Off topic

Not something I normally post about, but interesting all the same:

Bruichladdich distillery in Scotland has reportedly just quadruple distilled a batch of whiskey.
Why is it interesting?
The product distilled is 184 proof (92% alcohol) [read more]...

[check out their webcams!]
A 300 year old tasting notes describe the product as thus~

"… the first taste affects all the members of the body: two spoonfuls of this last liquor is a sufficient dose; and if any man should exceed this, it would presently stop his breath, and endanger his life.”

The Associated Press quotes Mark Reynier, managing director of the distillery, that it was produced "purely for fun"...
Yeah, it sounds like a blast.
