I'll probably end up getting both.
My general thoughts about the distillery is that its whiskies are a bit overpriced compared to other whiskies that I have liked as much. So, while it is good stuff, and I would welcome to try any new expression, I don't see myself buying a great deal of it at this point. I agree with other disussions that demand and the percpetion of value are key indicates in the priceing; the Laddie has done a good job of marketting thier products. And while I would love to try the PC5; I think I would rather spend the money on something else.

The reason it's getting discontinued is because the stocks left from the closing of Bruichladdich in 1993 is now up to 12~13 yo old. The 10yo will be back in about 4 to 5 years from now when the new spirit distilled from the reopening of Bruichladdich in 2001 reaches maturity. It may happen to the Ardbeg 10 for the same reason.
your quite correct about the Laddie , they reckon they have about 4 years supplies of the 12yo , regarding the 10yo Ardbeg i think we'll be ok , Ardbeg were still producing in 1996 , Glenmorangie did do a limited amount of distilling in 1997 (25th June 2007 is party time , 10th anniversary of coming back online....) but were hampered by machinery going wrong so low stock and in 2008 we have the Glenmorangie distilled 10yo appearing . I'm sure the present 10yo will last till then.....
i presume they are going for the 12yo as standard for the forseeable future?
I've read at the Bruichladdich website where they think they'll have about a 4 to 5 year supply of the 12yo (pre-1993). They'll either stretch this batch out till about 2013 or discontinue the "old" 12 for a couple of years till the "New post-2001" 12 can be bottled. Knowing Bruichladdich I'm betting on the latter!
