I can, but I think I will choose not to. You see - I have a couple of other ardbegs planned as well, and this bar also offer the 35yo Dun Bheagan Springbank that Frodo has been raving about - I think I will have a taste of that instead.

This is what you have to pay for 1cl
at the famous Akkurat in Stockholm:

Yeah, it seems so. I'm not really complaining about the price - but is on the other hand aware that I'm paying for the rarity of the dram here. But this seems to be one of the few cases where the quality of the dram lives up to the hype...
