News From the Lowlands

Just got off the horn with Bladnoch distillery, with our friend Hazel to be specific, and it looks like our 750ml bottles have finally arrived in Wigtownshire. That means our three casks will be bottled and labeled soon, which makes us one step closer to our goal. The proofs haven't been guaged yet, so don't read too much into these labels. We still have to tweak a few things, but these are the ones we plan on using. I thought it would be fun to give you a sneak peak.

What do you think?

The young Bladnoch is a peated formula that the Armstrongs were working on just a few years back, so it's still quite expressive. Like we said before, the theme of this year's trip seemed to be young, peated whisky. We found many sub-seven year old malts that tickled our fancy. Then there was a nice fruity 12 year old.

And finally one of the Diageo-distillates, a classic 21 year old. We're still figuring out the pricing, but we expect these to be very, very reasonable. 

More news as we get it!
