I haven't tried a bottle of the Ardbeg 'Airigh Nam Beist'
but they were selling here in Seattle
(if you were lucky enough to buy one before it sold out)
for about $110 a bottle
Don't really consider that affordable
considering I just picked up a bottle of Brora OMC for $115
and I don't believe that Brora
really belong in the same sentence.
all that aside I did pick up some of the Ardbeg 17yo at a very reasonable price last year ($60 a bottle)
But my vote will still go with Lagavulin 16yo
which is a great buy at $62 a bottle here in Seattle
