Word is that a new Ardbeg is hitting the world state on February 15th, one week from now.  The bottling is for committee members only, but we should be getting an allocation here, at least according to the people at Ardbeg (which is who I would want to hear it from).  The whisky will be called Rollercoaster and it will be bottled at 57.3%, composed of 10 different whiskies with the oldest being from 1997.  Some of it was casked in bourbon and some in sherry, so it will be interesting to see which flavor dominates.  As of right now we are not taking pre-orders, but more information will be made available as I get it.  I can't wait to try this!
