Another Octomore, this time the 2009 distilled Islay Barley Peated to a whopping 258PPM.
I've been really enjoying going through these seriously Peated drams and this is not different with lots of peaty goodness.
Octomore is a huge dram that doesn't pull and punches, it's tasty but very very powerful too lots of lemon and lemongrass notes along with that lovely heather and bracken vegetal note, lovely stuff.
Thanks to Bruichladdich for the official sample.
The big hit of powerful lemongrass filled vanilla and cream smoke with a chalky undertone, then salty sea weed, crunchy green apples, gentle smouldering purple heather and bracken
Huge lemon waxy char and smoke with a lovely chewy thick mouthfeel, vanilla cream and salty chips come next, then that purple heather comes in next.
Sweet tangy lemon waxy smoke, oak and wood char,
