Sweden got over 1200 bottles of the 'Still Young'. We drink alot of single malt here. One of four bottles of whisky sold in Sweden is a single... Compared to one out of ten in the rest of the world.

I'm still curious what the total production was for the VY, Sy and AT, when I asked the distillery about the VY they said 6000 bottles, does anyone know what it was for the SY and the new AT
I think that's what Les means. They are still selling it, although it's no longer being made. In the same way, Amost There will still be on sale for a good while after they stop producing it.
Thank you Aidan that's what I had in mind. Not that they are still making STILL YOUNG. But that it is still available a year after its release. I expect the same will be with ALMOST THERE.
If any one misunderstood me I'm sorry about that.
Did she say a "crack bottling" or a "cracking bottling"? Or a "cracker"? "Cracking" and "cracker" in slang means something good. "Crack" can be good but often is not though I imagine the Ardbeg shop would be putting a good word in! I sure hope it's good, have a few cases coming in
"Almost There" was to be renamed "Almost Sensible" however this, even for me, deserves less ridicule as it "Very Close to Being Wonderful" Ardbeg... Soft peaty but finally the depth and complexity is coming through, 'bout time too... Certainly an ace, more comment in the next few days. But buy now!

I'm headed to Germany in a month to meet up with Maltteaser and go to the Limburg Whisky festval so I'm waiting to pick some up there, but if all else fails I will order it from RM.
LOL! And what is it called, "Stupidity?!?"
Speaking of which I had a happy accident in MY bottling hall the other day. I "accidentally" added some very rare common or garden Ardbeg 10 to a dram of even rarer common or garden "Glen Darbach", M&S's "Speyside" malt which wa given to me for my birthday.
Not a bad dram on its own, but with the Ardbeg added, even better! And when compared "dram to dram" with "Serendipitydoo", I'm afraid to say it was far more...um...let me find the correct word here...ENJOYABLE, that's it!
Re: "Almost Grown", we're driving past Oddbins today and I'll be taking a hopeful pitstop, despite protestations from mother and babe! Can't wait...
