Lefty should have my money now too smile

Any idea how many bottles we're expecting if there are 10 of us in? I may be open to sharing my slot on the unpeated bourbon.
Depends a lot on evaporation and how long we leave them.

Probably 50-60 bottles so 5 or 6 each, a manageable number!

But with 7 casks on the go...that's a lot of whisky!

Might as well hehe but I too have no idea what I am down for! Be a nice surprise when they start arriving which must be soon now yes

Must add huge thanks to those who offered "ins" on the ones I missed out on and especially to hidetheelephants who has offered me half of each of his! Thanks mate, much appreciated.

Did you ever think you'd get so many casks on the go Lefty? smile

Out of interest, which other distilleries do cask sales? Especially at a sub-£1000 level!

None that I know of frown

Pretty much all will sell a barrel, hoggy or butt but for a fair bit more than a grand.

I meant in a similar vein to what we're doing now. Buying a barrel of maturing spirit. I know Bruichladdich used to, but if others do then they keep it quiet!

I'm also now a wee bit gutted I didn't grab a bruichladdich cask while I could!

I think we might need to open a swap shop when they are ready. Would be nice to try some of the other casks.

Money's on its way, Lefty.

Now to think up a good excuse for the other half as to why I've just sent some cash to a man on the internet - who's full name I don't even know - for a commodity (that'll fool her) that I won't see for at least 3 years...


When's the next cask going to be available? wink


ETA - do we each get a certificate once the cask's been filled?

That sounds a good idea. I'd like to try the unpeated sherry I missed out on.

Is that right - I had 8 written down mentally last night when I was emailing Krall. In fact I did suggest it would be good to get a full updated list at the end of this - including fill date etc.

How's this ?
Refill / Peated Refill / PX / Peated PX / Port / Bourbon / Rum / Peated Bourbon.
The order of purchase / fill date will differ to the listing.
