Jura 1989 21 Year Old Eilean Ban Description

This hard-to-find whisky was created by Willie Tait and Nial Mackinlay, former Distillery and Brand managers for Jura, after a walk and conversation on the Paps of Jura. Eilean Ban means 'White Island' in Gaelic.

This expression was distilled on 23rd November 1989 and matured for 14 years in American oak, before being finished for 7 more years in European Oak. It was then hand-bottled on Jura by Willie, Nial, and their respective extended families on 27th November 2010. Just 275 bottles were produced, with no bottle ever being sold outside of the family! 

Fun Fact: Doddie was 21 when he scored his first try in the Scotland vs Zimbabwe game during the 1991 Rugby World Cup!

Bonus Fun Fact: This is bottle #84, which was picked by Nial with the key date 1984 in mind - '1984' as the title of George Orwell's world-famous book, which he wrote on Jura, and '84 also being the year Scotland won the Grand Slam in the Five Nations!

Each winner of a bottle from Doddie's auction will receive two complimentary Glencairn glasses, branded with the My Name'5 Doddie Foundation logo (pictured on homepage)!

This bottle has been personally donated by Nial Mackinlay.

Doddie Weir OBE is one of rugby’s most recognizable personalities. He earned 61 caps for Scotland during a successful playing career.

Doddie is now facing his biggest challenge. In June 2017 the Scot revealed he was suffering from Motor Neuron Disease. From the outset, Doddie has been driven to help fellow sufferers and seek ways to further research into this, as yet, incurable disease.

In November 2017 Doddie and his Trustees launched the registered charity My Name’5 Doddie Foundation. Its aims are simple: to raise funds to aid research into the causes of Motor Neuron Disease and investigate potential cures; to make grants to individuals suffering from MND, to enable them to live as fulfilled a life as possible.
