Octomore 10yo TBWC

Superbly smoky single malt from the Bruichladdich distillery, released under the Octomore name and independently bottled by That Boutique-y Whisky Company. Some of Islay's most heavily peated expressions have come from the Octomore range, so expect big things from this one - and be prepared to ask for more.

Batch 2 is a release of 1,195 bottles.

‘That Boutique-y Whisky Company’ bottles single malts, single grains and bourbons from a variety of renowned distilleries as well as producing award-winning blended malts and blends. These whiskies are adorned with cultish graphic novel-style labels.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Coastal air and seaweed bring a wave of salinity among bricks of freshly-cut peat and heavy oak char. Vintage cider apples, buttery shortbread and a hint of gingerbread warmth are present underneath.

Palate Sticky toffee pudding and salted caramel stand strong against waves of big peat and bonfire notes. There’s a flurry of soft tropical fruit notes in the backdrop among golden barley and a touch of sweet, milky coffee.

Finish The peat note becomes more earthy and is joined by a fizz of winter spice, a heap of soot and clean aniseed.

Overall The peat is punchy but not overpowering in this well-composed Octomore.

Reviews for Octomore 10 Year Old (That Boutique-y Whisky Company)
Unique, something different.
Cracking malt. The sticky toffee pudding is both in the nose and palate and it works well with the peat.

Its Octomore peat, without maybe some of the extra Octomore flavoursome artisty
What I love about Octomores' is the complexity of flavours underneath the peat. Yes the peat is a strong characteristic but there is almost like an art and craftsmanship with the barrels used, and the aging process so that when the nose and palate adjusts you can pick out the nuances layer upon layer. Although I enjoy this bottle, i'm not sure this independent bottling has the same characteristics, the peat as ever is strong, and there are flavours underneath it all, but those flavours are much more subtle and as a result the peat is a more dominant factor in flavour, great if you are a peathead and that's what you are looking for. For me, though I do love that Octomore peat, its the digging deep for all the surprising flavours that makes it a miss at this price point. Lets face it Octomore is never cheap, it needs to be special, this is good, is it special - depends what you are looking for. The first rating I read here was a 5, I will give it a 3, which should make it an even 4/5....

Not for everyone
This isn't the peatiest Octomore I've had, but is is still Octomore so it's pretty fucking peaty. Not something for every day, but when you're in the mood there's nothing better than this bad boy.
