Bruichladdich 1992 Douglas Clyne Valinch 23 Year Old / Figuero Finish

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 & 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. More recent versions have also been hand-filled by distillery visitors.

Distilled in 1992 and matured in bourbon barrel, this was finished in a Figuero cask. A 22 year old, it was bottled with the image of Douglas Clyne, Bruichladdich's Engineer.

One of 396.
