Increasingly rare, now discontinued whisky from Ardbeg. Incredibly rich and powerful, and all too easy to drink.
The good old days
Back in the "good old days", when this was still being produced, it was a regular part of my whisky cabinet and my favorite Islay malt. Now alas it is well beyond affordable if it can be found at all. If I could time travel I'd buy a few cases.

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.
