Whisky Reviews for Octomore Edition 03.1 / 3_152

16 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.90 points

  1. VaryingViewpoint scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    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!

    Always interesting to taste an octomore, but read the data more extraordinary than they taste. The peat and smoke is not soo dominant and exaggerated strong as expected, instead one notices the young age and thus also something metallic. In addition, the high alcohol content stands out. Adding water to the whisky wins sweetness, but he loses quite quickly from the rest of the aroma. All in all, a (sub) average whisky that does not justify the asking price.

    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!

  5. thijs100 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    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.
    • 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.

  6. barryfox915 scored this whisky 70 points Expert Senior

    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.
