Cheers Rob, I guess i'll have to contact Ardbeg to have the VAT charges refunded on this and my Corry.

I thought it would be best to get in there quick, at 9:10 was my order via the website, fortunately it was working then.

Wait for my Supernova
Wait to see if we can do it this season and make Rafa the first manager with a goatee to take an EPL title
Wait to see if StevieG ends up nicked
Wait to see if Keane can find form
Bah! Too much waiting! :evil:

You're right. I don't think they should wait to see what happens to Gerrard. They should just put him in jail. However, I'd be happy to wait another 100 years to see if Liverpool win the Premier League.

There's even an eBay member who's selling 6 of them already (bin 199 euro) and offers a free sample so he's got at least 7 of them. Isn't there something Ardbeg could do about this? Like using only one credit card or something. I should not complain as I've placed an order myself, but I think it's unfair that these bottles end up on eBay at such insane prices, while several Committee Members don't have one...

I hope this does not advertise his bottles. The moderator can take it down if he feels it will.

I doubt that the seller will really get more than 2 supernovae. It was possible to order two bottles more than once. But the Ardbeg shop system recognized that you had ordered before and told you that you have unallowed items in your basket.
He will finally get a mail from Ardbeg that tells him they deleated his second and third order.

Picture looks dodgy and not one of a bottle only label, so he may not have them.

The seller says that he will send the bottles in 3-4 weeks after the end of the auction. No, he doesn't have them yet and it's unlikely that he'll get more than two bottles.

He already sold one... I think the picture is just downsized from the original from the Ardbeg website.

Well mine are both here... I can't believe how fast the shipping was I ordered at 09:46 on Tuesday and the post office tried to deliver them on Thursday. They are now both sitting quietly in my cabinet :thumbsup:

I ordered 2 bottles and one bottle of Blasda on Tuesday. One bottle of Supernova arrived today. Do they usually send them out seperately?

I will be out of the office starting 01/21/2009 and will not return until

Ardbeg Supernova is still in orbit over the United States…

BigPapi, bottles are sent separate but mine arrived together.

US guys i suggest you get on the phone to your prospective liquor stores, i'm already aware US stocks are very low through pre-orders. Park Ave have very little left aparantly.

I received one today, but ordered two. I know it's normal they get shipped separate but is it normal they get delivered on different days?

Cheers,
