus fruit, honey sweetness, vanilla and hay. Moderately complex. A good balance between sweetness and dryness in terms of taste. The alcohol is relatively well integrated and it has a heavy body.
- Is already quite tasty, reminds in places of a Laphroaig 10 CS, one of the last batches. But then he lacks something to reach his class, at least once an adequate exit.
Cold smoke with a hint of lemon. Red currants and strawberries await in the background, as well as vanilla ice cream and forest honey. Sour lemon drops, warm tar paper, seaweed. Pepper and some paprika spice.
Start with the sour lemon drops from the nose. Quite heavy smoke, greasy and warming. Green apple, young twigs, warm engine oil, a freshly tarred road.
Just as medium-long finish if you disregard the long-lasting smoky note. Lemon peel, caramel, vanilla.
- Interesting dram with a fairly unique character. Not as peaty as one might have guessed but very tasty even for a peat enthusiast. The whisky definitely benefits from some time in the glass/bottle to open up.
Horse maure, blue berries, sea spray and mulled wine.
Dry coffee smoke, toffee, a hint of wine influence and farmyard.
Oak with a slightly bitter dry long finish
- Yes! This one is for the big screen. I don't understand how you can't like it. Complex and well matured. I'm looking forward to the first 20 year old Octomore. Will that ever exist? Leave out any water. It only adds a few pencil shavings. Full review (german): https://keinehalbendrinks.de/2020/10/12/these-go-to-eleven/
