Whisky Reviews for Octomore Edition 06.2 / 167

54 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.80 points

  1. Misery scored this whisky 91 points Member Senior

    N: Smoky-cognac, nutty assortment, bright sweet caramel, pickled apples, smoked meats, milk chocolate, car first aid kit, pills, tingling nose with a bright sour smoke.
    T: Sweet with a pleasant wine sourness, the body is dense and almost liqueur, apples, nuts, smoked meat, malt.
    F: Tart, dryish with hints of smoke and soot, smoked meat, caramel comes back and confectionery notes appear.
    B: Soft, elegant, delicate. If so of course we can say about Oktomor. I would say that peat stories here are more in the background, nuts and caramel were more dominant for my taste. Great job with the barrels.

    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.

    • Nose
      At the beginning the typical big heavy cloud of smoke. He is definitely both sweeter and spicier than the 06.1.
      The sweetness is much fruity. The Limousin barrels are clearly noticeable. It smells like berries and bright fruit (pear?) And has a little bit of syrup. Spicy oak tones underline the whole thing. It tingles in the nose instead of cooling, as at 06.1.
      With the addition of water, the smoke swings away from the campfire towards the phenolic. It gets maritime with lots of algae and salty sea breezes. For the sweetness and the barrel completely in the background.
    • Taste
      This is the smoke hammer! Tastes almost na Laphroaig. Lots of iodine, seaweed and peat smoke. Then it gets really warm on the tongue and on the back palate the typical notes of European oak rise. Dark chocolate and toffee.
    • Finish
      Long, smoky and warm.

    Strong, overwhelming, especially on the nose. But now I have a bit of similar feeling like Kelpie, the less sometimes is more. But it was almost 86 points. :)
    • Nose
      Smoke and ash, medicines, honey, salted caramel, big dose of apple, seaweed. Sweet, acidic, lively cognac notes.
    • Taste
      Strong! Rose, honey, salted caramel, tobacco, punch, orange peel, salt, ash and smoke, spices.
    • Finish
      Long, tobacco, spices, smoke.

    Everything in here what you are waiting for associating an Octomore. Nice Smoke and ashes, a lot of fruits (red fruits due to the Limousin Oak). Tar and tobacco. I like this one very much except of some light bitter notes at the finish line.Concerning price/performance ratio: 7/10
    • Nose
      Smoke, ashes, medicinal (some iodine), red fruits, gummi bear tar, overripe apples.
    • Taste
      Sweet spicy smoke. Tobacco, tar, cigar punch, red fruits, salt, ashes.
    • Finish
      Long. Tobacco, ashes, red fruits. Ashes and fruits.
