    New Bruichladdich Expressions coming

    Haven't visited the Bruichladdich site in a while and it appears that some interesting Bruichladdich malts coming down the pipelines - looks like they're differentiating "Scottish" vs. "Islay" Barley thing:

    PC (NSA) Heavily Peated Scottish Barley:

    For the Bruichladdich's, it appears that the 10yr is no more...

    Bruichladdich Classic Organic (Scottish Barley):

    A little disappointing that the age-statements are dropping but not entirely unexpected given the recent sale.

    ugh to no more 10. They just got there! That was far too short lived.

    No definitive news on that: internet/twitter rumors (heard from insiders) suggested the 10 is being discontinued, distillery reps on twitter reported it to be false. Time will tell ...

    To the OP: same old news ... more NAS whisky!

    I will probably buy a PC11 if it's not too expensive. I've enjoyed all the previous releases, and I'm not about to stop now!

    I still haven't been tempted by any of the Octomores.

    Can't say I'll really miss the Laddies. The 10 was OK, but the 16 and 22 were pretty meh for the hefty pricetag.

    I thought this one was to be duty-free only.

    I had a chance to taste the PC10 at a local store selling it for $60 a bottle and it was very tasty at that price. In fact I'll probably buy a couple more just to have on hand. Not sure I'd be as interested if the price was north of $100 like a lot of the PC releases I've seen.

    Was this the Port Charlotte 10 year or the PC10 "Tro Na Linntean" at 59.8%? If it's really the PC10 then it must be a pricing mistake, as that is below wholesale. Actually the first time I tried to buy the PC10, it was priced in the $60 range, and thinking I was getting a great deal, bought two. When they showed up, I ended up with two bottles of the Port Charlotte 10 year. They made it right, but it's very confusing for them to do that.

    Anecdotally, the new expressions have hit the shelves (PC Scottish Barley, etc.) here in Connecticut, but the 10 is disappearing fast and/or already gone from most stores. Really does seem like it's being discontinued.
