Ardbeg Provenance- 1974, 750ml; Bottled 29 March 2000; #5100

Postby WhiskyGrrl » Sat Mar 12, 2011 2:13 am

Dear Whisky Aficionados,

I've finally found this site again after a couple of years away. Life has intervened... I continue to enjoy the bottles I've picked up in the UK over the past few years.

However, I still have an intact numbered bottle of the subject offering, complete with gorgeous dovetailed oaken box, wee tartan surrounding it, numbered, signed & wax sealed certificate, complete with boxed lidded tasting glass.

Ardbeg Provenance: Very Old Single Islay Malt Scotch Whisky
Year of Distillation: 1974
Bottling Date: 29 March 2000
Bottle #:5100
750ml
55% Alcohol Volume

I am looking to value & sell this fine bottle. Any and all help and guidance is appreciated.
Thanks,
Whiskygrrl, aka Debbie

Just remember if you seeing selling for a certain price on a retailers site you won't get that price as they have to pay VAT and have a profit !

I have seen these sell for much less in the US... in the $700 range on ebay from reputable sellers

Pretty funny isn't it Nick!! I think it just comes down to the fact there are more collectors in Europe and also WA gives that market much more liquidity with bottles driving up the prices

And one should not forget the specificites of the US, were interstate shipping is complicated and sometimes forbidden. Therefore, selling whisky outside your state in the US is rather complicated (if you want to follow the regulations) and thus results in a lower number of potential buyer.

Please correct me if I am wrong.
