Bruichladdich 1989 Robert Burns 250th Anniversary Valinch 50cl / Feis Ile 2009

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 on 6th August 1989 and laid to rest in a bourbon cask before being bottled in 2009 to celebrate both the 250th anniversary of Robert Burns and the Islay Festival that year.

One of 106 bottles.
