OMC Ardbegs

Postby Scotchio » Sun Mar 26, 2006 4:24 pm

I am planning to auction off some old Ardbegs to raise some money for other purchases ie Ardbeg 77 and cc 76 plus some others with the change but I wanted to check with members as to the likely value and quality of the contents before I commit to selling. You lot already persuaded me not to sell a Springbank 21 and I will probably put some of the revenue from these toward a Dun Bheagan Springer 69 35yr old aswell. So if you have tried these bottlings and have any notes or comments it would be useful.
The bottles I intend selling are the OB 75 25yr old, an OMC 72 28yr old bottled Feb 01 dist NOV 72 1 of 186 bottles and an OMC 1974 26yr old Sept 74 Feb 01 1 of 252 bottles.
I've already had one bottle of the 75 so I already know what that one is like.
thanks in advance

There are various OB 1975s:
Bottled 1999
Bottled 2000
Bottled 2001

All fetch around the same price: €170 to €200

OMC 1972, 28years old I haven't seen any sold since late 2005, but the prices have been steady during last year at around €220 to €250

I haven't seen the 1974 sold, but the 1975 OMCs have achieved a little less than the 1972 bottles, around €180 to €195

So I would expect the 1974 to be around €190 to €230

Obviously the Single Cask 1975's, of which there are many different ones, normally achieve prices around €400 to €450

If you have a set price in mind, I may be interested.........

Your Ardbegs are worthless, so as a favour mate, I'll take them off your hands for £50 each! :D
Give me a call at home mate, you know the number, dont you?

£50 is the same as 79 Euros, something fishy here .............

Nah, €79 is at least 54.86 GBP!

That's for the lot, right? :wink:

http://www.whiskyauction.com can perhaps help you to dertermine a price level.

I know they are out of date bottles but I didn't expect them to have depreciated so much in 5 years. :wink:

I don't rember by heart which "outturn" version of OMC I tried. The 1975 OMC was extremely peaty and somewhat very blunt and I only bought one bottle last month for a shop for about £120. On the other hand, the 1972 bottled in 2001 (I bought also one of those last week for £130), was beautiful. Rich, complex and beautifully balanced. It was just a pity they have not allowed me to buy more than one bottle.
The 1974 OMC can still be found in some shops for £100.

Cheers,
Corbuso
