New 1999 Ardbeg Single Cask

Postby r900p » Mon Sep 20, 2010 9:46 pm

This is available from the distillery, limited to 222 and bottled at a whopping 68.6%.

Best ring as they don't seem to be placing it online.

68.5% after 11 years is just not going to happen when they bottle at industry standard 63.5%

Regardless whether Rob got the right ABV or not i''m going to throw a spanner in the works :D
Last friday night i was sitting drinking with the man who was manager at Ardbeg Distillery at the time of this spirits birth . We were sitting drinking the SMWS 33.91 (2000 Distillation) bottling which is at 64.4% , i asked him why this was so high as i thought 63.5% was the filling strength , turns out they did fill casks at higher ABV and that's from the horses mouth so to speak :P
BTW hoping to get the man and his business partner on the chat at some point to talk about his new venture at some point .
