Whisky Reviews for Octomore Masterclass_08.2 / 167 PPM

18 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.59 points

  1. Goethe scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    After the Octomore 7.2 Syrah another delicious wine finish. Of course the Amarone is calling the tune, red fruits and berries going a long way down with the very present smoke. A very well balanced malt but a bit to dry at the end. Concluding the 7.2 Octomore is in my opinion a nuance better intermeshed (the Octomore character and the Syrah finish). It's hard to get the Sauternes and the Amarone pulling on the same rope. Therefore it is a great result.Concerning price/performance ratio: 7/10
    • Nose
      Smoke, ashes, red fruits (raspberry, strawberry, some dark grapes, dark cherries), dried fruits, raisins, overripe peaches and oranges, hints of caramel, great Amarone influence.
    • Taste
      Sweet spicy smoke. Tobacco, red fruits again very present, tar, cigar punch, dark chocolate, leather.
    • Finish
      Long. Liquorice, red fruits, tobacco, ashes.

    'The dark side of the masterclass'. Many warm, dark aromas and full in the mouth. The impressions of the eye, nose and mouth are in harmony
    • Nose
      Clear, but soft smoky notes with maritime impact (and that, although I had the glass not yet on the nose). Red grapes, malt, a little bit of ash. Behavioral bacon and prunes. All of a sudden come blackberries and raspberries. There is also a trace of sulfur. With a little water, you can smell cappuccino and the smoke gets weaker.
    • Taste
      Strong, dark fruity approach with a certain sharpness. This flies quite fast and makes the sweetness and a light spice place. Raisins, dark chocolate and mint. With water it is creamier, chocolatier and malty.
    • Finish
      Long, sweet and ... look, there's the smoke again.

  6. boy_genius_ck scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    this is definitely good, rich wines combined with sweet and rich peatiness

  7. schero scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    I do not like it, but I like it.
    • Nose
      Smoky sweet orange peels, burned and wet charcoal, gradually red fruit come through, vinous, juicy and intense blood orange
    • Taste
      Sweet smoky start, neat bite, the sweetness is getting stronger, the vinous notes and the blood orange are immediately present again, with time a little creamy, a lot of heat in the mouth
    • Finish
      Viney red fruits mixed with smoke and oak, very sweet wood tones, very light bitterness, bittersweet creaminess on the palate

  9. ctu scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    I agree with Goethe. Complex and a very good wine finish again. The oak and the dryness might be exaggerated at the finish. 89/90.
    • Nose
      Forest fruits, camphor, smoke, salted caramel and acidic wines. Vanilla and grass.
    • Taste
      Sweet, spicy. Tobacco, antique leather, tannic oak, cocoa and a bit of mixed fruit jam.
    • Finish
      Long, fruity, smoky, oaky.

  10. lapinbilly did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    An octomore quite atypical and delicious, the old age was of wine gives it another dimension superb!
    • Nose
      Beautiful, light peat and red berries, caramel, dried apricots and chocolate
    • Taste
      very sweet peat, cherry, very "octomore" red fruits in addition
    • Finish
      sweet and long between peat and cherry a delight!
