Dyno Note

after all the raving reviews, i've bought me one... for special occasions only though with this price... holys**t!!!
While I am awaiting delivery i'm all warmed up by the Scotch Test dummies review, the review on whiskyfun by Serge Valentin, who'se comment on water leaves me confused for the first time... allow me to add the following video to this already impressive list  ;)


This guy, Liquorhound, has something to say about adding water to this baby

Octomore 5y 06.3 64%

Nase: 
Direkt kühlend, grassig / moosig und deutlich würzig. Rauch hält sich schön die Waage. 
Ich spüre etwas ätherische Noten wie Eukalyptus und etwas Minze. 

Gaumen:
Bämmm... So kenn ich ihn. 
Kraftvoll ohne Ende. Sehr viel Würzigkeit. 
Sehr floral mit erdigen und blumigen Noten (Seetang, Algen, Moos). 
Jetzt habe ich noch diese etwas würzigen Waldhonig. Etwas bitteres ist auch noch dabei. Vielleicht etwas grüner Pfeffer? 

Abgang:
Bleibt sehr lang und die Würze scheint überhaupt nicht enden zu wollen. Der Rauch wirkt nie zu dominat und begleitet sehr schön bis zum Ende mit. 

Ein Knaller in Reinkultur! 

Pkt. 92/100

Color
Old gold
Nose

Rich, buttery peat. Farmy. A hint of spice and mild sweetness. 

Taste

Strong, oily arrival. Sweet and rich peat and subtle smoke. Honey, spice, buttery and farmy.

Finish

Long and spicy-sweet. Rich peat and farm notes prevail with a long finish. 

Comments

Fabulous whisky. Powerful but also balanced with sweet and well-mannered peat. Great dram!

Gaija Tasting note

Color
Old gold
Nose

Chesse crackers, cork and leather to begin with. Quite a beast. Maraschino cherries in a barn on fire, then tons of various citrus fruits : sweet lemon jelly, bitter grapefruit, pomelo, ... Still very farmy with red cabbage, rotten bananas and tomato concentrate (yes), but also very Islay with driftwood and green pepper. Quite complex !

Taste

Very intense, evaporates on the lips. Smoked oranges and black tea, leather and drity old iron, sloe berry, huge pepper ... Very spicy indeed, with added notes of liquorice, origano and rosemary. There are many notes that hint at a very good aged gin actually.

Finish

sappy and earthy, very drying upon swallowing but soon to come back on sweeter treats like ashy citrus fruits, cinnamon, brown bread, ... seems eternal. Very evolutive : 20 minutes later we're still under notes of burning hay, lavender, and gin indeed.

Comments

Beastily good and a complexity/age ratio unmatched to date.
