Mate, it is just the luck of the draw. I have only ever been hit for duties once and I have brought a fair few bottles in.

I got mine by phoning the distillery directly, this was after they were supposed to have sold out.

Thank you! I was sad about missing this on the first go, but I'm glad to get in on it now! I just put in an order--but then I realized they may not ship to me because I'm in the US. Well, I'll take my chances... :thumbsup:

Edit: Screw that, I'm not taking chances. I've already emailed them and told them to ship it instead to my girlfriend in Finland. :D

Hi Justin

If they won't do that, you can ship to one of us and we can forward on. There are several forum members who have done this.

It adds a layer of postage cost of course....

Nick


Thanks! You guys are awesome. I'll probably give them a call first thing Monday morning and see if I can get things sorted out. :D

Anyone know how many are left.

I would expect it cannot be that much.
Expect it will sell out real soon.

I'd love to try and order another, but I think it's best to give others the opportunity. Plus, they did say 1 per person.

Told my Dad, who is a committee member, so his order may find it's way to me for safe keeping (gasp - a 2nd bottle). Just wondering what suitable punishment should befall me Nick.......

I don't suppose it will take long with touts on the case. You know, the kind of people who can't even be bothered to look up the name of a whisky before trying to count the profits they'll make on it:

Nick

I thought Touts sells things on.

As I have never sold a bottle on how can I be a tout.

Can you claim the same.

All the best yours papercrack :iwbrnt:

Looks like its all gone as the Corryvreckan has been totally removed from the Ardbeg website.

Papercrack,

Have you not realised its one rule for Nick and one rule for the rest?

Of course Nick would never sell any bottles because that would supposedly make him "tout" or even a "dishonest trader"

ps - i made healthy profit on the 6 bottles i obtained :) :thumbsup:

Well then, I'm psyched I got mine when I did! Let's hope this second round doesn't take as long to ship as the first round did for everyone else--I've been reading the thread, and saw how frustrated people were!

I'm sure this won't stay unopened for long once I finally get my hands on it. :mrgreen:

No Fishy - touting is trying to break rules - like one bottle per person - and then selling on to the people whose bottles you have taken by foul means at inflated prices. Dishonest is telling lies about what you're selling to try to mislead potential customers. You are dishonest, and the more you post, the more it shows. And there are some choice comments on your e-bay feedback too.

Feisislay, I don't think anyone would have a problem with you,if you came on to the forum with a bottle to sell (close to the RRP) to a forum member who had missd out on a bottle. But the way you have done it, is to come on here and boast that you got seven bottles (QoS) and are out to make a profit on them! This will put people off wanting to deal with you. I'm not saying that you won't get any interest, but you will get little interest at the prices that you have mentioned (relating to ebay).

Its as if you come onto the forum with the sole intention of winding people up about this? I would suggest you grow up a bit, there is no need for your blatant profiteering.
