Launched at The Whisky Show 2014, the first bottling of super-heavily peated Octomore made with Islay barley is peated to a whopping 258ppm (parts per million), and unsurprisingly, this big-hearted dram is bursting with life.

    Kevin K,

    This whisky is a contradiction within itself. It starts as the most heavily peated whisky in the world with malted barley at 258ppm phenols, but the final spirit is IMO around 40ppm. The COATLINE is long lasting and the legs are thin as expected with a young whisky. Nose is as Stuart P suggest germonline predominantly, with peat in the background. Fruity aromas also. Palate is again suggestive of germonline as I imagine it would taste. Fruitiness certainly present. Peat is strong. Finish is long and peaty with chilli. In nose palate and finish the bonfire and burnt firewood of the Kildaltons is absent The contradiction lies in the distilling of this whisky. Tall stills with long necks produce s very refined whisky. Bruichladdich, unlike Ardbeg with is smaller, only 12 ft, dumpy stills and restricted neck is ideal to retain the peatiness. OCTOMORE. A bit like trying to build a Rolls Royce in a Ferrari factory.

    Hud,

    Stunning, wow! New to whisky so before this had tried Jack Daniels, Ardbeg 10 year, Jura Superstition, Port Dundas 1978 single grain, all good. But this just blew me away, the peat is super-smoky, the after-taste is magnificent, just lingers beautifully for ten seconds or more, the initial first few seconds is a complex bouquet leaving you wondering how they ever made this! Buy it.

    Janne from Sweden,

    Very nice. The smoketaste comes a bit after the alcohol and it rolls out from the back of your mouth, almost like it comes from the belly. Don?t spoil it with water, drink it strait. Don?t think, just order it. Worth every penny, belive me. I wonder what the lads at laddie?s are planning next.
