Looking to Buy a Young Cask
As I mentioned in an earlier thread, "I purchased a cask of Bruichladdich in 2001. Do your homework. Although you can have it bottled and sent to the USA, I can assure you that it is not an easy task. You will have to be a relentless soul to endure the red tape."
I was fortunate enough to purchase this cask direct from Bruichladdich, so the bottling task became an easy task, but I can assure you that you will have greater headaches than just having it bottled; especially if you reside in the USA or Canada. And Canada is a whole different ball game. Your generosity is to be admired and commended, but I would just purchase some rare vintage and save it for him.
