If you have followed my blog for any length of time, you know that I dearly love Bruichladdich Octomore hyper-peated malt whisky. I bought a bottle of the Octomore 6.3 and 7.1 from thewhiskyexchange (could not find locally here in Texas) and ended up buying a second bottle of the 6.3 to hold in reserve. The 7.1 was good, just not 6.3 good. I haven’t found 7.3 online yet, but I will most defiantly be searching for it.
Mark at malt-review.com just reviewed Octomore 7.3 Check it out
As it stands, the Octomore 7.3 is still very good. I liked 6.3 – I like this one a lot more. It’s lost the earthiness and replaced it with more elegance. And it’s the first Octomore I might consider as a more social, sharing, great night dram – as opposed to something more brooding and introverted, which have felt typical for the rest of the range.
I am looking forward to finding me some 7.3 🙂
As much of a fan of smoky, peaty whisky that I am, I realize that smoky whisky may not be for you. For those of you that do not like smoky whisky (or even if you do like it), I encourage to first read my OCTOMORE 6.3 post, followed by my OCTO X Whiskey Review post. I hope you will get a chuckle.
