Bruichladdich 2007 Gordon MacDougall Valinch 11 Year Old / PX Cask - Signed
Laddie Crew Valinch bottling #36 in honour of Assistant Distillery Manager Gordon MacDougall.
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.
This whisky was distilled on 4th April 2007 and laid to rest in Pedro Ximénez Cask #R1224600007 for 11 years. One of 846 bottles.
This particular bottle has been signed by Gordon MacDougall.
