Ardbeg Lord of the Isles

Postby dapa » Sat Jun 16, 2007 1:18 pm

Hi!
I understand that LoI is a 25-year old whisky but is there a new one every year :?:
Here in Sweden a bottle costs about 160 euro and that is a pretty good price I think.

so it is released every year?
that is one expensive malt.... :(
too bad it wasn't a 'one off' as the name and packaging is so nice..... would have made a great collectable bottle :)

No it's not released every year , we had a discussion about this over on my sites forum , we could only work out 3 batches of LOTI , the last being in 2005 according to the bottling codes......
It's one expensive malt due to it getting rarer......
Yes the packaging is very nice , different .

Loti

Now this should be interesting then bottlecode from my Loti: L6 151 05.56
that means bottled last year, right? So 4th release.... :shock:

maybe I'm a bit slow, it's not released every year though there are a number of batches that Ardbeg releases in different years though there is a limit to how much LOTI whisky so it'll be gone?

and yes it's a lovely packaging/name... one of my favorites for sure. :thumbsup:
