This is another release from Octomore featuring 100% Scottish barley and 167ppm peat! Thats about the peatiest in the world

  • Nose: mellow creamy leather, with some cheddar and smoked ham, there is also a grassy barnyard aroma some heather honey, herbal notes and sea spray.

  • Pallet: seaside entry, salty spice, smoked ham, barley sugars, boiled sweets and roasted nuts.

  • Finish: smoked honey, sooty ash, very balanced with growing smoke.

  • Mark neat – 8.1

Previously ive reviewed an octomore (connosr.com/reviews/bruichladdich/…) and thoroughly enjoyed it. This one isnt bad, its suprisingly delicate hence no water. But there is no wow factor nothing outrageous, its a bit yeah delicate.

I tried the 5.1, but due to all the reviews claiming that this one is inferior to the previous batch, I've decided to wait untill the next release of the 6.3

@Pandemonium yeh look this is a decent whisky but its made by Octomore so it needs to be something a with more character. I think your choice is wise

Thanks for this. Just curious @Pandemonium, why the 6.3 and not the 6.2?
