A quadruple (!) distilled Octomore, this dangerous, perilous 'usquebaugh-baul' came off the still at 89% abv but has retained an extraordinary amount of flavour. Just 1,695 bottles have been released, a nod to the fact that usquebaugh-baul was last created back in 1695.
This bottle was part of a private collection - if you'd like more detailed info and/or photos just get in touch!
Nose: Totally approachable, you'd never guess it was 69.4%. Lemon cake, sugar cane, candied orange zest, new leather and school paint blocks. Only hints of peat until you add some water and it absolutely pounces on you along with some flamed lemon peel.
Palate: Again this is all about zesty lemon drizzle cake and a bit of peat until water reveals the peat beast below. Even when the peat comes through it’s still light though, having come off the still at 89%!
Finish: Long lasting and pleasant light peat madness.
Overall: Complex high notes, unique (and I mean that it an entirely good way) and pretty awesome.

This is extraordinary stuff. It's way beyond the established realms of whisky and there's nothing even close to being similar enough to draw comparisons.For me, this is Jim McEwan's last hurrah - the ultimate experiment.
