    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:

    PC (NSA) Heavily Peated Islay Barley:

    PC11:

    Octomore 6.3 (Islay Barley):

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

    Bruichladdich Classic (Scottish Barley):

    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.

    That Octomore 6.2 really interests me and the PC11 is on my list as well.

    Does Octomore change expression to expression?

    I haven't had all of them so I don't know. Some releases yield a bourbon barreled version and a wine cask/other matured/finished version.

    E.g.

    2.1 = bourbon barrel, 2.2 = wine finished (Chateau Petrus)

    4.1 = bourbon barrel, 4.2 = Sauternes finished (Chateau d'Yquem)

    I have a 2.2 open and I really enjoy it - I've also found that I enjoy Cognac finished expressions so that 6.2 really piques my interest.

    In short, the finished expressions are different simply because of their nature and I guess the X.1 releases are different in the same way the PCX releases vary from year to year.

    I have a feeling Bruichladdich 16 year old is going to be discontinued in the immediate future but I find it hard to believe the 10 will be going away too.

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