  2. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    I like it in its overall calmness with the sometimes rather special note just wonderful.
    • Nose
      interesting, almost cool nose, some mint, light peat, a subtle mustiness, absolutely no alcohol that stings in the nose, but this slightly cheesy, sweaty note is also special.
    • Taste
      soft, sweet and salty, then a bitter oak note, a surprisingly herbaceous bitterness, a little cotton candy still remains in the background.
    • Finish
      first a little herbaceous bitterness, then nice peat, a pleasant smoky tart mouthfeel remains.

  3. LaddieNerd scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Delicious. Unfortunately not in barrel strength.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Peat, ham chips, subtle plum. Complex notes.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Again, peat, complex red fruits, some vanilla and wood.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium length finish. Again, peat and red fruits.

  7. Harvey scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    The 1st ever bottling from Bruihladdich to contain Octomore.

  8. molar3rd scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    olor: Pale gold

    Nose: It’s a true laddie in nature when it comes to the fruitiness, but all this is layered below a nice peaty cover. It reminds me quite a bit the Octomore 2.1 nose. I like it.

    Mouth : Ashe, Big Peat, but sweeter notes are abundant. You get a very delicious sort of “peaty” lollipop feeling, which is quite interesting. It’s very strong, and peppery.

    Finish : Peppery, Ashy, quite long and enjoyable.

    Summing it up :

    While not Enormously complex, it’s very enjoyable and not as flat as can be expected. The sweet-peat-fruit mélange does the work. It’s a sort of in your face! Malt, I’d recommend it to peat lovers especially and those who like a very strong impact of coal, smoke, and ash in their face, nose and throat. It’s not an Octomore, or a supernova, but it’s darn peaty and wild. The Price (£40.35) is also not too high, and you get a chance to sample some PC, Octomore and laddie in one.

    Norrie, this wee dram is in your honor!
