  1. VaryingViewpoint scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    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.

    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.

  3. karloff scored this whisky 96 points Specialist

    This tasted like I imagined it would and I absolutely loved it.
    • Nose
      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.
    • Taste
      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.
    • Finish
      A very long fiery finish that burns long into the night.

    My first Octomore - a blatant experience!
    • Nose
      Immediately an intense strong smoke rises from the glass and settles above everything else. It has a cooling effect due to the combination of high alcohol content and extra smoke in the nose, almost like menthol.
      The smoke is multi-layered but in total more in the campfire corner than in the medical field. It does have a lot of smoke, but it is pleasant and aromatic, not stinking or pungent.
      It takes a long time for me to do anything but smoke. Then there is a slight vanilla sweetness and the typical Laddie citrus freshness. With a bit of water, the smoke fades into the background a little, so that the citrus and vanilla come out more. At the same time, the smoke in the background becomes more phenolic, loses some of the location heat.
    • Taste
      As expected, first of all only smoke. Not spicy, not alcoholic. Rather a little oily and with a vanilla sweetness. The smoke is strong and aromatic. He occupies the whole tongue and also rises on the palate and in the throat. He warms. Then the bourbon barrel with sweet oak, vanilla and maltiness comes through. However, I do not find fruitiness. The smoke gives the whisky an amazing amount of volume. The young age is super laminated.
    • Finish
      Rather short, but the smoke stops for a very long time.
