malthead-1984 gave this whisky 90 points
Color
White wine
Nose

intensiver süßer Torfrauch nach kaltem Lagerfeuer, dahinter fruchtige Noten und Zitrusaromen, etwas Fasswürze und immer die leichte frische des  alkohols in der Nase

Taste

mit einem für ein Whisky dieser Art recht schwerer Körper und erstmalnein ordentlichen chili catch, der Rauch breitet sich im fanten Mundraum aus und hat imernoch eine schöne süße, nach einiger Zeit im Mund kommt das Fass mit würze aber ohne tannine durch

Finish

extrem lang, auch zähne putzen hält ihn nicht auf, würziges Fass und über allem der herrliche trockene Rauch, etwas trockenheit bleibt zurück

Comments

ein tolles Erlebniss, sollte aber der letzte dram des Abends sein da andere Aromen kaum noch chancen haben

Color
Amontillad
Nose

Vegetal, iodine, candied ham ,salt, smoked bacon, faint camphor

Taste

Iodine, salt, glazed and smoked ham, bacon, red berries, touch of pepper

Finish

Lingering finish, salt, bacon, drying initially but salivating after, red pepper jelly

Comments

Softer and less aggressive Octomore than the x.1 versions. Wine influence softens the punch on this

Color: lighter gold, probably two shades less?

Legs: legs are thicker (not as lean) and needs stockings to cover them up

Nose: lighter honey, more brine, can get medicinal notes, charred lemon

Palate: much less heat, rather thin, more lemony (aka Caol Ila 25), some smoke

Finish: rather short, not much of an after-taste, definitely medicinal (yuck)

Whiskydream.de schreibt:

Octomore 07.3 (Bruichladdich)

Wir riechen, nachdem die Nase sich an den Rauch gewöhnt hat, Karamell, Toffee vermischt mit Zitrusfrüchten. Eine tolle Kombination! (93)
Im Mund ist der Whisky ohne Wasserzugabe sehr scharf. Die 6 vol % brennen uns fast die Zunge weg... Also geben wir einen Schuss Wasser ins Glas. Jetzt schmecken wir etwas! Rauch, Holzkohle, aber auch Lakritze, gegerbte Leder und Gummi. Eher dumpfere Aromen, aber super interessant. Wow, eine Geschmacksbombe! (95)
Das Finish ist feurig und langanhaltend! Es rundet das Geschmackserlebnis würdig ab. (94)
Gesamtbewertung: 93 Punkte

N: Offers first up a confectionary Quality Street selection of nougat, hazelnuts & caramel set-off by a soft vegetal, oily=briney side.

T: Vegetal peat-smoke and a little allium scrub.

F: The veg-smoke settles.

C: Yet another good Octomore especially on the nose.

Color
Amber
Nose

Tar. Medicinal peat. Wood spice. Iodine. Germolene. Grass. Very aggressive nose, but in a good way. Lactic caramel and honey throat lozenges on the end.

Taste

Aggressive here too, in the same way as the nose. Germolene. Burned fruits. Wood spice. Cinnamon. Marzipan.

Finish

Long. Bitter. Medicinal peat. Dry wood tannins. Salt. Plain toast.

Comments

Tasted at a Malt Mongers Israel evening

This one was quite aggressive. I found a very dominating note of germolene ointment all the through as well as an interesting mix of herbal and fruit notes.
