Octomore Orpheus Bottling Note

Not only is Bruichladdich Octomore the world's most heavily peated whisky, at 140 ppm, this astonishingly complex whisky has also been finished (or ACEd (Additional Cask Enhancement) in Bruichladdich-speak) in barrels from Château Pétrus, one of the world's top Bordeaux vineyards.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Quite sweet, dichotomy of grapey sweetness and peat. Berry fruits, new make. Very young.

Palate: Not as peaty as expected, quite spicy though. A sort of berry fruit sweetness, sweet cereals, new-make, jam-like.

Finish: Grape like here, very sweet, fiery spices from the intense phenol levels.

Overall: A marmite dram, those in search of a youthful, but very peaty whisky will love it.

This is a belter!!!

Just amazing. In the nose you have steamy fire and grilled red paprika, then nose is soothed with red wine moisty bouqet (Chateau Petrus). Same sensation in the palate - just when you yhink your tongue has burnt the juicy and winey help arrives! Has 5yo and it is so elaborated. Great job!
