Ardbeg Oogling countdown!

Postby Di Blasi » Mon Jul 17, 2006 1:11 am

Somewhat in response to "drink or sell your ardbeg oogling," along with just plain curiousity about this exciting recent bottling and selling out of another excellent Ardbeg expression, I wonder how many we can account for here on the forum.
So, if you own, have drunk, or know others that have, then countdown from the 1,392 bottles. I'll start...

1,392
-2 bottles
1,390 bottles left...

Supposedly there is one waiting for me at Ardbeg. But I can't count it until I have it in hand, and that won't be until October.

Good start Mr. T!
Unless you've paid for it and they're just waiting for you to pick it up, you're right, maybe you should wait til October. Not to worry, this could take awhile!

And if we post how we got it, (gift, auction, etc), other than from the website or at the distillery, that would be interesting as well.
I bought mine online/phone.

Mine came from Ardbeg directly but with no box. Did anyone else get a box?

Nope. We got two bottles put aside for us at the distillery, since we were going on holiday to Islay anyway.

Les, I meant: the cardboard box that Ardbeg use for posting. Nothing fancy, nothing special. I just kept it in the box because my whisky cupboard is a bit full at present :)

Hi Toshie I understand now thanks mate.

P.s the bottle needs to be be taken out of the box and stroked so that it knows its loved.

Still 1365 to go.

Now we're at 1364 and counting down! It's been nice hearing not only of their wherabouts, but also that they've already been enjoyed! I may have to taste one of mine too. Who's next?

Mine's safely tucked away and quietly waiting until the boys with the Baggy Greens regain the ashes from the old enemy.

1363 and counting...

It will be worth a fortune by then - be sure to watch out for evaporation form the bottle. A fine investment. ;)

There is one up for sale on Ebay finishing on July 23rd. The guy wants to start his auction at £75. More than double the Ardbeg price I think thats very dodgy. ( And he reckons there's 1500 ish of them ).

Still 1362

Yes, weird he doesn't know more about what he's selling, especially such a special bottle. Maybe the person that buys it will post here, and give us the details!

Actually the guy has a good clean record on Ebay, and says 1300ish only.
And starting price of 60£.
