Bruichladdich Brews World's Peatiest Whisky
Octomore (right) is distilled from barley peated to 131 ppm, three times more peaty than any other whisky ever produced. Like all Bruichladdich whiskies it was made in distillery's tall, narrow-necked stills designed to make the purest spirit possible.
Young, powerful and brash, Octomore is described as "an iron fist in a velvet glove." Only 6,000 numbered bottles were produced at natural cask strength of 63.5% ABV, or 127-proof. For something that strong and smoky, a special matte black bottle was in order.
