Taste

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

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.

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.

Roasted nut, thick soya sauce, burnt grass with thickened prune glaze. A drop of peat bomb, intensely sweet with lots of raisin, mint, lemon. Clean, exceptional body with ultra smooth finishing and superbly long without any trace of unpleasant. Probably best Octomore so far.

— at Whisky Live Singapore.
