Re: A wee dram from holiday

Homer - no, he was from the East Riding of Yorkshire, but he was posted to Wick for a couple of years in the 1920s. My father credited his two years at Wick High School with turning him from a layabout into a useful member of society .

OM - It's not so much that they limit the supply of Ardbeg, it's a small distillery and the whisky has got very popular, but the price probably has more to do with it being owned by Louis Vuitton Mot Hennessy and therefore having a "premium brand" status. However, I saved 10 a bottle buying it from Master of Malt rather than direct from Ardbeg. You're quite right that I will enjoy it - it's my favourite . I shall have to figure out how to post pics on this site as I have a few from my tour of the distillery with an E-300 .
