I would like to know how many bottles were released in this edition. Can anyone help?
I found my bottle at http://lincolnwhiskyshop.co.uk - I live within driving distance but you can order online too.
Apparently the shop owner had originally bought my bottle from another collector a while ago - it had just been gathering dust on a shelf until I acquired it.
I noticed it's not for sale anymore in his shop but at the time I bought it for 280 Euro + 25 Euro shipping costs. He's not cheap but some bottles are a bargain compared to other shops. I know he's Italian but this one is OK.
"Limited Edition" can be very miss leading , for example Glenfiddich labelled a bottle Limited Edition when it ran into over 60,000 bottles ! The only way you can say it is limited is the limited amount of production a distillery can do in a year......
At least with Ardbeg from that time you do know it will be a limited amount....
Maybe one of these days, Ardbeg/Glenmorangie/MH will give me access to bottle numbers for all of their limited editions.
Of the Vintages, only the 1965 and 1990 had the out turn reported, and these were also only distributed in one batch each.
The 1975, 1977 and 1978 were released in multiple batches over 3-4 calendar years each.
Also of note, the 1977 is the only one that mentions "Non-Chill Filtered" on the label, and I haven't confirmed whether or not the other bottles were NCF even though it wasn't on the label.
Here's the Vintage page if you want to check it out.
Ardbeg Vintage Releases
£350 for the 1975 is full but fair
This Ardbeg collecting is a slipperly slope Mr Lincolnshire whisky man!
Lots of love from the fat lad from Grantham
That won't stop me enjoying my purchase though - when the right occasion presents itself of course.
If you can find one the 1978 vintage bottled at 42.4 % vol is the one to buy as it's very rare.It's believed only 204 bottles of this were sold at the Distillery.It was never sold anywhere else as it was bottled under the 43% vol needed.
