Tasting Notes by GT2
Matte black bottle sampled at Jack Rose in DC. 62.5% and 167PPM bottling. The fourth iteration in the Octomore series.
App- Pours a clear straw, very clear and light like chardonnay. Very sharp, delicate, needle like tears/legs on the snifter.
Nose- Very insane with intense as hell forest floor, spruce tips, lemon verbana, raw animal, body odor, native human, campfire, roasted game. A 'primal' nose if there ever was one. Opening up it, the nose adds peppercorn encrusted sweet bacon and rendered bacon fat, even moving to sweet to maple pancake breakfast.
Taste- Super heating at 62.5% with sharp white pepper, sage leaf, cracked pepper, melted animal fat, campfire heat.
Palate- Bitter, powerful, raw, one of the most primal things I have experienced. Balanced still given the abv. One to savor very slowly.
