Ardbeg Single Cask 2742

Postby lohssanami » Mon Jun 08, 2009 2:06 am

There's a bottle on Kruger's http://www.whiskyauction.com that isn't seen too much.

I'm going to predict (way out on a limb, I know) this Ardbeg will blow away the Ping (2780), Turf (3306) and Manager's Choice (2391) in price during the current Kruger's Whisky Auction. There are enough wealthy Ardbeg nuts and investors, and I wouldn't be surprised to see this go for more than 5,000 Euros. Only 36 bottles, and it was distributed for the Hotels of the World in late 2005.

I may be a nut, but I'd never pay this amount of money...unless, of course, I had an unlimited amount of money.

Here is a link to the details I've put up on my site.

It should be fun to see how it turns out.

Makes my 1189 cask bottle seem a steal at £130 this week.
Although not in the same limited release as the above at 252. 8)

It's 2AM here, and I just happen to get up from my chair after I press play. Speakers were up, and I'm scrambling to hit mute before the siren really hits paydirt...lol.

Good one dog!
