Packaging: In original box
Volume on Label: 70cl

Octomore 6.2 (Bruichladdich)
5 years old
Non-Chill Filtered
No Added Colouring
58.2% ABV


The Octomore is a super heavily peated Whisky from Bruichladdich. Chemically tested as the peatiest Whisky in the world at 167 ppm, it is truly a beast. At 5 years old, and bottled at cask strength with no jiggery pokery (eg. Non chill filtered, no added colour), it is an experience to say the least. It’s not a cheap Whisky, but every Octomore experience I have had has been well worth the extra quids.

As with all x.2 releases the Octomore has been finished for a number of months in an alternative cask. In this case in limousin oak from Acquitiaine. The oak having once contained one of the worlds greatest eaux de vie.

Note. As with any pour, often a little dribble ends up going down the neck of the bottle, as it did in the case of this dram, I wiped the liquid with my finger. It is so very very oily. It feels great, never mind smell, taste, it feels bloody amazing!

Nose.

Big, intensive, peat bomb. Barbecue peat, not tcp. Briny, seashore barbecues, with fatty bacon burning a crispy way. Very meaty, be warned, don’t stick your nose too far in the glass because it is unforgiving. There’s a little vanilla, mountains of chilli and pepper, then the uniqueness comes in of the x.2 finish, there is a light fruity citrus in the background. A very definite orange twang, amongst some creamy honey soaked berries. With time in the glass more of that fruity variation from the regular Octomore asserts itself.

Palate.

So chewy and delightful to keep in the mouth. There is quite a nip from the high alcohol, but it passes quickly and then the joy is to be had. Thick sweet honey vanilla, peat sweet, some slightly bitter marmalade, thick fruity berried jammy flavours. All with a rich sticky sweet intensity that feels special.

Finish.

The jam and orange sticks, with some big peat retention, more sweetness, a little wood bitters, embracing heat, a fine feel good factor.
