Distiller To Release 184 Proof Whisky

That's Some Strong Whisky!A Scottish distillery has announced that it will release an incredibly strong whisky (we're talking 184 proof, or 92 percent alcohol) and everyone in the world is all excited about it. Or it seems that way anyway - we've gotten tons of notes about this stuff, and there are stories about it all over the Internets. We can understand your excitement, but we were more than a bit nervous when we read that drinking more than two spoonfuls could end your life. We mean, who can stop after only a couple swallows?

Sounds like this is going to be another one of those crazy expensive Scotches we keep reading about - and don't expect a review from us any too soon unless you'd like to see us in a coma.

A distillery in Scotland is planning to produce the world's strongest whisky. The single-malt whisky will be distilled four times, while whisky is ordinarily distilled only twice. At 92 percent alcohol, the malt will have more than double the alcohol content of ordinary whiskies. The distillery is engaging in the project in an attempt to replicate the Scottish drink described in a 1695 travel book, The Western Isles of Scotland, which contains what is considered to be the world's oldest whisky-tasting note.

The book also includes a warning that the drink takes effect immediately, so by imbibing any more than two spoonfuls, "it would presently stop his breath and endanger his life". Despite the warning, the distillery manager believes that the whisky will have a floral note to it. They expect to produce approximately 5000 bottles.
