Octomore 6 yo 2007/2014 (64%, Rest and be Thankful Whisky Co., Sauternes, cask # R0000016746, 303 bottles)They had an excellent ex-bourbon around the same time (WF 90). Colour: gold. Nose: fudge, more fudge, and even more fudge, and a rather moderate smokiness that would involve smoked almonds, bitter oranges, and quite some hay. No bomb so far, and a rather well-defined profile. Which is surprising. With water: farmyard, a pile of old tyres, some hay, and a beach at low tide. Kelp, a few crabs, shrimps, all that... Mouth (neat): you know what, I cannot not think of some Breton Kornog matured in Sauternes wood. Which means that I like this arrival quite a lot. No dissonances this time, and a peat/sweetness combo that works, with a zesty/fizzy side that's rather summery. But will it swim? With water: it does. The whole's relatively simple, but it works. Salted and smoked almonds, some paraffin, some putty. Finish: long, rather on smoked almonds and marzipan. Comments: doesn't feel like a total peat bomb. Very good, if not totally stellar in my opinion. Like the cleaner, sharper ones even better (ex-bourbon!) but it does, indeed, destroy the strange new official 7.4. SGP:568 - 86 points.
