product Details

Bruichladdich 2005 Friends of Bruichladdich Valinch 16 Year Old #977 / Signed

Like its Islay neighbour Bunnahabhain, 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. More recent versions have also been hand-filled by distillery visitors.

This was distilled on 18th July 2005 and aged for 16 years in single sherry cask #977.

One of 830 bottles. Bottle is signed, however signature is illegible.
