Another Octomore, this time the travel retail exclusive 6.2, sample from my great friend Jon (@dvdbloke) from the Scotch and Sci Fi Blog
167PPM and finished in limousin oak this 5 year old dram I am expecting to challenge to my senses.
Wow this is definitely the favourite so far, very drinkable and damn it works well, the citrus fruits are a fresh challenge and I loved the notes from them, I really wish I'd got a bottle of this.
Thanks again to Jon (@dvdbloke) for the sample.
Creamy and sweet, there's peat smoke yes but it's like smoked passion fruit and seaweed, it shouldn't work but it does, there's citrus sweetness and lots of briney seaweed and salty seaside chips, along with earthy honey roast vegetables, very much enticing.
The smoke and wood spice come through strongly at the beginning here, before more honey roast chalky vegetables, sweet carrots, parsnips, then those citrus notes of orange peel and passion fruit sauce, lovely
Sweet passion fruit, woody and salty smoke
