Sweet and smoky on the nose, not overwhelming peat smoke but similar to lingering bonfire smoke. Elements of grass and brine. The palate is again smoky which slightly overshadows the sherry notes, more like a charred vanilla. Sweet and peaty finish throught leading to a mild ash aftertaste. Lots going on within the glass here. Much to recommend.

A very intriguing delivery from A.D Rattray this week. The Octave Project comprises a single barrel of whisky subdivided into a variety of specially constructed octave casks. Expect a full comparative feature soon.
