Nose

Sehr schöner "grüner" (grasiger, kräuterlastiger, wurzeliger), trockener und herber Rauch, dann eine fruchtige speckige Süße, gefolgt von sehr deutlichen salzig-maritimen Tönen, keine Spur von stechendem Alkohol aber doch eine kühlende Brise in der Nase; das Ganze erinnert mich an ein kaltgepresstes Premium-Kräuteröl, oder gar Olivenöl? später folgen weiße Schokoladde und dann schließlich sehr ausgeprägte Noten von Vanille und Karamell;

Taste

Ölig und bittrig - und zwar wunderbar auseprägt, krätig aber nicht scharf, der Rauch ist ausgesprochen homogen und gut eingebettet in alle Aromen, wieder kommen Kräuter, Wurzeln, Oliven und dann mehr kalter Rauch, im Hintergrund baut sich eine subtile Fruchitgkeit auf, und dann, spät aber doch, Tannine und eine fruchtige Würzigkeit vom Weinfass, rote Früchte gepaart mit Eichenholz;

Finish

Ausgesprochen schön ausbalnziert, homogen, weich bis buttrig und dann doch wieder einen Kräuter-Gemüse-Note; mittellang;

Comments

Top! Jung, balanciert, wunderbare Textur, hab ich sehr genossen!

Nose

Zuerst Zitruslastig mit am ehesten Grapefruit umhüllt von viel Rauch. Im Hintergrund etwas Zucker. Je länger man riecht desto mehr verschwindet der Rauch. Noten von frischem Holzofenbrot und Getreidemalz drängen in die Nase. Der Alkohol beisst etwas.

Taste

erst recht starker Alkohol mit weiterhin schönem Rauch. Recht süß und dezent malzig. Die frische Zitrusnoten finden sich auch im Mund wieder.

Finish

schöne Würzigkeit. die Zunge wird trocken-bitter belegt.

Comments

BLINDVERKOSTUNG: Sehr leckerer Whisky, ein toller Raucher! Könnte ein Laphroaig oder Kilchoman sein? Gefällt mir gut, denke Fassstärke um 53%? ca 8-10 Jahre?

Color: lighter gold, the pour reflected some of the light from the flash when I took a picture of it

Legs: fairly thin yet again, what’s with these travel retail only releases? I love me some LEGS!

Nose: screams red wine with the just rotten grapes and dark berries, sweet “smooth” honey but light, some seaweed but not as briney as the 6.2, fairly restrained with surprisingly not much peat showing up, some malty cereal notes

Palate: heavy cereal notes, there goes the peat with a whack in the face with the smoke and the ash yet not medicinal at all, salted honey, unidentifiable red fruits (it feels more like a mixture gone bad)

Finish: disappointingly short with a thin mouthfeel here too, the cereal and honey aspects show up again (lovely), not much else though

Balance: well balanced with similar notes from the nose, palate, and finish all showing up

Nose

Funky farm notes: Wet hay, stables and wet animals. Some fruity (probably wine) notes in the back. Business in the front, party in the back, as they say. And of course the peat, but somewhat restrained and more vegetal than smoky.

Taste

More peaty and winey than the nose. Swims very well. A bit dry and ashy as well. Wonderful meaty leather notes leads into the finish.

Finish

Ashy. Peaty. More smoky now. Dry, almost tastes like being in a sauna. Fruit is completely gone.

Comments

Really quite good. Very particular, I have not tasted another whisky like this. I do prefer Laphroaig and Ardbeg peat though.

Pow! This Octomore is a lot more punchy on the palate than previous versions I have tried. The sweetness from the Syrah wine is an interesting addition, though the focus here is on the ash and soot notes which dominate the experience from start to finish. By no means a daily drinker, but that's not what Octomore is about right?

You may not be surprised, it is smoky and salty with some earth. I find it quite singular.
