Bruichladdich 1965 Riserva Veronelli 22 Year Old / Rinaldi Import
Like its island neighbour Bunnahabhain distillery, Bruichladdich has traditionally been an un-peated single malt, mostly owing to its requirements by the blenders who owned it. The last of these was Whyte and Mackay, who eventually shut it down in 1995, deeming it surplus to requirements. They sold the distillery to Murray McDavid in 2001, who launched the peated Port Charlotte and heavily-peated Octomore single malts in 2006 and 2008. A recommissioned Lomond still also now produces the popular Botanist gin there.
This is a rare distillery bottling of Bruichladdich from the Whyte & Mackay era, bottled from the special reserves of Luigi Veronelli, who also had some highly collectible rum bottled for him in the 1980s.
Distilled in 1965 and bottled at 22 years old.
Imported for Veronelli by Fratelli Rinaldi, who acquired the Bruichladdich distribution license from Moon Import in the mid-1980s.
