Ardbeg Corryvreckan?

Postby Bulkington » Mon Apr 07, 2008 9:39 pm

A friend just told me he got a mailing from Ardbeg with an order form for a new expression by the above name. Google yields nothing and the Ardbeg site won't let me in. I know I look young for my age....

Anyone know anything about this?

There's nothing on their website. I suggest you speak to your friend and get hem or her to read the mailing to you. That sounds like all the info there is (and I googled Adrbeg Corryvreckan and didn't even get this thread. Nothing.

Nevermind. Apparently it's only for committee members and won't mail to the US. Sounds like something for Collector's Corner. Maybe it comes in a golf bag or violin case.

I googled corryvreckan and came up with a straight by this name between Jura and Scarba with a whirlpool. Ardbeg is known for using geographical names but I thought they usually used more local names.

It wasn't an e-mailing. Quaint, right? He forgot to bring it into work today.

3rd largest whirlpool in the world and a likely target for a name, but I would have thought more likely to be used by Jura. Hope it is a committee bottling, it sounds like fun.

Wonder when the next issue of momentous minutes is due..........

:wink:

Last one was April 2007. If the Corryvreckan is a Committee bottling let's hope it's a reasonable price. I'm stretched thin this month already after the Longrow 18 and the Springbank society bottling!!!!

Welcome kenji! Any details of what this oddly named Ardbeg is, age, strength, how many will be released and when, price?

I got my notice in the mail today. Of course, the fine print says no shipping to the US so I guess I'm SOL. Does anyone know how strictly they enforce this rule? Like if I gave them a call would I be able to talk them into sending me one?

Anyway, details for those interested:
45lbs for a 70cl bottle (includes UK duty & VAT)
57.1% ABV
No mention of age that I could find

Will it just be sold at the Ardbeg distillery? It would be nice to snag one when I get to Scotland in a few weeks (May 2nd).


Cheers!

Is this worth buying to 'tuck away' ?

And do these Committee bottlings sell through quickly ?

Just ordered one via the website.

Does anyone know if this is going to be available in the shops or is it only available direct from Ardbeg?

I think any Ardbeg is worth tucking away but with this being a limited edition of 5000 it's a bit of a sure bet.

It's one per customer - that's fair, I think.

I wonder what's inside.

Hi everyone

5000 bottles seems a lot for a limited edition....perhaps 2 bottles per committee member would've been nice or am I just being greedy !

The Committee Very Young 4002 bottles
The Committee Oogling 1392 bottles.

Can anyone tell me if this is the Committee bottling of the soon to be released Ardbeg Renaissance 10 Y.O or is it a totally different bottling ?

Cheers
Enzo...

What's the age?? I think Ardbeg has more special stuff in store for us all this year, more than a committee bottling for members only. But I'm not sure what, I've just heard. More to look forward to, exciting!! :mrgreen:

Les, and everyone, the Ardbeg ambassador in Norway told me about a month ago it's gonna be the year for Ardbeg! And that's all he said, nothing else, damn him!
