Our Tasting notes
A palate-bending composition of flavour and spice. It’s complex with many, many layers that changes from sip to sip, some clashing maybe with definite red wine and botrytis notes, but in the end – it’s a perfumed powder keg that compliments (even tempers) the Octomore smoke resulting in a whisky that continues to give, long after the final pour.
Producer’s tasting notes
NOSE: The dark dried fruit and bitter chocolate combination on the nose is followed by an explosion on the palate.
PALATE: Dry peat smoke, spicy ginger, liquorice, then tea leaves and moist tobacco. Apricot and sea salt wrapped in a blanket of salty, smoky dried fruit.
FINISH: The finish is desperately long, the lingering flavours will twist and turn as they compete for the final word from this outrageous dram
