Bruichladdich Octomore 6.1 Heavily Peated Islay Single Malt Whisky 750ml (Previously $200)
Is this the last we'll see of Octomore in the U.S.? If the rumors are true Bruichladdich's plan is to take the peatiest whisky on the planet to travel retail/duty free outlets only. This new 6.1 release was distilled purely from Scottish-grown barley and run at a slow drip from Bruichladdich's special copper pot still. It is brimming with smoke, salt, and all of the high-toned spice one expects from the whisky, but it never sacrifices the elegance that separates it from the pack.
