Character - Refined, confident, a little extra age has tempered some of the vitality but this dram has gained a classic, timeless feel.
Aroma - Initially smoke, tar, peat ash hint of muddiness / wet peat moss. Candied orange, pepper, chocolate, macaroon, vanilla fudge and lemon meringue pie.
Taste - Liquid gold, soft and delicate texture from slow distillation. Superb fruit / smoke combination. On the lips there is soft kiss of salt spray, ozone fresh. Sweet oak gives vanilla, fudge, marzipan and walnut. Melon and citrus come through on a floral breeze. May layers, there is a lot to find in this Octomore.
Finish - Dry peat smoke, iodine and oak sweetness combine. Hints of mint and bog myrtle fade with the lingering peat smoke, as ever, the last flavour to go.
Colour - Winter sun, crisp and bright
