I've got a 1975 (October Dist,May 2001 bottled) 25yo ,as well as several others (see http://www.spirit-of-islay.co.uk/drinks_cupboard.html)its not a bad bottling but its not up to the distillery 1975 or LOTI .It has delicate Ardbeg flavours , but not the hard hitting that you usually get off Ardbeg .If you can find a Sept 1974/bottled Feb 2001 26yo its a mini Provenance! DL OMC bottlings arn't bad but they've flooded the market with a lot of average bottlings .There is a new DL Ardbeg bottling (1975/27yo sherry cask )that is supposed to be very good , also if someone offers you the 1972/29yo Ardbeggeddon bottle bite their hand off!
by the way the web address is http://www.spirit-of-islay.co.uk/drinks_cupboard.html
Not what showed on the page (why do they never come up right!)
<B>"BTW, is the bottle & packaging in the Ardbeg style? I am assuming it's not..."
Which one Rob?</B><HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
I was referring to the Douglas Laing bottling, but it slipped my mind that theirs is a part of the "Old malt cask" series, so obviously it doesn't have the same look as the official Ardbeg bottles.
