Octomore 6.1 Review

Octomore 6.1 Thanks to Yoav (@yoavgel) from Whisky Gospel for this sample of Octomore 6.1.

More of that vegetal, honey roast vegetables and moss, lots of chalky smoke, and then the curve ball of fruity notes including lychee on the palate.

This is sweet and to my taste, i might have found a preference.

Thanks again to Yoav (@yoavgel) for the sample.

Tasting Notes & Details


Huge sweet heather smoke, reminds me a little of the smell of burning heather but with honey roast vegetables added too, light fresh fruity notes of melon and lychee and chalky Edinburgh rock in here too


Sweet and smoky, overlooked buttery toast and spicy onion chutney with sweet melon and lychee sauce and crushed Edinburgh rock


Sweet, spicy, smoky, chalky
