Octomore 4.1 Review

Octomore 4.1 Thanks again to Jon (@dvdbloke) from the Scotch and Sci-Fi blog for this sample also, another Huge hitting dram.

Again the smoke is not as huge as you would expect, it’s softened by some fabulous spicy, oaky, bbq notes that give off a chalkiness in the peat.

There’s something almost Edinburgh rock like in this and i like it, a lot.

Thanks again to Jon (@dvdbloke) for the sample.
