Description

The Octomore range has always played with the traditional ideas of what we expect from a big, smoky Islay dram. The 8.4 release has been matured in a combination of casks, including fresh virgin American oak, with have combined wonderfully with the smoke. This release was entirely matured on the Isle of Islay to add an extra layer of authenticity to an already amazing dram.
Tasting Notes
Official Tasting Notes
Nose: A little smoke but gentle and warm. The oak comes with honeyed malt and banana bread. The phenolic muddy notes come again now with a peppery, floral edge. With time the oak gives more and more, toffee popcorn, vanilla fudge, coconut and cinnamon. The smoke fades back a little now.
Palate: A rich texture feels like honey as it slowly builds the flavour of the sweet mellow oak. Leather and toasted wood combine with the delicate smoke. There is balance here as there is no oak notes without an equal and complimenting note from the smoke. Praline, coconut, clove are matched with barbeque, burnt heather and iodine. The spirit behind the smoke and oak brings a lemon and salt spray hit once opened with spring water as well as hints of mint and stewed apple.
Finish: Clove, aniseed and coffee grounds fade to peat smoke - the typical, classic Octomore that always lingers in your mind.
