An incredible scotch! You know you have a winner when you feel noising is all you need. 

Liquid candied smoke, soot, lemon-drops, papaya, mango, pear, vanilla, creme-brûlée with almost no burn or heat at 59%abv. A high impactful full-bodied scotch that leaves you speechless for a 5yo. If you can find it at a decent price, get it. Right out of the bottle fabulous! Hasn't changed much in two weeks since opened. I'll update if oxidization changes much.

Much better than the 4.1, 5.1 and 6.1. Top four in the Octomores I've had so far. Awesome!

Immer wieder interessant einen Octomore zu probieren, jedoch lesen sich die Daten außergewöhnlicher, als sie denn schmecken. Der Torf- und Rauchgeschmeck ist nicht soo dominant und übertrieben stark wie erwartet, stattdessen merkt man das junge Alter und damit auch etwas Metallisches. Zudem sticht der hohe Alkoholgehalt heraus. Gibt man Wasser dazu gewinnt der Whisky an Süße, jedoch verliert er dafür recht schnell vom restlichen Aroma. Alles in allem ein (unter-)durchschnittlicher Whisky, der den aufgerufenen Preis nicht rechtfertigt.

Tasting Notes by Jim McEwan, head distiller;


Character: What a sensation! Please try it first without water to experience the full power of this amazing spirit.

Colour: Winter sunshine.

Nose: The senses are totally ambushed. A vortex of peat smoke and fire, iodine, wet seaweed, tarry pitch and soaking sailcloth. The more subtle notes of hawthorn and heather, bog myrtle and mint, pine resin and mountain thyme emerge slowly bringing a coolness to the palate.

Palate: A stunning combination of aromatics and flavours. The senses pick up the mellow oakiness from the sweet bourbon casks coming through like chicory and bitter chocolate which brings balance and subtle smoothness. Also, deep down the Bruichladdich DNA of soft green fruits.

Finish: The palate and olfactory system have been completely seduced, having survived the war of the elements, and the flavours remain long after the storm has passed.

Mood: Defiance. Definitely not for the faint-hearted. Like getting hit by a 20ft wave that has crashed over the peat bogs of Islay!

Color
Pale straw
Nose

Green veggies, wood smoke and salty seaweed. Some vanilla and also a fruity edge with underripe banana. The nose is gentler than I expected.

Taste

Ashy and rubbery with salt and a hint of licorice. A touch of lemon in the background. Very dry.

Finish

Lots of smoke and ash. Drying. Very long.

Comments

I really wanted to hate this. But it is actually a good whisky. Not too complex, but that's to be expected from a 5yo whisky.

Colour: Gold.
Nose: Starts on vanilla and dry smoky notes, with some slight maritime and floral influence. It takes some time before the tarry and peaty notes are dominating.
Taste: Salty, peaty, very smoky, slightly ash and on liquorice. The finish is very long, dry, tarry, on dry ashes and lot of dry smoke, with some light mineral smoke.
General Impression: A very dry and extremely smoky Octomore. The smoky notes are considerably stronger than the peaty notes. Not as complex as the Port Charlotte, but more extreme. For the peat and smoke freaks.
