    Funny, I just picked up a bottle of this for 79.99 a couple of weeks back, and I was pumped because it was a great price for a bottle I generally don't see around anymore. I have had the pleasure of tasting it multiple times, and I find it to be one of the smoothest, most balanced Ardbegs I've ever had. It's much better than the Corry, and is much more approachable than the overpowering Alligator or the thin, kinda weird Galileo. And rumor has it (as in I read it somewhere, but i can't substantiate it), that at least the first batch had pre-Glenmorangie barrels in the mix. As easy drinking an Ardbeg as I've ever had.

    How can you find out which batch of the Beist you have?

    cheers!

    It was distilled in 1990 and released for three years (2006-2008). So based on the year it was bottled, you either had a 16yr, 17yr, or 18yr expression.

    I went by the local to get some Rum and found McIvor scotch on sale. I'm only vaguely familiar with this brand having read about it on the scotch boards. Well, the price was right.

    Caol Ila 12 is a favorite of mine. I'm going to have to crack open my bottle now.
