Octomore has had a second release of its 10-year-old whisky. Heavily peated to 167ppm this has been aged in a combination of bourbon barrels and Grenache-wine casks. Richly smoky, but balanced, this has notes of salted caramel, marzipan, vanilla and malted bread.

Formidable, as to be expected of Octomore, but not recklessly so. On the nose - woodsmoke is followed by salted caramel, dark chocolate, cured meats. Palate - heavy peat and rich malty breadiness is measured by hints of white grape, apple, sherry, dark chocolate, even some coconut from the American oak. Finish - very long, briny, phenolic, malty. Take smaller sips to coat the mouth and it does just fine without water, although a drop or two might help to open up its lighter notes for a tentative palate.
It's like the 5 year old, only richer and smoother, and therefore even better!
My favorite Octomore yet, after trying the 7.1, 7.2, and 8.3 previously. It's closest to the x.1 series in flavor profile but quite a bit softer and more refined thanks to twice the age. It's what the 7.1 and 7.2 could have been. (The 8.3 was terrific and different enough for me to consider picking one of those up at some point)
For a yank with a bourbon pallet,the Oct 10 was a sensory overload at first sip.After that sip,I wanted an engagement.Made the mistake of sharing with friends.They followed me around like a dog on beef.Truly a wonderful product! Wish it was available in the States...Thank You!!
