Bruichladdich 1984 WMD Whisky of Mass Distinction

Back in 2003, Inverleven distillery was dismantled, some copper stills and distilling equipment were loaded to a boat which then travelled past Faslane (home of the UK's nuclear arsenal). 

The CIA got involved and began to investigate Bruichladdich for producing Weapons of Mass destruction. Bruichladdich smelled opportunity and got the media involved. This was released during the ensuing fee publicity.

Composed from the totally nonlethal combination of 60% Refill Bourbon barrels, 20% Refill Oloroso casks and 20% Refill Fino casks.

Bottle number 179 of 440 bottles.
