Interesting fact… Bruichladdich Octomore 06.1 5 Year Old Scottish Barley whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Scotland. Had it been produced in America its name would be Bruichladdich Octomore 06.1 5 Year Old Scottish Barley whiskey, instead of whisky.
Just bought a bottle for 119. Can't wait to crack it!!!

Amazing bottle. I went to my local scotch bar and had the pleasure to try this. This bottle is not a "heavy peated" knockoff like peat monster or something like that. This is the real deal. Delicious and wonderful as a night cap or to end the evening with. A very slow sipper. Had to go buy a bottle

This has to be one of the most amazing malts I've bought in recent years. The common mistake people make is to expect the huge peat blast that you get from a Laphroaig,Ardbeg or Lagavulin. This Bruichladdich needs time to open up and adding small drops of water helps things along. The malt has been peated on the mainland so it's not a medicinal tcp malt but a more bonfire woody peat hit that does come through very strongly but it has to have time to open up as it's rather complex. For a 5 year old whisky the maturity and complexity is phenomenal. Well done Jim :-)

Love it since I first tried it on Islay... Toffee, malt and sweet fruits!

having wanted to try an octomore for ages, i finally got a bottle. sadly it didn't live up to my expectations. tip if you buy a bottle, it is much better when water is added, brings out a lot more flavour. Not usually a fan of adding water to whisky (a cask strength man usually)but this one really needs it.
