You gotta love Bruichladdich's copy writers - they make a humble auctioneer's work so much easier! From the Laddie's website:

Legend, quite literally. The extraordinarily haunting, towering Octomore spirit, again at 140ppm, but this time further matured in exceptional French oak casks uniquely supplied to us by the stellar Bordeaux Chateau, Petrus.

The result is quite extraordinary – elegant peat smoke with lingering fruit, a coating of heathery honey and grind of black pepper for good measure. Quite unique.

Jim Murray's Single Malt of the Year (multiple cask) 2010 - and at five years' old!

The red tin symbolises the flames of Hell which Orpheus battled to rescue his wife from the god of the underworld.

To be "Orphic" is to be mystic, fascinating and entrancing, for he was believed to have discovered mysteries, purification from sins, and by music, the means of averting the wrath of the gods. Truly, this is Octomore.
