Sorry Willie, I was referring to the Cairdeas when I said "I've got it!" - I didn't order a Corryvreckan, I'm not an Ardbeg Committee member.

The swedish systembolag could be wrong in their facts - but if theyÂ´re right the youngest Cairdeas part taken from the "Quarter cask process" would be (at least) then 10 yr old whisky placed in bourbon casks three years ago instead of going into the quarter casks. (It would then indicate also that the final regular quarter cask product would be a vatting including also older components than the 4yr whisky mentioned earlier in the thread)

It seems that Laphroaig are starting a Friends loyalty scheme where bottle purchases earn points (I now have 10!) which can be redeemed in the future against as yet unnamed rewards.
