If you add some nutrients, and keep it happy, it might go as low as 1.040.
The ending gravity is a function of where it starts. All yeast will die of alcohol poisoning at some point. Some strains will go to 12-14%, some will go up to 18%, and may even surpass 18%. But it's usually through some pampering to get there, and not starting at a high OG which stresses them.
Next batch, start with an OG of 1.085-1.100 and you'll end up with a more predictable finish.
