Octomore Discovery This Octomore 1695 Discovery is a 7 year old Octomore bottled (well only 1695 bottles) for Feis Ile in 2014 at a whopping 69.5%

This Octomore was distilled four times making it part of the X4 series and matured in Oloroso sherry casks.

This is delicious, the nose is utterly outstanding and you can't help,but continue to over and over again smell this dram.

Massively privileged to,have have tried this thanks to Ansgar Speller (@ansgarspeller) and Thomas Speller (@thomas_speller) from the Whisky Speller blog

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

I spent 5 minutes sticking my nose in and out of the glass saying wow, the nose is creamy and sweet, smoky and gentle, there's, understandably, a spike of alcohol, citrus fruit peel and some crushed cornflakes and a hint of cold porridge

Palate

Creamy and sweet, fresh juicy sweet pears and a hint of pear drops, earthy smoke that pops in and out playing hide and seek, light and gentle considering the abv

Finish

Long lasting best smooth and sweet.
