If there is 12000 there will be no rush .

It took 3 weeks for the Corry and than a few drips and drabs after that.
5000 if I recall.
Strange to go for such a high number as 12000. Given the bad reports thus far, todays PR diaster could mean a white elephant on the shelf.
I would like Ardbeg to do a discount on this now 10% for goodwill.
:P :thumbsup:

After taking 14hours and 50minutes to actually place an order then I think I deserve to make a few quid on a bottle!!!! Charging my going rate of £10 an hour plus costs, hmm, that will be £203 plus p&p :P

Saying that I have no intention of selling (my 2nd of) this bottling in any time soon, but I dont see the problem in people making some money by selling on. I have been a Committee member since the beginning (membership number is less than 50) and have bought, drunk & shared many of their bottlings. Should I deny others the opportunity to drink these whiskies? I still own many old & unopened committee bottlings which have appreciated in value, in part as a result of people selling on (and of course being an excellent whisky). If I am now to sell I could afford other whisky that is beyond my normal affordability. I would prefer to sell some bottles and buy something else I have not yet sampled.

The answer depends entirely upon whether or not your membership number is under 17. Saying it is under 50 is too broad.

Jazz,

maybe you should allow Jacobellis to ski the mountain. I'm sure she could use the "consolation". :P

I find the fact that a 3yr old new release from an up and running distillery appears in the "collector's corner" department here quite scary

Don't get me wrong, I like Ardbeg, but the hype is just too much :D
