I'm reminded of the Port Askaig 100% proof with this one (Caol Ila) which is half the price. I think I paid about £88 for this one (one of the cheaper Octomores). It's more straightforward than other Octomores: in other words Cask strength peated Islay - not quite an Iron fist in a velvet glove, more an iron fist in an iron glove! i'm afraid i don't get much farminess or complexity with this one...

That said - the signature Bruichladdich spirit sings out loud in this dram. There's a rich, sweet entrance, perfectly quaffable at cask strength without water. It's sweet vanilla custard with a smokey twist. The 'sweet spot' doesn't last long in the glass with this one; as it stands - smokey peaty phenols tend to take over, but not before the custard becomes deeply chocolatey. 

mmmm.....

Nose

Un nez très tourbé, iodé, floral et poivré, de la cendre, du goudron, très puissant!!

Taste

L'alcool est très bien intégré, l'orge malté est doux, toujours des fleurs, des notes de cendre, le réglisse et la tourbe dominent

Finish

La finale est longue sur la tourbe et le réglisse.

Comments

Quelle chaleur, quel bonheur!

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.

Whiskydream.de schreibt:

Octomore 06.1 (Bruichladdich)

In der Nase dominieren neben dem octomore-typischen Rauch (etwas dezenter als der 06.2) fruchtige Aromen, besonders Zitrone und Mirabelle. (89)
Geschmacklich vordergründig sind Holzkohle auf der Zunge, Rauch und ganz deutlich MirabelleI erkennbar. (89)
Der Abgang erfolgt in zwei Wellen. Erst mittelstark mit Kohle, Feuer, aber auch Frucht, dann eine Pause. Wir glauben, das war es. Doch dann kommt er noch einmal kräftig und lang anhaltend. (89)
Gesamtbewertung: 89 Punkte
