  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.

    Suddenly delicate, smoky cognac, with the aroma of nut assorted, toffee caramel, soaked acidified apples, a hospital room and burnt flowers, sweet-sour taste with hints of smoked meats and vanilla-malt pastries, the finish is tartly dry with hints of caramel, smoked and smoked.
    Soft, chic, delicate. If so of course you can say about Octomore. Peat stories here are more on the background, domination for my taste is more about nuts and caramel, rather unexpected and cool whisky. Great work with barrels.

    RATING: 88pts - [n23, t22, f21, b22] → | 86-89: Remarkable |

  3. 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.

    • 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.
