I'm not sure how they packed this much smoky peat (167 ppm), a high alcohol content (57%), with young age (5 yrs), and produced such a smooth, rich, delicious whisky. I like Ardbeg Uigeadail, but this is smoother AND peatier. I love Lagavulin 16, and I would describe this Octomore as an exponentially stronger, peatier manifestation, yet the same underlying taste and smoothness. I made the mistake of following the Octomore with a dram of Lagavulin, and I tasted no peat in the Laga.

This is "the most heavily peated barley on the planet". Yup. A big Laphroaig fan I had to give it a try. Sure its phenols are higher, but that's really just because it's bottled at (or nearly at) cask strength. Watered down to 48%-ish, I really couldn't tell the difference in peat strength between this and the Laphroaig quarter cask. But the Laphroaig had far more character than this one. This just rang hollow. I'm glad to have tried it, but sure wish it hadn't cost as much as it did. Doubt I'll be getting a new one anytime soon. (And totally agree with prev review about the bottle, not knowing how much is left!)

do not waste your money on this....heavy, unbalanced, tasteless (excluding the extremely peated part, this is not a whisky...probably the most peated in the world by far not even close to the average whisky

this is a love or hate scotch, I love smokey peaty scotch so this I absolutely love. no refers at the price.

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!

Huge flavor and aroma. But, does not stick to you like some other peated malts.
30th January 2015
excellent Whisky. You can taste the raw hand made flawors, in perfect balance. This is a good example of a whisky that you dont drink to get drunk. This is pure travel into hart of a Whisky.

But 1-5 gotta love em. My favorite is the 2.1- probably the best thing ever to cross my lips, other than what's her name?

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

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.

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.
