Ardbeg US sale...maybe?

Postby lohssanami » Fri Aug 14, 2009 7:11 am

So I heard rumors that Moet-Hennessy is trying to push stock of the Airigh Nam Beist and Uigeadail in the US, and the prices will be a little lower.

This most likely is to clear the warehouses of old stock to make room for the Corryvreckan that should be here in late September/early October. It also might be to make way for the new Uigeadail packaging as well. D&M in San Francisco is the first store I've seen to cut prices.

$83.99 - Airigh Nam Beist - 2 in stock.

$72.99 - Uigeadail - 30 in stock.

I don't know if they'll get more stock of the Beist once these 2 are sold, but we'll have to see. There also should be more stores coming up with some sales on these two, but I can't confirm this right now.

Add a post if you see any other stores with price cuts on these two.

So far these (much) lower prices on the Beist hasn't hit my neck of the woods yet as they are still in the $140 range. :twisted:

We'll see...maybe in the next week or two, otherwise, you might have to check some online retailers.

Or...I could be misinformed...hehe.

Tim, I don't think that you are misinformed, it is just that retailers in AZ are crazy.

Hehe...you know how the states differ so much here not only in laws, but also with the distribution system. It might be that some states don't see the cut or that some just decide to keep the prices as is and pocket the extra.

Either way, I'll post when I see stores with a price drop.

BTW, $185 for the new Supernova is caaaarazy in the US, especially at a retail store. Supply and demand though...right?

Keep the supply; I demand more.

Ok, I might have to make a trade with you on the Ardbeg Tim. Oogie and Beist are very tempting at those prices.

I got my 3 Beists from Binny's a few months ago when they had them on sale for $90. I'd love to get more for stock, tasted side-by-side with the '77 I actually like the Beist more! Although Binny's does have it cheaper (it's back up to $100 now) the taxes (10.5%) and shipping really cuts into the savings of.


Cheers!
