Tasting Notes

"The nose is a bit of a "potpourri" with masses of floral and fruity notes. The Octomore signature peaty/smoky aroma, is fairly gentle considering the impressive PPM level. The palate is incredibly complex and ever-changing with new flavors appearing at all times. Apart from the obvious smokiness: citrus-y notes, lime cake, tropical fruits, oak, bay leaf, and rosemary honey to name but a few! This Octomore is seriously impressive. "
