Single Cask 2761 was bottled for Feis Ile 2010 and available for purchase at 10:00 AM, Saturday May 29th at Ardbeg Open House Day.
Rumors were flying, placing the price at around £220, which seemed to bother many of the Ardbeg followers and Feis Ile attendees. Ultimately, those queued up were given a last minute reprieve, and the price was lowered to £125. The "once-agitated" Ardbeg faithful reigned in the "verbal stampede", and the Distillery went on to have a "Smashing" Open Day.
Interestingly enough, Joel and Nick from Cask Strength.net tasted this very same Cask 2761 the year before on the Warehouseman's Tour. Please see this entry on their blog for tasting notes and much, much more whisky excitement from Feis Ile 2010.
