What's in a name? Bruichladdich Octomore 06.1 5 Year Old Scottish Barley whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Bruichladdich Octomore 06.1 5 Year Old Scottish Barley whiskey, rather than whisky.

bit of a let down
Good, good, good...
A sip and the peat smoke begins to seep out your pores, your follicles tingle and your body warms. After a few moments with a little bit of water, a sweet undercurrent emerges and yields an incredibly round wallop of flavor and a multiplicity of notes that you can ponder while you think about taking another taste.

Worth every penny
Spend Time With 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.
