Now, here's a claim you don't hear very often: World's peatiest whisky.
That's the claim for Octomore, a limited expression from the the Bruichladdich distillery on Islay, which also produces the world's strongest single malt Scotch whisky ever made, at 90% alcohol by volume (180 proof).
Octomore is distilled from barley peated to 131 parts per million, which makes it three times peatier than any other whisky ever produced.
The folks at Bruichladdich (pronounced brook-laddie) call Octomore "an iron fist in a velvet glove."
Only 6,000 numbered bottles were produced at natural cask strength of 63.5% ABV (127 proof). It is delivered in a matte black bottle and container sleeve to match.
