Like all Octomore, it’s not as peaty as you’d expect. This one is very clean, with a fresh pine thing going on I really like. Quite mineral. Limestone, lemons, sap, pine needles, eucalyptus. Palate is full and flavours build into an enormous finish. I really like it, but not one I’d reach for often.
Pine needles and sap, mineral - limestone, lemons, capers, brine. Hot oil (vegetable). Popcorn kernels in the hot oil. Very clean, not as intense as you’d expect.
Pretty easy to start. Full mouthfeel, pine needles and honeyed sap. Eucalyptus. Licorice and tar builds...
Boom! Flavours were relatively subdued until the finish. Tiger balm, menthol, black licorice, spruce needles, eucalyptus, tar. Yup, nothing subtle about it. Clean and satisfying though.
