  1. peatbogger scored this whisky 89 points Specialist

    I enjoy Octomore for several reasons. The extreme peat is an obvious one, but they have managed to keep the brand innovative and exciting with a variety of cask types for maturation. In most cases as full maturation and not just short finishes.
    This is very different from any other Octomore I've had, yet it is distinct Octomore, and most importantly; I really like it.
    • Nose

      This is a rather civilised nose for an Octomore.
      Peat smoke in abundance, but it is round and mellow for what we have come to expect.
      Salted meat with a sweet vanilla covering.
      Blood orange and grapefruit.
      A pinch of cinnamon and some very nice berry notes I can't define.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Potent cheek warming arrival.
      Sticky thick chocolate cream, again with a soft vanilla edge.
      Round sweet fruit, obviously from the bourbon casks, in nice harmony with salt and ashes from the distillate.

      This lingers for quite some time.
      Spicy, warm, sweet.

    This was a sample courtesy of Peatbogger.
    Another great Octomore and the standard seems to be still high which is good.
    Still a bit pricy for my liking but isn't everything.
    • Nose
      89 89
      With the heavily Peated ones i always get a well soiled horses stable and this is no exception but this time it's a racehorse's stable and he's been on the good stuff.
      At this strength it should be burning my nose hairs out but this is really soft and dare I say, gentle.
      There are light fruit notes with sea stones.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Again expecting a full on attack and to my surprise it's a very palatable slap on the cheek.
      It's very dry in the mouth and the more you keep It there the dryer it gets but this is good because it leaves a coating of flavours such as pear, lemon and white pepper.
    • Finish
      91 91
      Very long as you would expect and you can taste the wood and vanilla.
      Not adding water but drinking water after you have taken your last sip from the glass adds to the experience and creates more flavours so you get the best of both worlds.

    Unmistakably an Octomore, quite dry. The nose promises more sweetness than is present on the palate.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Strong peat smoke. Herbs, earthy and floral. In addition, a salty maritime note. Behind it lemon, pear and vanilla. Brown sugar and malt.

      The second nose, after you had the whisky in your mouth, was much sweeter with blossom honey.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Creamy, smooth appearance. Coal smoke, peat and ashes. Light fruits like pear and lemon. With vanilla, ginger and white pepper. Minimal sweetness.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Bourbon vanilla, ash, fading fruit notes and the oak are clearly noticeable. Is getting drier. Medium to long.

  5. Archer scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    After the very "interesting" nose, he got the curve again. With a pleasant and by no means brutal fruity smoky note, it can best show its qualities on the tongue.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Floral first impression and a hint of vegetable soup ... Anyway, there is leek, some fennel, celery. Slightly stinging with quite a clear solvent. Herbal smoke, as if juniper branches had also been burned.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Then a turn in 180 degrees on the tongue. The soup has been spooned out, the solvent has evaporated, pleasant peat smoke, smoked lemons, apple wedges studded with cloves dominate. Nutmeg and pepper, curry spice mix. Dark chocolate, tart caramel.
      He doesn't need any water.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Medium-long and dry, the continuation or development of the taste.

  6. gossm01 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    It is of medium viscosity and its bouquet is of relatively strong intensity. I have aromas of dry peat smoke, honey sweetness, maritime notes, citrus fruit, malt and vanilla. Moderately complex. A good balance between sweetness and dryness in terms of taste. The alcohol is well integrated and he has a moderate body.
