More smoky insanity from the folks at Bruichladdich, this time with the barley peated to 167ppm. This Octomore is named for Comus, the son of Bacchus (the Roman god of wine and partying), and has been finished in a Sauternes cask. Their tasting notes, reproduced below, are worth a read.

    Malcolm Goodman,

    Malcolm Goodman,

    I don't do reviews; I don't have the necessary vocabulary. I bought my bottle in April 2012 and still have about 20% left. This is not an indication of how little I enjoy drinking it, but more an indication of how rarely I feel I deserve it. I am surprised to see it is still available in this version. I am trying very hard not to persuade myself that I can afford its current price (with some help from my wife!) I'll have to make do with another glass or two on my 81st birthday. Keep up the good work.

    Malcolm Goodman,

    I have never enjoyed smoky, peaty whisky, I usually go for Speyside or Highland malts. I bought this Octomore 5yo a couple of years ago from TWE as a gift for my son in Australia. For some reason or other it failed to get into the suitcase. I opened it two hours ago - I''m a convert! My only regret is that my son hasn''t had (and won''t get) a taste of it. I am still enjoying my first drink now and won''t pour the second until the finish is finished. Are the later editions as amazing?

  • Nuno from Switzerland,

    I don't have the vocabulary to describe it like a professional but this is absolutely my favourite whisky. I thought my 1979 Port Ellen was perfect but when I tasted this 5 year old whisky mind just travelled to Islay. It's like magic in a bottle and very soon I'll buy a second one.

  • David,

    Bought a bottle and tasted it at a SWB tasting in Northern Cyprus. We awarded it top marks . It's an amazing dram. At the very front of the mouth you get this very sweet taste then slowly as it goes to the back of the mouth you gradually experienced the intense peat . It's a very special whiskey. Excellent
