- Strong sweet peat with some light pear, vanilla, charcoal and ash in both the noise and palate. The finish in medium-long with some smoky lemongrass. Not complicated, just a great dram with impact.
- Krass impressive experiment no matter what you like!
Pure concentrated, smoldering smoke, very dense like mist, hints of citrus, malt, oak
Everywhere overlying smoke, some malt & cereals, Haach lemon zest, oily, nutmeg, some thyme later
Herbal and smoky, he remains eternally in the throat
- I decided not to add water, I know a lot of people do, but It hit the spot for me completely straight, so why mess with it. I thought it was fantastic, a must for the peat lovers.
- This tasted like I imagined it would and I absolutely loved it.
Smells like Hell, but in a good way, Burnt and charred wood, cooked sea whelks, white pepper, uncooked pork sausage, a mossy fresh water stream and a winters morning on a beach at low tide.
Just straight, nothing added, pretty intense as you can imagine, but that is how I like it, you can really taste the barley. Thick black liquorice stick, full bodied, TCP, Fisherman's friend and Victory V cough sweets,but there is nothing to overpowering.
A very long fiery finish that burns long into the night.
- peat, little smoke, citrus, smoked meat, ham and cheese and salty notes. quite impressive for such a young one!
- Octomore 6.1 - 5 Year Old Scottish Barley. Short review with Teresa at The Bingham, Richmond having food on the terrace, Oct 2019. Dense oily briney peat with some biscuity wood. Water brings out some crystallized ginger. Decent. Sort of a typical Octomore - dense, salty with an 'oily' peatiness that doesn't really come across as smoky. 3.45/82
- It is of medium viscosity and its bouquet is of relatively strong intensity. I have aromas of dry peat smoke, citrus, salt, vanilla, caramel and ash. Not very complex. Relatively dry in taste. He has clearly noticeable alcohol and a relatively heavy body.
- Wow! Less peat notes than expected, but still a stunner. Surprisingly full-bodied and long, soft finish. Drinkable without dilution.
