I am also one of the 20 with shares in casks 699 and 701 from 2007.
Yes, I tasted the sister casks to the 699 and 701 as 4yo in May 2012 and it was a nice colour and quite influenced by the wine in the taste.

Another shared cask I have 1/10 in is the heavily peated Bladnoch from 16'th of October 2009 (Barrel 44).

Trying to link to a photo of the samples...

I think you have to go to Photo Gallery to publish photos!

Yeah, I realise they're not Margadale. I like the variety. Getting through the Margadale alone will be some task.

I have some more shares in casks maturing in Martin's warehouse too. I'll have to find out what they are!

By the way, I met an old teammate of yours last year - Kenny McElroy.

Kenny was a great club man, which unfortunately I was not. I was lazy and just enjoyed playing. Kenny is very sociable and he kept us well entertained with his craic in the car or on the bus going to and from matches. Haven't seen him for a good while but the great thing about rugby is that if I met him in the street tomorrow we could probably both recall matches in which we both played "brilliantly" over 40 years ago. Raymond


I missed this... He spoke highly of you. He said you were a determined player. He has a great knowledge of Northern Irish history at his fingertips.

Hi guys,
I have a 1/20 share of cask 697/2007 and 704/2007. What will happen now with these casks and shares, I believe it was going to be bottled possibly at the end of this year?

Hi Steve,
Unless you have the names of the other shareholders and they agree to bottle you´ll just have to bide your time and hope that incompetence will not rule Bladnoch forever.

Hi Steve,
I'll write and ask each shareholder of your cask if they are willing to exchange email addresses. I would recommend that you bottle the cask as soon as it is 8yo if only to avoid any complications. There was wording to that effect in the purchase agreement unless all parties agreed otherwise, so the presumption is that it should be bottled. I think the distillery is likely to be bottling by then but if it is not, Martin my son has warehouses and bottling facilities just 10 miles down the road, so when the time comes it shouldn't present a difficulty.
PS Martin bottled an 8yo for a customer who had bought it back when first filled. The lady had come across from NE England to see it being bottled. He said it tastes great. How time flies!

Hey Steve - I'm one of the other 1/20th owners of 697/2007 & 704/2007. just need to find the other 18 of us and we're all set. \:\)

The bottling date shown on my contract is 27th July, so I assume it can be bottled any time after that. now getting my bottles over the the US is a whole nother story.

I don't check this forum too often, but I can be reached at a yahoo -dot- com address with the name elud internation al (all one word)

Thank you for your replies.

I was a little worried as to what is happening with the casks with possibly not getting them at all.

I dont have a date on my contract stating when it would be bottled that I can see. I was assuming it would be about 8 years after buying a share, just in time for my 40th lol. I had thought I would try and have a visit when it was be bottled too.

Raymond, do you have an idea how much it will cost when the bottling is done with all the extra charges to us individualy?
