Top reviews for Bruichladdich Octomore 12.2:
― This is an unbelievable scotch. The peatiest whiskey I’ve ever had, but such a smooth, spicy, and sweet finish. There’s a wonderful earthy, oaky flavor to it as well. It’s a rare bottle, but if you can get your hands on it, it’s worth the price.
― Such a perfect balance of intense peat and fruity melon
― I wanted to like this immensely given the reviews, my experience with Bruichladdich, and well, the price. But, I came away not fully satisfied. It is a delicious peated scotch for sure. But, for the price, it is surprisingly not smooth. The high alcohol content is not well masked as other high-end cask-strength single malts. The alcohol taste is a bit offputting. With that said, it is a fine scotch - but I would not buy it again.
