I've tried it again now, with and without water, and there's still no peat. So I try PC6, which I know to be peaty, and there's none there either.
Darn it! My peat receptors seem to be on the blink. Does anyone know of a good method to get them going again?

You want to see the Octomore at higher proof but with a few more years under its belt? Given that it's bottled at cask strength, how do you reckon they'll accomplish that?
Ganga wrote:SKU, the Octomore Futures was not bottled at cask strength. It was bottled at 46% and if recollection serves, under 6 yo. Supernova was at cask strength of 58.9% Both are still young and probably would be very nice at say around 10 yo of age and roughly 50+%.
Thanks Ganga, sorry I missed that you were talking about the futures bottling. Have you tried the standard bottling, which is cask strength (63.5% abv)?

Nose: new leather shoes and polish, charred or toasted grains, light solvency, some roasted seaweed
Palate: oily, diesel, charred oak, roasted barley, some iodine
Finish: long, oily, grainy
Having tasted all three now, how would you compare it to the Futures bottling and the Supernova?
