Citrus, tar and peat
I find this to be truly, an amazing expression, it's light to start with, it is very satisfying, it has a really long after taste, it lingers, true peat lovers will love it.

A very good scotch. As a peat fan this is just what im looking for most of the time. To me Octomore taste like a mix between Ardbeg Corryvreckan, Kilchoman cask strenght and Big Peat. Strong citrus (kilchoman) and tar (ardbeg) notes, couples with alot if peat. Dosent feel smokey like a Laphroiag or Lagavulin, mostly dominated by peat. And its more peaty than any Arbeg, Kilchoman, Laphroiag or whatever. Think it also reminds me alot of Kilchoman since their bottles are about the same age as Octomore. I have to withdraw one point because of the price. Basically I wont be buying much of this because of the price. I can get two bottles of something equally good instead.

Ignore the negative reviews...
Iodine rich, new leather shoes, salty, young and fresh and briny...and a dollop of brown sauce on smoked bacon to roughen it up a bit. Something sweet and zesty sits underneath it all. Ok, its young, and you can tell, and it hits you with a spicy dryness, but don't be fooled by the phenol level; it manifests as cooling menthol between the sheets of smoke, and at no point is it over-powering. One more thing, do try without water; if you can get your tastebuds accustomed to that dry, tannic spice, you are in for a treat. Some fires just shouldn't be doused.
And thanks, Master of Malt, for the complimentary magazine!

I just had to get this. As a heavy peat fan (i like heavy peated whisk(e)y, im not that heavy) I went to my local store and got a little discount. Now the taste is very very nice, but will stay with me a few days. This is the only dram i put a few drops of water in. I like everything about this but not the bottle. as i make my way through the bottle i have no clue how much is left only to be dissapointed when i run dry. CM
