Where there’s Octomore, there’s smoke.

The Bruichladdich (brook-ladie) distillery’s history goes back to the 1880s when the Harvey brothers decided to make Whisky. It went through its renaissance in 2000 when a group of Whisky lovers revived it and got an esteemed Master Distiller Jim McEwan on board. Now, they produce 1.5 million liters of Scotch every year and each bottle is its own story. The people who make Bruichladdich Whisky are tough, stubborn and hard-working like their ancestors, but they are also nonconformist and believing in authenticity, they take risks and push the boundaries all the time. Now, the Spirit magicians of the Western Isles conjured something very special.

Octomore is a special line of superb peated Whiskies and the lads of Bruichladdich manages to trap the elusive smoke from the antediluvian subterranean world and use it to make an immensely elegant and subtle Scotch when you'd expect something aggressive and violent. At its 156 PPM, Octomore 09.1 is one of the most peated Whiskies and it's unlike anything you've tasted before. It's bold and breathtaking, aged for five years ex-American Whiskey casks, and limited to only 42 thousand bottles. It has a sleek and mature character that will treat you like a gentleman. Octomore's second name is Dialogos and a glass of this beauty will surely start a conversation.

Scotch Whisky is almost never aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation, while many times ageing process and flavour finishing is concluded in various wine casks, such as sherry or port.

Justin,
After drinking this some more, I've come to appreciate it more. It's still a bit overpowering, but that's what you get with cask strength scotch. This is a great follow up drink if you been drinking other smokey scotch. Have a nice Laphroaig, Lagavulin, Ardbeg, or Caol Ila before drinking this to get your palette headed in the right direction.

Justin,
Is it good? Yeah, it's good if you like smokey scotch, but it's a bit of one-trick pony and it's hard to justify the steep price. If you want over-the-top phenol to the max, this is for you. If you want something more subtle and complex in the same wheelhouse, check out the Laphroaig, Ardbeg, Caol Ila, or the Lagavulin. If you want something smokey and over the top, but much more affordable, try a blend like Peat Monster, Smokehead, or Smokey Joe.
