That puts the stuff in the same class as Everclear at 190 Proof (95% alcohol).

I was just about the mention that. Brings back memories of college when friends who went to school in Colorado would smuggle it back to Hawaii for parties.

Gosh, was just at that distillery last fall.

It is a fascinating distillery that was out of business between 1995-2000, and is now trying to make a real go of it.

They were doing some interesting bottlings using casks purchased from other distilleries. Was able to taste a few whiskies that were out of this world.

This high proof sounds like a gimmick, but would give it a try. Those folk at the Bruichladdich distillery seemed really committed to quality.

Normally prefer whisky neat, or with one, relatively small ice cube. But definitely would dilute it a bit.

But sadly it probably will not be available for ten years at least, it has to age.

But very much enjoy Bruichladdich and loved our stay on Islay.
