Check ebay just to see what some are selling and buying at. But shops if they have it I'd say are probably selling at, wow! Just checked

and it's more expensive than expected. I'd say the " Committee Approved" would be about 80£ or so, but not sure really. Just glad I've got a bottle, it's great!

Hi Jockonarock,
I take it by Ardbeg Very Young Committee Reserve you mean the one that 's got "For Discussion" stamped on it ?
The main difference is that the "For Discussion" was a 1997 , 6yo , 58.9% , 4002 bottle release . Where as the Ardbeg Very Young Committee Approved was a 1998 , 6yo , 58.3% , unknown number of bottles . A lot of people , incl me , refer to the first as VYA and the second as AVY (due to the way they are wrote on the label) . Both were un-boxed or at least mine were !

I have never seen any boxed versions of the "For Discussion" or the "Committee Approved" and I bought mine directly from the distillery.
