Wither Octomore?


Way back when... Bruichladdich distilled on the 3rd of October, 2002 a whisky called Octomore. It was billed as having the world's most heavily peated content with a phenolic content of 80.5 parts per million. The production was strictly limited to 800 cases and I have number 343. Jim McEwan anticipates that this dram will need at least eight years in cask before it is ready to be bottled. So I am looking at, at least, another 4 1/2 years.
Has anyone heard any mumblings, rumblings, or bumblings about the progress of this whisky? Anyone else involved in the initial offering?

I'm prepared to extend the offer by collecting it myself, so you don't even have any petrol expense.
No, no, thank _you_.

Oh no. I could never do that to you. I live in Texas and the petrol cost to you would be horrific! Perhaps we should consider sharing a "virtual" dram when it is finally released?

Ah. Yes, that would be a _little_ bit out of my way..!
I'll hold you to that :-)
Is Octomore something they'll be doing regularly or was it one of their one offs?

I've heard nothing more about it, so I must assume that this was a one off project. Of course, we all know what happens when one assumes!
