The combination of the softer smoke and oak influence has created a sublime balance with tropical fruit notes.
Nose: Wisps of toasting oak, smouldering peat and ripe nectarine, passion fruit and lemon in syrup.
Palate: Rich, oily texture, hints of dryness from the oak but sugary sweet and fruity, lots of peach, jelly babies and dry smoke, classic Octomore sweet/smokey combinations encased in toasted oak.
Finish: The oak and smoke linger after all the remining notes fade, each one clear and crisp. Before they go head to head, there is honey and orange notes, and hints of clove that set off the finish.
