  1. Archer scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    At the beginning, the search for the smoke is almost in vain, it takes time to comfortably breathe into the nose. Smoke is also what remains in the finish, but there is not really much behind it anymore, the smoke conceals that it basically has little substance, hardly any foundation.

      Warm and waxy, green grass, slightly metallic, hardly noticeable smoke. Herber herb mix. Ah, now the smoke is coming. Yes, yes, now quite clearly. Green apple and warm pear compote with cinnamon. Ginger cookies, some anise. A freshly opened bag of liquorice.

      Very strong and aggressive on the tongue at the beginning, makes a lot of scratches. Warm apple pie, smoked. Dry smoke, sun-warmed tin roof. Liquorice, a hearty mixture of herbs, anise and ginger.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Intense and penetrating smoke, pepper, sweetly flavored tobacco.

  4. Stanzeflasche scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Ginger, baked apple and vanilla. Earthy smoke above, but very subtle. Ripe white plum, which runs over the fingers. Icing sugar. Sugar candy, you can feel the influence of brandy. Kumquat, lime, lychee. Very balanced set. Almond paste, flavored with pistachio. Yellow wine from Jura. Some cereal reflections, wheat under the sun, roasted corn. White currant. With the addition of water, it stabilizes. Sweet, pastry and lemony on the palate, followed by spices. Slightly sour apples, white pepper, tarragon, smoked wood. Light but very long finish, plum and pomegranate, an ounce of iodine and salt, a sandy beach, light charcoal, brown sugar, butternut. Pear crumble.

    Reminds me a lot of the young bunnahabhain moine of orphan. Smoked salty meat. Heather. Apples. Grassy. A really young islay bucker.

  6. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Very intense and brute whisky, very sweet, very smoky, you have to like it and I do
    • Nose
      Directly Laddie, a thousand miles against the wind and unmistakable, caramel, intense cold smoke, the color yellow comes to my mind, also a lot of vanilla, honey, light fruits, the caramel is slightly burnt, hazelnut, yes you can also interpret cheese feet , but the good kind ;-), creamy, slightly greasy, I like it, much sweeter after the first sip
    • Taste
      Heavy smoke when starting, then creamy, oily, sweet, a pinch of cinnamon, vanilla, caramel, honey, ganache, nuts, sweet wine, cotton candy
    • Finish
      still creamy, very sweet, now Laddie flashes briefly, also fruity, candied, the sweetness counteracts the smoke well, but the smoke comes through better at the back, ashy, a bit of banana, long-lasting

    Perfect whisky after a day on the moor cutting peats. Needs diluting to take the edge off. Sweet taste and definitely not unpleasant as always with Octomore.
