However distillery stocks are running down and I am keen to try other bottlings. I have not been impressed by the old distillery bottling. The 1986 Murray McDavid is pretty decent but this is where my experience ends. Can anyone comment on any other decent ‘laddie’ bottlings, especially really old 60s ones (Signatory and Hart) that might still be available on the market.
Greetings from the other side of the country ,the (at the moment) cold and wet North-east! The distillery is about to release 3 new bottlings a 1966/36yo Legacy (£199), a 1970 vintage (£135) and a 1984 vintage (£73) .the 17yo (about £48)is going to replace the 20yo for a little while ,the 15 and 10 will remain . There is also going to be a new Valinch available from the distillery only , a 1990 /12yo refill sherry , which if it is anything like the 1990 refill sherry i've tried will be outstanding .
Also Jim McEwan had the new Octomore Distillate tested and it came out at 80.5 ppm phenols ! Can't wait for that one .
I have been following this post a while since I have a 10 year old as one of my favorite whiskies, but I haven't posted until now because I figured that only knowing one version of the distillery's products was too little. Yesterday I bought the 15 year old and felt that I just had to post.
The 15 is even better and I'm so happy about this distillery. I'm kind of new to the world of whisky, but thanks to Bruichladdich I couldn't have had a better start.
Thanks all, best regards,

Hmmm Ian I will need to go back to the drawing board. I thought Loch Fyne was my well kept secret. Now I know why certain things are disappearing before I can get my order together (smile).
On another note I think I am going to score the Cadenheads 19yr bottling of the Laddich. I am not sure which though, there are two offerings available for the same price from consecutive years 1978 and 1979. Any ideas any of you? Leaning to the 79' because I had other Cadenheads with that production year that have been good.

I am in a place called Cumbria. It is the Lake district on the English side of the border with Scotland so most of the distilleries are in decent distance from me
I must admit to being totally shock by the new bottling but the 20 is now all gone (going to 17), the 15 is going to 12 and the 10 is staying as it is. I always thought before trying them that I would prefer one over the other but the three bottling are all of supreme quality but they are different. The blends are different. All that is the same is the HIGH quality.
I will try and hunt out the Adelphi. I am just drinking an Adelphi Highland Park cask 2093 bottling which is superb. One of the best examples I have ever had from HP. Have an old Longmorn lined up next from Adelphi.
My only problem is the limited supply but with a little leg work, bottles can always be found. Anyone tried any older ones? I am not alone in buying up stock then!
