Octomore 140 parts per million!

I know this is a pointless post as most places have probably already sold out of this second batch of Octomore. They say it is peated to 140 ppm this really must be rocket fuel! At what stage does the peating level become so much that it akes no difference but it just over powers everything!

What my real concern is that can a 5 year old whisky really justify a £80.00 price tag. Obviously as places like royal mile whiskies have already sold out then surely it can. But say a Bunna 5yo came out or a Benromach or any other distillery for that fact bar maybe Ardbeg everybody would be up in arms about the price.

Anyway rant over.

To be candid i don't know the actual price of this brand.But i look forward to buy one and taste it as early as possible.Whatever i feel a Cohiba Cigar along with this brand will make the evening more special with some of my friends.
