Our Tasting Notes
Think Caramelo Koalas, fresh whipped cream and orange zest floating effortlessly amongst Octomore’s signature smoke. Cinnamon spice and a warm, earthy funk come on late resulting in a delicious whisky that should please even the staunchest Octomore fans.
Official Tasting Notes
Nose: Smoked vanilla and toffee notes open on the nose, with sooty smoke balanced with delicate coconut and flaked almonds with lemon meringue pie cutting through rich barbeque pork.
Palate: Bright citrus, smoke and a distinct minerality come through on the palate, followed by charred oak and beach bonfire embers. Toffee and creamy vanilla are balanced with the earthy smoke, with bright notes of pear, gooseberry fool and green apple simultaneously adding brightness and depth. Roasted coffee, hints of clove and nutmeg begin to come to the fore, with a gentle hint of heather honey.
Finish: Butterscotch and vanilla are balanced with Octomore’s peat smoke and a hint of salt spray, with burnt heather and gorse flowers settling on the finish.
