Bruichladdich 1989 Valinch 20 Year Old Rum Cask Finish / Feis Ile 2010
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.
The Valinch bottlings are 50cl single cask releases, available exclusively from the distillery. Later versions have also been hand-filled by distillery visitors.
This whisky was distilled in 1989 and aged in a single cask before being finished in a rum barrel.
One of 105 bottles produced to celebrate the Rum Masterclass at the 2010 Islay festival.
