TASTING NOTES – BRUICHLADDICH OCTOMORE 08.3 5 YEARS OLD
Overall, the Bruichladdich Octomore 08.3 5 Years Old is an explosive whisky but this is the type of product that you love it or you hate it. It’s kinda impossible to remain neutral when sipping this Scotch. The smoky notes tend to cover the whole aromatic bouquet and you have to be a lover of this flavor to appreciate this. It needs some time in the glass to be fully enjoyed, and some time means more than 15 minutes.
