Octomore OBA Concept Review

Octomore OBA Concept This Octomore OBA Concept is what everyone was waiting for. A Bruichladdich Black Art but in octomore guise.

Theres no details about the cask makeup or anything else for that matter on this dram, it's just out there to let people make up their own mind, something i quite like.

Theres a huge ashy smoke hit to begin with, but then it is an Octomore, so what else would you expect, seafood, honeycomb and banana make up a lot of the other notes, this is a tasty dram and one that many people will love, if you love a huge bit of smoke, then this, if you can find one, is outstanding.

A new set of Octomores are on route, check your local specialist retailer for more details.
