    A masterpiece of a monster. It's more complex than the Octomores I've tasted, and the ABV give it about the same punch. 
    • Nose
      It's peaty!

      Compass Box sais the major part of this is Laphroaig, but the initial nose is remarkably similar to Corryvreckan.

      It mellows down after a while in the glass.

      Briny, salt, seaweed, black smoke and soot.

      Some crude oil and varnish as well.

      Underneath the more powerfull aromas are a subtle fruity sweetness of over ripe bananas and pears.

      ABV is noticable but not overwhelming.
    • Taste
      Of course peat here as well. It's hot and spicy. There's dark coco chocolate, cigar tobacco, It's salty and a little bitter.
    • Finish
      Long and warming with the hot spices lingering. The dark coco is also persistant and is more prominent as it goes slightly dry at the end.
