    Wow, what a thing. This Octomore is surprisingly soft and fruity compared to the Octomore 06.1 / 167. Of course, extremely malted peat, but this fruity freshness makes this Octomore something special. I like it!
    • Nose
      Fine malty peat pours out of the glass. An amazing freshness and fruit is clearly noticeable. A fine smoky note fights against the peat and loses significantly. Again, this light fruit. This fruit is just here, then again only sweet malty peat.
    • Taste
      Immediately a smoky smoky peat hits me. Short comes some fruit to light before the high alcohol content stuns the palate. After adding a little water, the second sip develops a wonderfully peaty aroma. A subtle smoke is above the peat. An amazing fruitiness fights through the peat and turns the peat into an incredibly soft peat aroma.
    • Finish
      How can it be otherwise, first only this fruity peat. Slowly, some smoke is added. The finish is surprisingly short and fresh. Actually, the finish is already long, with the fruity freshness of the peat of the departure relatively quickly neutralized.

    • Nose

      Loads of earthy peat with lots of smoke (which actually comes across in a surprisingly mild way), slightly ashy, sea salt, piccalilly, mustard, pepper, butter, vanilla, oranges, lemons, peaches, wood shavings.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Salty, earthy, pu-erh tea, oily, vanilla, sweet and sour lemon, liquorice, chili peppers, mustard, black pepper and some ashy bitterness.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Very long: fading citrus notes, liquorice, chili peppers and charcoal.

    What a dram. This is arguably the best Octomore that I've tasted (so far);
    • Nose
      Wonderfully light, not pungent at all - amazingly this 208ppm whisky doesn't hit you in the face with peat at all. Fresh, fruity, then smoke.
    • Taste
      From the get go, it's clear that this 5 year old is holding up quite well to the peat. The peat is soft, adding a layer to a great and fruity whisky. If only this whisky had a little more age to it...
    • Finish
      Long and lingering. It stays with you a long time, going from fresh fruits to candycane, honey, vanilla and caramel and fading in smoke.

    Aroma: Full smoke (was clear), then red berries. Apricot, cherries and cinnamon with some earth Taste: Oily, sweet, fruity (cherry and grapes) and fully smoky. Typical Octomore !!! Finish: Smoky with red fruits. Vanilla and oak Conclusion: Horny part for the Top Price 2018 !! For me now the best Octomore (have tried the 6.1, 6.2, 7.1, 8.1 and 8.2 until now)

    A complex, smoky whisky with a long finish. Can easily tolerate a few drops of water. You do not notice his young age at all.

  7. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Big peat, but not so much that finally with an immediate sweetness too. There is red fruit here, as well as malt. Super frank attack on the palate, very spicy, very intense. Very long on peat and cold ashes.

    Enthusiasm 4/5

    • Nose
      Smoke, barbecue sauce, bacon, medicinal, brine, salt. Eucalyptus touches.
    • Taste
      Power and metal attack. Iodine, smoked meat, cigar, petrol. Also rocket or lamb's lettuce, and a black olive ponite. Very ripe red fruits, almost moldy.
    • Finish
      Long on red fruits and intense smoke.

  9. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Smoky, sweet, spicy. Delicious! A fantastic torfer who finds the right balance. The wine finish does not dominate, but complements the peat.
