This is Octomore “OBA” Concept. Power, finesse, depth, complexity, darkness, confusion, revelation, agony, ecstasy!
“Curiosity has led us to a release full of complexity; layered flavours that combine and overlap each other in a way we haven’t seen before in Octomore. The dark dried fruit and bitter chocolate combination on the nose is followed by an explosion on the palate. Dry peat smoke, spicy ginger, liquorice and then tea leaves and damp tobacco. Apricot and sea salt wrapped in a blanket of salty, smoky dried fruit. This whisky has deep, dark depths to discover.”
- Adam Hannett (Head Distiller)
Nose: Intense red fruits, cherries, blood-orange and raspberries. Then the sherry, with a vanilla sweetness. The slightest hint of smoked oak.
Palate: Malt and peat, beautifully balanced with the red fruits. Sherried fruits and notes of spice, , cinnamon and aromatic oak. Hints of rich, dark chocolate.
Finish: Rather long and pleasant, smoke is dominant.
