I think it is a limited release bottle and now onsale on line (but shipment only within the UK). 13,000 bottle area so not really so limited
But it is a very nice Ardbeg. A full 56% mouthfeel and true to its label, it is a nice combo between the peaty austere style of Ardbeg and the sweet herby style too. Full on mouth presence but never overtly too extreme on the attack. Lovely bottle and worth getting your hands on one ....if you can find it.

Don't know. Since I'n a member of the Ardbeg Committee, I received an invitation to a special Ardbeg Day event last Thursday at Julio's. Because of all the stuff going on in my life last week, I decided I just couldn't go so I gave my invite to Alex (from the shop). He went and picked up a bottle each of the Ardbeg Day and the Alligator. I went into the shop Saturday after the funeral with my daughter from CA to get her some gluten free beer. Alex gave me a bag and said it was for me. It was the Ardbeg Day. BTW, if you're interested, I think he wants to sell the Alligator. All that said, I think there may be some available. I'll check when I go back into the shop on Wed. I'll be in from 9 to 5 Wed and Thurs. If you can get in either day, let me know and I'll bring in the Day.
