Winning bid: £620.00
Lot number: 076-0707

Given the success and cult-like fan base that Ardbeg has recently enjoyed, it is almost impossible to imagine that the distillery was closed, on and off, for 15 years until it was purchased by Glenmorangie. Sitting on the southern coast line, the current distillery was founded in 1815, the original having been destroyed by excise men. The Ardbeg spirit still is fitted with a purifier which many believe accounts for its fruity, zesty character.

This Oogling is a marriage of three ex-bourbon hogsheads of Very Young Ardbeg with one sherry butt of 2002 Ardbeg to create a balance of refreshing sweetness.

Bottled: 2006

Cask Type: Three Bourbon Hogsheads of Very Young Ardbeg and one Sherry Butt

59.9% ABV / 70cl

Bottle Number: One of only 1,392 bottles released

Please examine the images of the bottle, packaging and labels carefully and satisfy yourself as to their condition before making a bid.
