    Well, the next Octomo, the next ppm records, though, IMHO, after 80-100 ppm the difference is already insignificant; Well, okay - the party said - It is necessary! The Komsomol answered - Yes !, you need to support sales. And in general, again, the sweet and soft smoke-peat monster of the barrel fortress - amateurs will appreciate, non-lovers will save money.
    • Nose
      Warm, open, smoked, rubber, dry peat, coals fire, very dry.
    • Taste
      Powerful, saturated, coal, pepper-ginger wave, sweetness is simply indecent, smoked, smoke, burnt sugar.
    • Finish
      Sweet pepper, orange peel, charcoal, burnt paper, smoked fish, smoked squid, soft enough and delicate.

    The smoke in the nose is very present, but not as strong as expected by the ppm indication. At least it is not enough to hide the rotten fruit notes that are so typical of young Bruichladdich. In the mouth, the whisky is more harmonious, the fruit notes recede, the finish is soft, pleasant and long.
    The whisky is delicious, but nothing more. Except for the 4.2. The Octomore remain overrated whiskys for me.
    • Nose
      Smoke, burning gum, sweetish, peach, slightly putrid, cider, fermented grass, anise
    • Taste
      Soft body, relatively gentle onset, then comes powerful smoke and also a sharpness on the tongue, a little vanilla, grapes, oak, a trace of mustard, bread
    • Finish
      Smoke, delicate oak, malt, vanilla, long

    Vanilla & Coconut Milk

    Boy, I just tasted a grand Octomore (06.3) and am therefor somewhat hesitant to try another one, out of fear of it not being all it could be. But hey, everything for science, right? Tasting them head-to-head is fun, after all. So no more procrastinating! This Octomore is also five years old and matured solely on American Oak. PPM? 258, thank you very much.

    Well, that nose is certainly pleasant enough. Lots of sweetness in the guise vanilla and… more vanilla. And coconut milk, truly! Then some farmer’s butter, shells on the beach and sweet peat. Hint of plasticine. Just a tiny salty edge. Some smoldering wood in the background. Not as complex as the 06.3, but a wonderful nose nonetheless, albeit quite different.

    Oh, boy! The ABV is powerful indeed. Alcoholic peat bomb, if you ask me! Not much is left of that soft, sweet nose. Becomes rather astringent on lemon, peat, olive oil, ashes and tar with a big smokiness. A powerhouse, although somewhat one-dimensional.

    The finish is long, warm, smoky… but a touch astringent.

    The nose is my favorite part of this malt. Palate and finish: too sharp. Don’t get me wrong, still a nice Octomore. Thanks, Timon!

    Nose: Lots of smoke, just a little bitty fruity. Alcoholic and salty but not salty like the sea.
    After a dip of water, the fruit comes out and smokes gets behind a little. I can smell vanilla, peach, Aprikose...

    The taste is a little oaky and fruity. I can taste the salt and a strong smoke.

    The finish ist middle long, the smoke is clear in the mouth. Fruit is more in the background like the salt.
