MRJ - under-rated in the way people never raved about it the way they did about other releases , a lot of people didn't like the peatiness of it after the 1975 and 1978 .
MT - why would it have been numbered at 2400 bottles ?
Is the Young Uigeadail numbered at under 1400 bottles ?
Was the ACR numbered at 3000 bottles ?
Was the Very Young Committee at 4002 ?
Was the 21yo at 2500 ?
Was the 1990 at 1800 ?
Ardbeg is a buzz whisky (in the speculator sense) at the moment but even going back just a couple of years it wasn't always so .
The ACR was around the distillery shop for a while , as was the Very Young Committee and the 21yo , nobody seemed interested in these ( i picked up 8 VYA's over a few visits and several ACR's ). The speculators only seem interested in the 1977 now it is all but gone (if there are still bottles available in Europe ).
I'll not hold it against you for doubting me , nobodys perfect ! LOL!
