Lefty, If I understand this correctly, it will take between 3 and 7 years before we see 'our' whisky. Is that correct? How do you intend to keep track of everyone over this period?

I'm definitely interested (will confirm soon) and would prefer a peaty whisky - my favourites are Laphroig, Lagavulin, Talisker, Oban, Bowmore and I could go on - just to give you an indication. Would that make me Sherry or Bourbon cask?
Interesting point.

Probably not via PH. Email once a year probably when the samples come out. It would have to be the responsibility of the members to let me know if you change email address, move house or whatever.

I'll give everyone my home address, phone numbers, various email addresses etc and I'll need the same from everyone else.

I'll send copies of the receipt and paperwork to everyone and, of course, anyone can visit the distillery to see the cask wink

OK, is everyone still interested if there are ten takers? That makes it between 5 or 6 bottles each for £70 (assuming we go for a peated sherry, which would be my preference.)

Do it. We'll work out how to keep track of people somehow.

Hi there,

Yep, still in. Peated Sherry sounds like the one to me.

I'm in !

Also without wanting to push it I would be tempted with another slot picking a different cask ?
Don't want to make it complicated but if we are approaching 10+ people and keep it to 7 a cask then we could get 2 casks if we can get couple more interested ?
I would take a slot in each cask ? (I bet you are tempted Lefty ?)
What do we think ?

I'd like in too; I'd take a couple of slots if it helps to make the numbers for multiple casks.lick

Hey, 2 casks is fine with me if we have enough people.

I suggest we leave it a few more days to see if anyone else wants in (and gets permission from their OH, eh Mr D?)

What's the suggestion for another cask? I may be interested in a share of each cask, but certainly for one!

Lefty - that explains why I have not seen it about recently! :lol:

As for the casks, if we are going for two different ones, you can put me down for one of each!

I'm easy with regard to the choices of the second cask. Peated sherry sounds good. As for the second, something with a coastal twang to it if that is possible?

PH name Cask 1 (peated sherry) Cask 2?

Coneyhurst Blue 1

S6PNJ 1
FunkyGibbon 1

[b]Total[b/] 12


Being totally selfish I would prefer bourbon (peated or unpeated) for cask 2 but if people want unpeated sherry I'd be quite happy (but wouldn't take a share since I've already got one. cloud9)

I think 12 is probably a bit too much for one cask so can those who would prefer something other than peated sherry change the table above and paste it in a new post. Oh and for those who want a share of each can you edit the table and repost?

Ta.
