    [September, 2018] Ooh, an extremely peated malt from a virgin oak cask - both are characteristics I do not like, usually. But I am brave and try this sample (thanks, VVP)...

    ...and it clearly confirms my suspicions. This is an extremely two-dimensional spirit with extreme spikes towards a peaty smokiness and agressive woodiness. Whoever loves these spikes might enjoy such a combo very much, to me it is rather disgusting (hey, where is the whisky in this mix?). Sorry, but my taste is simply different (and you know: There is no accounting for taste!)...
    • Nose
      83 83
      The colour is burnished and the nose offers what could be expected: peat and wood. The distillate itself is hidden behind these curtains of impressive flavours so it is hard to detect any aromas of the spirit itself (are there any at all?). Not the kind of nose I appreciate...
    • Taste
      83 83
      The taste is bitter from all the wooden and extreme ashy peat flavours but after some chewing I detect barley sugars, hooray! Is there anything else? Maybe, but my taste buds are blocked by the heavy spikes of the two dominant flavours - so they are unable to recognise more subtle ones (if there are any at all). Some water turns the nose punchier and the taste even more ashy-bitter. A further reduction releases additional barley sugars but still they cannot compete with the woods and smoke. This one is for lovers of extreme spirits only. Is this whisky? By definition: yes - according to my taste buds: no!
    • Finish

      The dram arrives mighty in the mouth with a mighty drying-astringent feeling from all the tannins and ashes. It is like licking in a wooden ashtray - sorry, I do not like this. The finish is long and sweeter (barley sugars only) but still mainly a two-dimensional peat-wood affair. Guess what...

    This was rated 2 years ago, but to update my rating from 93 to 92 I had to delete my original rating completely and re-rate from scratch.

    Upon opening the bottle and letting it stand for 30min before my first sip, I was with Serge on the oakyness and thought it was only ok. But on subsequent drams, the oak reseeds and is a wallop of dark cherry's with smoke in the background.

    Now 6 weeks later with the bottle one third full and the oxidization taking full effect, I've just experienced the most amazing complex smoke black cherry note I never thought existed! Delicious!

    This bottle is an amazing ride that I would recommend highly to anyone that is into Octomores. You just need to be patient with this one and as with most of the other Octomores, allow them to evolve. And you will not be disappointed!

    No water needed with this one. I wouldn't dare!

    An incredible trip, to say the least!

    Edit February 2019; This is no longer to my liking the way it used to be when I had my first bottle over two years ago. My palate has changed in the last two in a half years and over that time I've eliminated several bottles from my collection that have disappointed me as I've become more discerning and less tolerant of sulphur laden and spiked infused releases. This Octomore 7.4 is now my least favourite, of all my Octomore's as this one is a spiked infused releases that is very disjointed, harsh, very sharply-wood driven, not balanced and is a far cry in both quality and enjoyment from all my other Octomore's. Re-rate this to a 86 from a 92.

    I find tasting whisky is like listening to music, there are many different types of music that appeal to many different people. However, if you learn to have a keen ear and enjoy more challenging, dynamic and complex music, and at the same time are less impressed with gimmicky and one dimensional pieces of music you become more discerning and less susceptible one hit wonders and tend to want more than a basic rush of high octane. In your glass.

    Amazingly mild for the alcohol content. The price-performance ratio is, as with all Octomores unfortunately unacceptable
    • Nose
      Leather and wood, sweet smoke, otherwise initially very closed, fried bacon, caramel-malt beer, sourdough
    • Taste
      Very sweet and spicy, opulent smoke, clove and cinnamon, full-bodied and present, but again the sourish touch, which I find unpleasant
    • Finish
      Very long smoke, surprisingly soft and gentle, in smoking the oak spicy comes out

  5. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    First rather surprising nose with little peat and ... cognac? Lemon, burnt wood, some chocolate. Some softness settles. Over time, vanilla typical of a bourbon emerges and settles by strengthening the chocolate. With water, more fruits! A touch of banana? Wood, spices evoking a rye.In the mouth, lively and round, not aggressive. Well spiced. Peat is not so strong at the first sip. The following are much more muscular! The water softens a bit. The nose is certainly the best of all the Octomore I've tasted. (Ten)

    Enthusiasm 4/5

  6. grinface scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Well, I was a little worried that vanilla would dominate. It is more the wood itself and the dryness with which the virgin oak leaves its mark. Some people didn't like that at all in their reviews of this Octomore. I can get used to it very well today.

    Octomore 7.4. At Imperial Bar, Glasgow, March 2019. Aroma is woody - almost sherried-seeming, but apparently it's virgin oak used - quite sherry, cherry notes and coconut. Taste is huge rounded and intense but not brutal in this case. Lovely peat influence really. It's a little plasticky - some hair spray and perfume ... very oaky. Interesting but not blowing me away considering. Not too much complexity. Plasticky and touch of cherry. Light bitterness in the finish. I wonder if there's caramel in this - the colour is dark and there's an odd bitterness, but I guess all that could be put down to wood too. Very interesting and I'm glad to try it but not worth the money a bottle would set me back. So oaky like an over-oaked Greek wine or something. I paid £4.10 for a standard 35ml Scottish size dram, which is great value given the Octomore hype and almost seems like a mistake (the prices are great here and it's hard to tell), but in saying that the price is probably par for the course in terms of enjoyment/quality. 3.45/82

    My least favourite Octomore at this point. That said, still lots better than many other peated malts out there. Typical Octomore peat, but the sharpness is too heavy handed thanks to the Virgin Oak. Not sure the extra couple years of aging are doing it any favours either.

    An aside - I have taken to blending this with PC10 (a great entry level malt in its own right) and the sum is better than it’s parts. Just a few drops of this added to a dram of PC10 pulls the PC10 up into ~90 point territory imo.

    Tried this in a pub assuming it was the 7.1. Literally blown away with the 61% alc content. Very unique taste and a pleasure to experience. Bought a bottle for collection and will save for special occasion. Found it different to other octomore as most I’ve had are 5 year old.

    This Octomore has everything I expect from an Octomore. Sweet and intense peat, a harmoniously integrated high alcohol content and a great finish. I like it very much!
    • Nose
      Pleasant peat mixes on the first nosing with extremely greasy notes. Barbecue sauce drips on spicy bacon, light and dark berries end in a sweet hint of vanilla. A wonderful peat and bacon note dominates the nose, sour berries and cherries mix with a spicy woody aroma. The 61.2% alcohol content is harmoniously integrated, but in the course of nosing stronger and more intense.
    • Taste
      Bitter wood aromas and campfire romanticism immediately strike the palate. An intensive sharpness heats up the glowing, bacon drips oily into cold ashes, extremely spicy wood becomes sharp. Pepper and a pinch of salt explode on the palate, leather flavors and sweet dried berries come to light.
    • Finish
      Bacon and smoky notes, spicy wood and sweet vanilla mix with some peat and cold ash in the course of the departure. The leather aromas sound as lightness fades away slowly. Greasy sweetness and a hint of fruit are long remembered.

    A dense, dull and uncompromising affair that sucks you nicely. It's a good and unique, real blow to the taste buds, but the price is just scary ..
    • Nose
      Without water: very dense and heavy and dull scent - woodiness, old furniture, polish for furniture, perhaps a little dark dried fruit, grass, chocolate biscuits and light alcohol, which certainly does not match the given strength, it is all rounded, said he would not have more than 50%
      With water: smoke starts to grow, and at the same time intensifies the dullness of the old bum and skin
    • Taste
      The taste is woody, varnish, cream, citrus fruit, a great dose of smoke from the fireplace, spices and alcohol. It is very dense but smooth at the same time.
    • Finish
      In reverberation again smoke, dullness, skin, burned wood and alcohol

    first thoughts were that this will
    not score well because of the petrol (which i
    hate). but after giving it more time the petrol was actually complementing the
    roasted sugar sweetness and the fresh grassy tones of the oak

    I love the octomore range. Some of my favourite drams here. But it took me a while to come to grips with this malt. It definitely benefits from opening up and time in the bottle. Excellent balance between toasted oak notes and traditional octomore notes. 
    • Nose
      Balanced. Sweet bourbon notes of toasted oak, cherry, dark honey, and sweet peat. 
    • Taste
      Balanced again. The peat and toasted oak notes are in harmony. Very flavourful and rich. 
    • Finish
      Long spicy-sweet finish underscored by sweet peat.

  32. EarlMobile scored this whisky 82 points Expert Junior

    At least one Octomore, which settles in comparison to its predecessors. This tastes rounder than the previous ones. Nice to smoke, bacon and barbecue with a little sweetness (similar to a sweet & smoke barbecue sauce). Not bad, but I find no more flavors in the whisky and the aftertaste is also gone again.

  33. vmu scored this whisky 81 points Member Senior

    First of all, I regret it - as with all other Octomore versions - NOT to have bought me this whisky. There will certainly be some nice evenings with it. It can even be enjoyed on balmy summer evenings on the balcony. As far as lethargy in the nose is concerned, he reminds me of old bakery houses or old farmhouse parlors, which unfortunately are only found in open-air museums today. Memories of my grandparents come to life, proving once again the closeness of our sense of smell to the limbic system that controls our emotions and emotional memories.
    • Nose
      The smoke is clearly present but in my opinion not as clear as in other Octomore versions. Vanilla flavors quickly join the smoke, but they are clearly masked by notes reminiscent of leather. Both together cover a maltiness that is present in the nose, but is pushed into the background by the stronger leather tones. Citrus flavors also play a role, but compared to its predecessor 7.3 only very subordinate.
    • Taste
      On the tongue, the sweet vanilla tones gain the upper hand initially, but are very quickly covered by the Lossigkeit, which is more reminiscent of a Sherryfassagagagerten whisky, covered, The smoke is there, but in my opinion much weaker than in all previous versions of Octomore, starting at The Beast to the 6.1 - where I would like to exclude the Octomores with higher ppm number. After a while, a light malt sweetness comes in, but as in the nose it plays a minor role.
    • Finish
      In the finish, the smoke prevails, accompanied by vanilla sweetness. But unfortunately he is not very prevalent. The impression of this whisky is quickly gone - at least I felt so.

    Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:

    Octomore 7 yo 2008/2016 '07.4' (61.2%, OB, virgin oak, 12,000 bottles)  167 ppm smoke in the barley, and some virgin French oak from Allier - albeit not entirely, apparently. It's too complicated. Now what could go wrong? Colour: amber. Virgin oak indeed. Nose: it's the first Octomore that's so entirely 'craft', and indeed you could think this was made in Texas or in California. Starts with a very spicy oak, with plenty of ginger, green pepper, and caraway, and gets then progressively smoky, in a surprisingly smooth way. Fumes, new tyres, bitter oranges, and really a lot of myrtle. Didn't the oak overpower the bombastic peat? The jury's still out. With water: new planks, ginger, curry, cinnamon, leaven, bread dough, rubber. Mouth (neat): creamy and extremely oaky. Curry and honey coated fried bacon, cinnamon mints, salty fudge, rubber... Really not too sure. With water: no, the oak bites you. I think the Americans do it better. Finish: long, gingery, oddly sweet. Cheap lapsang souchong. Comments: lacks definition and 'a sense of the place' as they now say in the industry. So many Octomores have been much better in my book! Well, all of them - not to mention the Port Charlottes. I wouldn't swap one bottle of 7.3 (WF 91) for ten cases of this rather wacky 7.4. Quick, 7.5... SGP:467 - 70 points.

    http://kaypingers-whiskyblog.de/frontend/fullarticle.php?id=199 Color: rust red
    Nose: wet paperboard soaked in lemon juice, with orange, leather, vanilla, smoke and peaty lime extract. Little spice and hardly any salt! Then some iodine, BBQ and orange peels - dull and actually relatively unspectacular.
    Taste: Sweet caramel and a lot of salty spice. Orange extract, smoky peat, cayenne pepper and sticky, pampy-sweet honey. Woody and dry with still full salinity.
    Finish: Long, but also far away from what you want to have on the finish. Hot and bitter-smoky - with dry ashes, coal dust and burned peat.
    Remark: With minimal mouth filling still okay, then it works - otherwise it will be oblique!

    Compared to the Virgin Oak Barrel, which was tasted in the Warehouse Tasting at Bruichladdich in summer / autumn 2015, this mix is ​​unfortunately a bitter disappointment. Even compared to other Octomores he can not really shine. Too much acidity, too short a finish, pure Vigin Oak ripening might have been more appropriate. Nevertheless a very good malt with sensational well integrated alcohol and a very interesting nose.
    • Nose
      Tender smoke and cowshed right at the beginning, otherwise it is first closed properly. The smoky note is slowly getting stronger, it looks quite ashy. Behind it come warm caramel and a few citrus notes. The alcohol is well integrated as usual. Later, salty bacon and some iodine are added. The cowshed looks so warm that you think you can take the cow dung in your hand. Heat pushes the country air into the background and intensifies citrus notes and bacon. Light fruits are added and the smoke is even stronger. Spices are also to be found now, thyme and marjoram. The nose is now very round.
    • Taste
      Very sweet, almost sticky onset. Dark honey, malt, definitely cinnamon and some salt. A lot of eucalyptus is present and now in the nose. The palate is also noticeable acidity.
    • Finish
      The finish is surprisingly very short, the smoke does not extend the finish significantly. The most noticeable here is the eucalyptus, acidity and sweet notes are gone very quickly.

    A very nice composition! It was a wise choice to keep the Virgin Oak share relatively low, as this does not kill the cinnamon spice and the whisky now has a creamy sweet counterpart.
    • Nose
      The smoke is clearly noticeable in the nose, but as with most Octomores by far as strong as one would expect, the smoke is a bit greasy, sweet malt is added, vanilla, generally a very rich and creamy nose, almost tangible , very spicy and sour, always the bacon, some salt and I also find chocolate, roasted coffee and damp tobacco, surprisingly I find no clear cinnamon note (which I would have expected as a dominant note, after I was at Warehousetasting at Laddie the 7yo Virgin Oak Octomore from the barrel could try), as Steve has underlined with its summary already here is the Bourbonfassreifung the dominant smell generator, in the moment where I have finished the sentence, I think now but cinnamon
    • Taste
      first sweet, creamy, chocolate, vanilla and malt, then a lot of oak, spice, slightly spicy, and after initial restraint and the smoke is fully there, the cinnamon comes only after the first sip in the aftertaste, but then he is present, including the roasted coffee is to be found in the mouth, sour fruit, the second sip is also the Big Red bubble gum feeling, as I had at warehousetasting
    • Finish
      behind right cinnamon sharp and tart smoke with a creamy note on the palate, which lasts quite a long time in the mouth

    The official tasting notes Color: With its deep maroon, it is a whisky of extraordinary visual presence. Nose: Once uncorked, the bottle exudes a unique fragrance that fills the room with sweet and smoky aromas. Racy, wild and complex without water - absolutely bewitching with some water. Dried fruits and toasted bread. The smoke flavors are reminiscent of barbecue and harmonize perfectly with the hint of clove and cinnamon. Palate: On the palate, the Octomore 07.4 presents full-bodied and opulent. Sweet and peaty meets toasted oak. Exotic flavors of coconut, clove, lemon zest, caramel and Turkish honey. Orange blossom honey strikes oak and is swept away by a wave of smoke and peat. Finish: The aftertaste seems endless and reminiscent of licorice, clove, dried fruits and roses. The powerful oak tone makes room for the typical Octomore finale: endless smoke and an unforgettable adventure!

HONEYSUCKLE AND ROSE MINGLE WITH LIQUORICE AND CLOVE, DRIED DATES, APRICOTS AND HONEYED VANILLA RELEASED FROM THE OAK WILL SLOWLY FADE THEN THE SMOKE WILL LINGER FOR AN AGE COMPETING WITH THE SWEETNESS OF THE OAK FOR THE LAST WORD ON AN UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE
