  1. Kovalyoff scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    90
    Despite the stated endurance in bourbon, it seems to me a wine finish in the nose, and the color of the kagbe nectar hints ...
    Nose: behind a heavy peat curtains lies a farm in a green meadow, propolis, and excuse me - wine acidity (or is it ripe and fermented ripe apricots?)
    Taste: everything is settled with peat, but there is still honey, black pepper, salt, light anesthesia ...
    Finish: long, warm and pleasant ... astringent
    Great result for such a young exposure.

  4. Calmar scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Funny and frivolous, despite the serious values ​​of the fortress and PPM, sweet-citrus on a peat background, an extremely tidy, dessert peat monster.
    • Nose
      Open, wet, wet, leafy leaves, a crude treated tree, raw mushrooms, surprisingly few smoke-and-peat derivatives for 167 claimed ppm, wet tin, dried apples.
    • Taste
      Powerful, dense, sweet peat, lemon, orange, lollipops, ash and charcoal, lemonade notes, a little smoked meat
    • Finish
      Cheerful, warming, sweet, citrus-peat, soft, lollipops, apple-pear confiture.

    Great whisky. For me one of the best Octomore. Less smoky than you might think with the PPM Very well balanced.
    • Nose
      Peaty and smoky Relatively sweet and fruity Light nut flavors and slight hints of vanilla
    • Taste
      Smoky and sweet Salty Maritime notes pepper notes
    • Finish
      Long finish Smoke, good cutie, vanilla Salty maritime notes pepper

    The origin of all Octomore ...
    In contrast to Future I, the way is clear!

    Great stuff, but takes a lot of time in the glass to breathe

  10. Kiwiski scored this whisky 89 points Member Senior

    Only ever available from the Distillery and in very limited numbers.
    Much sought after due to its very high 167ppm peat content and a real
    future collectable
