Someone's told me today that

I had had already finished

is grammatically correct and it means:

In the past, I had already finished.

Is this grammatically correct? I feel like past perfect is enough and I've never seen two had followed by yet another verb.

"I had had already finished" is not correct. "I had already finished" is what you mean. However you can say "I had had", as in for example "by midnight I had had enough to eat." You are telling someone about an action which was complete at some time in the past.
