Every year, the last Saturday of the Islay Festival (Feis Ile) is designated as “Ardbeg Day,” a celebration of the iconic distillery. Since 2012, Ardbeg has commemorated the day with a special, limited edition bottling. The release is accompanied by distillery sponsored parties and celebrations worldwide . Except in Southern California. Why not here? You’d have to ask the good people at Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton. So this year, we’ve decided to take matters into our own hands. The Orange County Scotch club has acquired a bottle of every Ardbeg Day Special Release, from 2012’s “Ardbeg Day” to 2018’s “Grooves.” Many of these are now much sought after, highly collectible bottles. We’re gonna drink ’em.
$40 to try each of these rare whiskies (plus perhaps some bonus pours…)
