Bruichladdich Octomore 4.2 Comus

Bruichladdich Octomore Comus Bottling Note

Please note: The tube has a slight dent but this is still an incredibly sought after piece.

This is an interesting one. Octomore Comus is peated to an immense 167ppm, then finished in sauternes casks. This has succeeded in taming the beast somewhat, but this is still a powerful, peaty dram.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: The opening is a combination of peat smoke, bracken, leather, tobacco and waves. This develops into toffee and nutty notes from the oak.

Palate: The Grand Cru Sauterne flavours of pear syrup, plump bursting grapes, guava, passion fruits and cantaloupe come through on the palate with a dusting of icing sugar.

Finish: Peat and smoke with the sweet notes leading the way through the finish.

Overall: An interesting idea that has produced a well-executed, balanced Bruichladdich.

The best Octomore by far!

A monster on paper but immensely approachable, Comus is by far the best release I've ever had from Bruichladdich's stable. If you see it, buy it!

One of my favorite whisky if not the best; very mascoline at the beginning but open up like a flower to get a silky touch. Perfect

Doesn't get much better than this

If you have a chance to sample this, go for it. Most succinctly, it would be described as a velvet touch in an iron fist. Sure it is very smoky and very spicy, but at the same time, very sweet and enjoyable. In my experience, especially the finish (very long and powerful) is something to look out for. Shame that it's not going to stick around for much longer...
