A distillery in Scotland is planning on reviving a recipe for a 184 proof whiskey that was once described by a 17th century writer as being lethal if more than 2 teaspoons were drank.
A Scottish distillery said Monday it was reviving a centuries-old recipe for whisky so strong that one 17th-century writer feared more than two spoonfuls could be lethal.

Risk-taking whisky connoisseurs will have to wait, however -- the spirit will not be ready for at least 10 years.

The Bruichladdich distillery on the Isle of Islay, off Scotland's west coast, is producing the quadruple-distilled 184-proof -- or 92 percent alcohol -- spirit "purely for fun," managing director Mark Reynier said.
