They still have it in stock Shocked I am just wondering how many bottles they have made of it...


it was stated in their email communications:
'Orders are limited to one bottle per Member – but remember that you’ll have more than one chance to get hold of this release!' To be fair its seems priced at drinking prices.


I was thinking that the CR would be limited as normal and then they would have a standard release which their would be lots of so could be found in shops..

House of Malt selling this for £149.99, and it's still in stock at Ardbeg. Usual 'private collection' rubbish.

Anyone who buys anything from HoM should be ashamed.

"This private collector has collected it from the DHL collection point and brought it straight in with us... "

Had a little neckpour tonight and comes across quite pleasant, very reminiscent of the 10y/o, a touch drier ? Look forward doing a h2h on the weekend.

Agree 100% really enjoyed it. Think whether it sells in the future depends on the price point £30 but regularly discounted to £25 would make it a go to daily drinker for a lot of people.

Tried this last night. Found it quite robust and perhaps a little bit sooty? Drier mouthfeel than I'm used to with Ardbeg.

Of all the things that will never happen, this will never happen the most. Very Happy even though I would love that pricepoint, I dont think well see an age stated ardbeg for 30 euros in our lifetime again, unless on sale ofcourse. I dont think its ardbegs market either to be a tescos daily drinker discount malt.

Probably right and wishful thinking on my part Sad Was basing it on the 10 often being around £37. Possibly an upscale of all Ardbeg prices and the 8 being regularly available for £37?

Yeah, Ive seen the 10 priced down to around 37 quite a few times recently. I think it will also depend if they would keep it at higher strength, which I do think helps it a bit.

Tasting it again yesterday, it has quite a few earthy vegie notes in there, like onion and celery, and quite a bit of spice, almost like chilly spice, finish was a bit bland tho sadly.

I wonder if this coincides with when some of the big distilleries started ramping up production and have loads and loads of stock sitting there?
