Octomore 7.2

Octomore 7.2 Peated to 208PPM this was initially matured in American Oak then in casks which previously held Syrah wine.

Another wow moment with the powerful smoke, but lots and lots of red berry sweetness, this is deliciously yummy, but very very powerful also, a really interesting dram that might have edged it to my favourite octomore.

Thanks to Bruichladdich for the official sample.


That sweet earthy smoky peat comes in then hints of burnt white bread toast and sweet dark fruits mixing with tannic wine notes, deep and rich vanilla, red currants and tangy red berry sorbet, creamy and buttery and wood smoke smattering so in the background.

Wood smoke and spices, dark fruits and red berries and tangy sweet and drying berries, creamy and oily, full of berries and malty biscuits with vanilla Angel delight

Sweet tangy red berries
