The malt was sourced from PE Maltings, and was destined for Bowmore, thereby having a phenol level of 25ppm. The distillery men from Jura were using it to make a small production run at Bruichladdich, which at the time (1998) was mothballed.

I remember too, but can't find it either. The search function wasn't at much help in this case.
But anyway - I find it a nice malt too
The malts used for 3D were:
2001 Port Charlotte 40ppm
1998 Bruichladdich 25ppm
1989 Bruichladdich <5ppm
In the Moine Mhor the ingredients differ, since the 1998 25ppm is replaced by new Bruichladdich 2001 10ppm* and the amount of Port Charlotte is likely to be a bit higher.
[*:The first production of the new owners were peated at 10ppm, but later reduced to around 3ppm.]
I don't think it contains any Octomore though, but I might be wrong
