GEO Brandy XO

Tasting note for: Octomore 06.3 Single Islay Barley Islay Malt Whisky, Bruichladdich Distillery, Islay, Scotland.
If you have to make a choice between Octomore 06.1 and 06.3, then it has to be the 06.3. Why? The 06.3 with its Islay barley delivers a dram that sings of Islay’s salty terroir. Add a tiny splash of water and this smoky blockbuster turns into an elegant honeyed dram threaded with heather and vanilla and finished with a salty peaty lick. Once swallowed your palate is pleading for an encore or two! Reviewed by Martin Isark 

Tasting note for: Octomore 06.1_167 Single Islay Malt Whisky, Bruichladdich Distillery, Islay, Scotland
A smoky blockbuster dram, that’s pure palate art for the Islay whisky aficionado.  It is a high octane, super heavily peated malt that does NOT pound your palate into a state of shock, but has your tastebuds turning somersaults with its full-on flavour. Once swallowed your palate is pleading more! Reviewed by Martin Isark
