Isnt it something to do with Murray mcDavid who also tend to ask a high price for their albeit often excellent malts.

Ewan McGregor, er sorry, Jim McEwan of Bruichladdich and Murray McDavid fame selected the casks. More details are available at the Bruichladdich site or

Hi there,

I think it has to do with the often exorbitant age of the malts. If you look at the strength you will find malts with 40.1% or there about. Most of the casks are from the 1960s.
The bottles with the Celtic symbols and the high quality boxes do the rest.
