Octomore Ten Years Dialogos

Peated Single Malt — Islay, Scotland

4.75 out of 5 stars
Nose: Campfire smoke immediately comes out with hints of butter and oil. Thre cognac brings about pineapple and plantain mix with black tea leaves and dark red apples. An industrial scent, similar to the smell of a permanent marker lingers. Palate: Peat goes without saying, but with an ashy complement. Cola syrup follows through with bitter dark chocolates and tobacco leaves. Much less oily than the nose let's on with leathery notes and the the typical bruicchladich blue cheese. Chili flakes and cinnamon become apparent. The fruits are admittedly more difficult to pick out, but sultanas and apricots linger slightly. Finish: Very long-lasting with the dark chocolate notes lasting along with cigar and smoke.
