The late 2012 release under Bruichladdich's Octomore label, peated to a fairly astounding 169ppm. Expect fire from the cask strength and lots of smoke, but also some elegance hiding behind the fireworks. As ever the producer's notes (below) are well worth a read.
A 1980 vintage Glen Grant 5 year old. There are many independent bottlings of Glen Grant at ages of well over 30 years, but distillery bottlings rarely get past 12 years old. This dates from a time when 5 year old bottlings were prevalent, in stark contrast to today.
A very limited edition (just 210 bottles) release from The English Whisky Company. This expression was aged for 5 years and 9 months in a port cask and is presented in an Ibisco decanter and accompanying wooden box.
More smoky insanity from the folks at Bruichladdich, this time with the barley peated to 167ppm. This Octomore is named for Comus, the son of Bacchus (the Roman god of wine and partying), and has been finished in a Sauternes cask. This is limited to 2 bottles per customer
The 4th edition of Bruichladdich's over the top, super-peaty whisky - Octomore. This one has topped previous efforts and comes in at a frankly silly 167ppm, making it the peatiest whisky in the world at release. One for those who like a little smoke in their dram...
The third annual release of 'normal' Octomore has arrived - unlike the previous bottling, Orpheus, this has not been wine-finished and, at 152ppm, is said to be most heavily-peated Octomore released so far.
Please note this is limited to 1 bottle per customer.
