Awe-inspiring Caledonian Scotch rising from the 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. Octomore 09.3 is a fantastic expression at 133 PPM, which makes it slightly milder than .1 and .2, but still magnificently peaty. This precious Spirit was made from the best Islay barley there is, distilled and filled into precisely 134 casks. Mostly second-fill, it's gently influenced by wood, letting through the lovely peat smoke. It's a testament to bold experimentation and betting on only the best, local ingredients. Limited to 18 thousand bottles, 09.3 spent five years in a combination of ex-American oak and French wine casks. It's as Gaelic as it gets and if you listen closely, you'll hear the Caledonian calls for freedom.
