Yeah that sounds about right. I remember it as 90%. I note it now retails at £50-60 these days, which is a bit much.
Aged for 3 years in a 50/50 mix of new oak and bourbon barrels. This is the first quad-distilled whisky in Scotland for centuries. It was in 1695 when Martin Martin, explorer of the west of Scotland, wrote in his diary: "Their plenty of corn was such, as disposed the natives to brew several sorts of liquors, as common usquebaugh, another called trestarig, three times distilled, which is strong and hot; a third sort is four times distilled, and this by the natives is called usquebaugh-baul, which at first taste affects all the members of the body: two spoonfuls of this last liquor is a sufficient dose; and if any man exceed this, it would presently stop his breath, and endanger his life."
