What's in a name? Bruichladdich Octomore 06.1 5 Year Old Scottish Barley whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Bruichladdich Octomore 06.1 5 Year Old Scottish Barley whiskey, rather than whisky.
having wanted to try an octomore for ages, i finally got a bottle. sadly it didn't live up to my expectations. tip if you buy a bottle, it is much better when water is added, brings out a lot more flavour. Not usually a fan of adding water to whisky (a cask strength man usually)but this one really needs it.
