The annual Whisky Fringe tasting, organised by Royal Mile Whiskies, took place recently at the old church of Mansfield Traquair during the Edinburgh Festival.
Around 200 whiskies were available for tasting by members of the public and all visitors were given the chance to vote for their favourite spirit.
PC8, heavily peated Bruichladdich to the tune of 40 ppm's worth, was voted by the general public as the Spirit of Whisky Fringe 2009, and awarded the trophy.
Bruichladdich has been well received by Edinburgh's whisky fans. In the last three years it has won this trophy twice and came second once.
This achievement was all the more impressive as this 8 year old whisky was up against contenders that were considerably older, in some cases four times the age.
PC8 is the fourth and final release in the dramatic 6 tin image series. The picture tins, having featured the distiller, his team, Islay people, now showcase Islay's heritage.
