Food & Spirits: The famed Bruichladdich distillery on Islay in Scotland has released the world's most heavily peated whisky ever, Octomore. The single malt Scotch whisky distilled at Bruichladdich from barley peated to 131 ppm is three times more peaty than any other whisky ever produced."That's a hell of a lot of smoke. The Scotch was made in the tall, narrow-necked Bruichladdich stills designed by the Harvey brothers in 1884 to make the purest spirit possible.

The Bruichladdich stills were run so slow to produce the Octomore that the condensers were not even needed. The hallmark Bruichladdich spirit fruit, free from medicinal character, comes through as a result. Young, powerful, and brash, the whisky is aptly described as an "iron fist in a velvet glove." Only 6,000 numbered bottles were produced at natural cask strength of 63.5% ABV. Naturally, distinctive packaging was needed for such a remarkable whisky, and the resulting matte black bottle makes it abundantly clear this is no ordinary Scotch.
