The 12 Second Edition
125th Anniversary, Vintage 1970 - 35 years old
3D3 - The Norrie Campbell Tribute Bottling
Infinity Second Edition
Legacy Series V
Port Charlotte PC5 (I can't wait!!)
I'll be looking for a few of these including the 3D3 & PC5.
Since I can only get Bruichladdich when I travel, I really appreciate the solid tins (with the bottle holder inside) that they use.
I think they are very brave, having the balls to be innovative, yet releasing authentic, quality whiskies. As such, I applaud them for that in what is an increasingly competitive, global market.

Looking at the timeline this makes sense as it was mothballed in 1995 and reopened in 2001. They could come out with an 11yo instead, I suppose but then they'd have to relable it next year. Will take five years until the new spirit is ready for the 10yo label so for a while there will only be younguns like PC5 and the aforementioned 12yo.
Bruichladdich - Infinity OB 2nd Edition 52.5%vol.
A new vatting with less sherry than our old favourite which was a mix of peaty Bruichladdich and three sherry cask vintages. This time there is no sherry but they have buggered about with Rioja casks for a finish. But let's ignore that.
This is a peaty whisky, a little flatter than many Islays, like one of the new mainland peatys. A quiet, green and oily nose. The taste is dry, vegetative with a good fishiness and a big peaty swallow, for me it's too much peat I prefer the first Infinity, we will test it in the shop to see what you punters think....
[PC5 is due in November]
