- Very good single malt! ;)
- 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.
Warm, open, smoked, rubber, dry peat, coals fire, very dry.
Powerful, saturated, coal, pepper-ginger wave, sweetness is simply indecent, smoked, smoke, burnt sugar.
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.
Smoke, burning gum, sweetish, peach, slightly putrid, cider, fermented grass, anise
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
Smoke, delicate oak, malt, vanilla, long
- Tasting of 7 Octomores:
A bit smoke at first. Sweet peat. Rubber. Wet wool. Citrus. Moss. Slightly fruity. Salty.
Mouthcoating. Pepper- Bitter. Red berries. Still the soft peat. Liquerice. Fruity.
Still pepper and slightly bitter and peaty. Perhaps more peaty towards the end. Liquerice.
- Nose: this is something! Peat in caramel? A hint of chocolate and tobacco ... it's full of everything and everyone will find their own ...
Taste: soft taste, as for 59.5% ... sweet and peat ... at the same time honey and gives off old leather (leather saddle of a bicycle Ukraine since the USSR) ...
Again, the taste of a cigar ... (That's what you need for a smoke)
Velvet and heavy at the same time ... Wonderful!
Finish: long and powerful ... Peat and ash will have to be picked out of your teeth for a long time ...
And this is 5 years of exposure !!! ☝️ Barrel played at 100%!
As the manufacturer claims, this result was made possible by extremely slow distillation.
