Top reviews for Bruichladdich Octomore 06.1:

— Like drinking the best BBQ. Too pricey to enjoy all the time.

— So far, anything Octomore is a 10 for me. I love peat. I can't believe how balanced the Octomores are for how young they are. Where's the Octomore 7.1 on the list? I couldn't add it to my collection but it's one of my favorite bottles.

— This tastes like the smoking man walking through a forest fire set off by volcanic ash into a field of burning vanilla plants - but in a good way. Smoke builds and builds with a pleasant sweetness underneath.

Consumed neat. Peat, peat, peat! Yet the whisky is well-balanced and smells amazing!

Sure, it's smoky. You smell it as soon as you open the bottle. It isn't like normal peat, though. It is more like a BBQ smoke. And the flavor is much more sweet than smoky. This is really a fine dram.

Very peaty. Enjoyed it but it was more of a "tried it" and have a hard time imagining keeping a bottle around to enjoy. It's definitely worth a taste!

I have the 6.2 edition. Even though extremely heavily peated, still drinks easily. The cask strength also adds to its uniqueness and character. I love it!
