Interesting. I always hoped there would be reductions given that the 10 regularly drops to £37. A similar proportional discount might see the 5 going into the twenties even.

I've got a bottle here already and IMO £30ish is probably the right price for it, I was quite impressed with my first pour but every time to return to it I just wish I was drinking the 10yr instead. Considering I've never paid more than £37 for a bottle of the 10yr I just don't really see the point of the wee beastie at the typical £35-£36 price point.

Bigshing what would be your ratings on the 10 and wee beastie? Your ratings might differ from mine but just be interested to see the ratings gap

ive Not tried the wee bestie yet, it be a few months before I do, the ardbeg 10 is a solid 89 for me, it’s the just the gap between the two which was puzzling me that’s all, it be good to here your thoughts.

I'm an Ardbeg fanboy so my ratings are a little higher for the 10yr, this is how i'd rank the Ardbeg i've tried:

Uigeadail: 93/100
10yr: 92/100
An Oa: 89/100
Wee Beastie 86/100

Wee beastie definitely a couple of notches below the 10yr because it's a little too peat heavy imo, robs the whisky of much of its subtler flavours and also finshes on quite an astringent note. I mean, it's a nice enough dram: Sweet, smoky, and fruity as you'd expect from Ardbeg, but one thing that did strike me about the Wee Beastie though was how much toffee I was getting from it compared to the 10 and Oa where the toffee notes aren't quite as in your face.

Have you tried any of their cask strength core offerings? Uigeadail is one ofmy absolute favourite whiskies and I have a bottle of the corryvreckran in my collection but waiting for a special occasion to crack it open coz it's on the upper end of my budget! :D

Talisker DE. Pre-order for May 6th stock.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Talisker-Distillers-Whisky-70-cl/dp/B00GQZ52EW/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=Talisker+Distillers+Edition&qid=1616448651&s=grocery&sr=1-2/&tag=scotchmaltwhisky-21


At 50.84 (-10%). Not a huge saving but over the last two years this has been (roughly) the lowest price point.

Was a mixed review on this forum for this I recall.
