I have just aquired a bottle of Ardbeg 1977 which i'd been seeking for a long time. My mate bought a bottle about 9 weeks ago now from a shop in the UK, but my version comes packaged with a tasting notes booklet (which his didn't). On the reverse of the tasting notes (which give details of the 10 year old, 17 year old, 1977 and Provenance; written as always by jim murray) there are two contact addresses for Ardbeg; one is the dist address on Islay and the other is c/0 Sager - Bell Inc, 10300 Linn Station Road, Suite 450, Louiseville Kentucky 40223.
This would lead me to believe that this bottle came from the USA. Can anyone confirm that the USA bottling had a tasting notes booklet in, and that it did not come with the UK version?
