Branded as the world's most heavily peated whisky, Octomore is not for the faint of heart. Edition 07.1 combines 208 ppm, 59.5% ABV and 5 years of cask maturation in American oak. Mineral, fresh and less peated than expected, the nose unfolds with lemons, anise and fatty bacon. With a fiery blast of peat, the taste explodes on your palate: pepper, ash and spices conceal hints of sweetness, lime and mint. Intense, briny and slightly bitter, the finish hangs around for hours. The rawness and pure energy of this spirit are outstanding, but so is the price...

Comment: A velvet glove around an iron fist? Oh yes! Strong at the beginning, but smooth and satin at the end. Excellent whisky. Very unique and complex. Octomore is worth to try!

Finish: Really long

Comment: An instant peat hit! Very complex flavour moving through spiced oak with a slight chilli feel, to a prominent leather and malt note and onto an almost pine nut note. All with the sweetness of fresh fruit and a potent alcohol content.

English:
Color: amber-orange. Purely natural!
Nose: flowers, lemon, caramel, vanilla, smoke
Smoke however doesn't cover all the other beautiful aromas, besides of it's intensity
Palate: warming, sweet, very complex and very strong (59% ABV), butterscotch... generally, delicious. Peat doesn't dominate as strong as you could expect
Finish: hot, gasoline, backed nuts, sunflower, bitter chocolate, smoke
This whisky is very unique, but the price seems to be to high (Amazon.de 5yo whisky costs 129€). But it’s very fair: it has an age statement, it’s un-chill filtered and without chemical caramel in it.
90/100

Deutsch:
Farbe: Bernstein-Orange
Nase: Blumen, Zitrone, Karamell, Vanille, Rauch
Die Intensität den Rauchen ist nicht stärker als die alle anderen, wunderschöne Aromen, obwohl der Rauch ist sehr Stark da.
Körper: erwärmt, süß, sehr komplex und sehr intensiv (59%), Toffee... allgemein, Sehr lecker. Der Torf dominiert nicht so doll, wie man erwarten könnte
Finish: heiß, Benzin, geröstete Nüsse, Sonnenblumenkerne, Zartbitterschokolade, Rauch
Allgemein, dieser Whisky ist sehr außergewöhnlich, aber die Preis-Leistung sieht eher schlecht aus (Amazon.de Whisky, 5 Jahre alt kostet 129€). Aber es ist sehr FAIR: kein NAS Whisky, nicht kalt gefiltert und ohne Zuckerkolör
