Following on from the now legendary Octomore Orpheus, the now legendary Jim McEwan has created another landmark Octomore.
Comus was the son of Bachhus [god of wine and revelling] and Circe, daughter of Helios the sun god, and a sorceress who would beguile the innocent into drinking her magic potions.
"Comus" was a play written by poet John Milton and first performed in 1634 at Ludlow Castle, England. The work presents the desperate battle by Comus to ensnare a beautiful, innocent girl and through the hedonistic power of his magic potions - "his orient potions in a crystal glass" - rob her of her virginity. A philosophical discourse on the battle between sensual pleasure and physical abandon, and reason and virtue.
All very Bruichladdich. In this Octomore 4.2 "Comus" we see this same duality the interplay between the brooding power of the exceptional Octomore peat and the sublime elegance of casks that previously held the world's greatest sweet wine.
Hence the white, virginal, innocent packaging - but like our heroine, do not be deceived... all is not what it seems.
