Increasingly rare, now discontinued whisky from Ardbeg. Incredibly rich and powerful, and all too easy to drink.
The Gentle Ardbeg for a Birthday.
A nice unforeseen gift
Proud owner of 5 bottles! Talk about a good investment :-)

one of the best malts i've ever had!
26th September 2014
My father in law was asked to help a woman in his church clear out her liquor stock. He sent me a picture of the thanksgiving size table full of liquor. In the back of the picture I noticed a bottle of Ardbeg, knowing my Father-in-Law was not as fond of Islay scotch as he is of others, I asked if I could have it. A few days later in a box labeled "olive oil" a box of Ardbeg 17 arrived. I had no previous knowledge of this heavenly liquid and proceeded to open it. After a small taste I was pleasantly surprised at my good fortune. Some days later I, again after drinking a healthy sample of A17, decided to look it up. Although I wouldn't pay $726 for a bottle, I certainly appreciate the pricing. If I commonly spent that amount on a whiskey, this would be the one I spent it on.

I was lucky enough to be bought a bottle of this by my wife on my Birthday. It was one of the few Ardbegs I hadn't tried before. What a treat it was. More rounded and dare I say gentler than other Ardbegs it was mellow, mature and refined. A truly special malt from a truly special distillery from a truly special person. What more can you want?

Tried to buy all the bottles i could in 2005-6. I should have ordered a couple of cases. Very unique, essence can be noticed into the next day with only a minimal amount of consumption,(3-4 shots) very strange. I think the only action I have left is to go to Scotland.
