Is it just me?
I tried to purchase a bottle of the Ardbeg scorch when they announced its sale. Was getting frozen out of their site or could not logon. When I tried (on 3 occasions) this year to speak to someone at Ardbeg I get the same character on the phone who is as much help as chocolate teapot.
Followed by a "Sorry we are sold out...it is very popular"
Ok... putting aside their lack of customer service.... why is their 20 bottles of the stuff up at auction as we speak? All individual Ardbeg fans who decided to sell it on?? Or is the distillery selling it direct to auction??
Its is worse there are 76 bottles on there. I complained to Ardbeg but they said they cant stop individuals trying to turn a profit!!! 76 *... that is not individuals.
It is individuals... there are - at least - thousands of bottles sold. So for tens to be at auction to try to make a quick £1-200ish pounds makes perfect sense.
Committee Releases only go to 'Embassies' rather than any old retailer and I don't think they'd punt to auction direct. I'm making the (possibly naive) assumption that Ardbeg would actually do some form of checking that Embassies actually sell their allocation. _________________ @in5tadram
