What's in a name? Ardbeg 17 Year Old whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Ardbeg 17 Year Old whiskey, rather than whisky.
I recently found a bottle for £250, in fact I found two. so one is for keeps and one is now open. the whisky is truly immense

... this was 30 quid in Tescos, beutiful nonetheless, easily my favourite Islay Whisky,georgeous.
It's due to the history of the distillery, it was closed from 1991 to 1997 when it was bought by Glenmorangie, so whiskey distilled in that year is currently only 16 years old. I had the joy of having a bottle of this back around 2003-4 and it is a beautiful dram. Would I buy a bottle for this much? That is the real question.

Ardbeg can't sort it out!! Its supply and demand. Van Gogh can't sort out the value given to a given Sunflowers painting.
