Omaha Dellrod, I hope to be in the same position 4 weeks from now.
Over time I found that BruichLaddich became my favorite malt.
They are the only one not to color their whisky with sugar additives and frankly: I like their style.
Independent, innovative and a bit of a maverick in the industry. I like that.
And I am totally addicted to the webcams.
Thanks for the pic's

Its a great time at Bruichladdich - Just added PC-5, PC-6 and Redder Still to my collection and have purchased a "futures" case of Octomore - which will be the worlds most heavily peated malt - Of course I will not be able to pick that one up till Jim says its ready - Probably 2012 or 2013 -

Have a great time - BTW - The name Dellrod refers to those of us who frequent the Dundee Dell here in Omaha, NE (USA) - The Dell now boasts over 640 single malt scotches which we believe to be the largest pourable collection of single malts in the world

That's quite a collection.
How do you compare the B'Laddich to other malts?
I think they can compare with the best.
Just bought a bottle of XVII. Very subtle malt.
But Redder Still....I heard lots of good things about it. A bit over my budget, I think.
Maybe, when I'm there, I could be tempted.....

Bruichladdich compares favorably with other malts but you have to keep in mind that its only be in operation recently after being silent for a long time - Its also an independent (one of the reasons I love them) and as such it has to produce lots of different expressions of younger whisky to keep the cash flow going while it ages its stock - This is also a big challenge from Ardbeg (but they now finally have their own 10 YO expression going back to 1998)

Anyway, can't wait till Port Charlotte starts producing whisky under the watchful eye of Jim, Duncan and Mark!

Redder Still is indeed a fine malt, but I loved more the Blacker Still which is a Fresh Sherry cask matured whisky.


Love Single Malt , love Islay , love Scotland ...

I have heard of it. Is it still around?
I can't find it on the B'Laddich website.
Between 2600 and 2800 bottles filled, so very rare, I think

You can find it on "whisky exchange" website - Can also check with Loch Fyne Whisky Shop and Royal Mile Whisky Shop - Both are on-line.
