184 bottles from cask 772, 55.7%, was sold for £ 192
Availible on the Ardbeg website, Friday the 13th of March.
Seems like it sold out in an instant.
Did anyone here get one?

Some have too much money and for 560 euros, I would rather buy an old Ardbeg from the 1970s, or a case of Ardbeg IBs

"Pale Gold in colour , this Ardbeg took a hell of a long time to open up , very reserved , when it did it was very similar to the ANB . The nose was light peat , smoke and creamy fudge . The palate was creamy peat and very smoky , it had a long finish with creamy fudge and peat . Not a bad example of an Ardbeg but is it worth £192 a bottle ? Is any 16yo worth £192 a bottle ? ........No !"
The Toasted Cask Feis Ile Bottle was better......
Perhaps £192 is a lot for a 16 Y.O but as this now fetches £450 + on e bay it doesn't seem too expensive for a single cask bottling with only 184 bottles available.This is obviously one for the collectors rather than the drinkers.
Going by your tasting notes it also sounds like a very good Ardbeg.
P.S. Excellent site Gordon.
