A Scottish distillery is going to revive a 184 proof whisky... "purely for fun." Bruichladdich distillery has decided to revive a recipe for a spirit known in the Gaelic language as usquebaugh-baul, or "perilous water of life."

"Purely for fun... perilous water of life..." Yeah, sounds like a blast. "Ha, hah! He's going into convulsions!!!" "Ah shit... he's in a coma..."

I've gotta order me some o' dat...

I've already been asked to order a bottle for a friend in San Francisco!

Seems to have made more news on that side of the atlantic than this one..

Man, we gotta come up with some "uber cool" names for average folk that make "water of life" in the stills of the south. They didn't never stop with their recipe. They're just refinin' it. If we don't, everybody just thinks we're RedNeck's.

If Eric shows up to help you with that bottle, beware of what he's totin' up to you with him. It might just be a clearer "water of life"...

And just because you can never have enough volunteers, I'm tossing my hat into the "helping out" ring :-)
