Customer Rating
A tad less peaty than early bottlings, the classic Ardbeg 17yo is still a great whisky, but is sadly becoming very thin on the ground as demand increases and supply runs low - it's now a good few years since owners Glenmorangie discontinued it. The first bottling of this sparked the revival of Ardbeg's fortunes after the takeover by Glenmorangie.

Please note, there is some minor damage to the boxes.

    was lucky to get a bottle on my trip to islay for 50£ ten years ago, there was no bottles left in sweden, it´s long gone, but my memories of this wonderful whisky will never fade

    All I've had is a miniature I got at the distillery a few years ago, but the impression it made was anything but diminutive. Remains my favourite dram.

    I have been fortunate to have owned and drunk two bottles of this some years ago and it remains to this day my favourite dram by some margin. Absolutely superb balance; take all the best parts of the Isly malts and this is it! Can't justify the £300 now but if you have one just enjoy!

    Just retrieved a bottle of this from our loft, my father gives a bottle of Whiskey away every year to someone that helps him out. When he worked 12 odd years ago he would always come home with a few different bottles from Reps, glad now he never told them he didn't drink. As it looked a bit different from the normal bottles, I stopped him giving it away till I checked the price, thank god I did? How do I go about selling a boxed 17yr old?

    This is an amazing dram, me and my friend polished off a bottle this year when we visited Arran. looking to buy another bottle, its a bit pricier than when I first got a bottle for £17 about six years ago. Beautiful dram!!

    My husband left his unopened boxed bottle behind when he ran off with his girlfriend.....5 years ago - very nice to see the price rising from £40.....means he will actually "pay his way" at some point in the future.......tee hee........

    Ah THE classic 'drinking' Ardbeg! Used to buy it frequently when it was ?30-?35 quid. Nearly as good as the fabled 1974. Fond memories of mountain days and bothy nights with this dram. Sadly missed. Uigeadail is good too though.

    Just had one bought for my 40th by a very good friend. Do i drink it or look at it. So happy

    Gutted that I opened this after it lurked in the cupboard....not really, quite terrrrrific....this is just so full on peat with finese, quite the fantastic, smooth, silky and stunning ardbeg

  • 27 January 2010

    Gosh, I bought it for 29 quid in Edinburg in 1997.

  • 14 January 2010

    This was about £35, not £45 in 1998 - in Scotland at least. I know because I used to work in an offy in Glasgow. Just shows what a legend this bottling has become.

  • 13 January 2010

    Hard to believe that it now costs over 200 pounds. I can remember first buying this back in 1998 for 45 pounds from asda of all places!!! That was when i first fell in love Ardbeg. It is an absolute gem of a whisky.

    I came back from Japan in June 09 and found a bottle of this in my storage room. It had been there 12 years. It's November and have about 1/4 left. It is a very decadent way to ride the depression unemployed. Pathetic but heavenly. :P

    17 yr old is my favourite of all Ardbegs! My final bottle of 17 year old is only opened at "the bells" for me and my wife. Absolutely fantastic !

  • 18 December 2008

    I bought this malt for my husband as a welcome home after working away. it coast me ?60.00 at the time and now it has increased. he enjoyed it so much he finnished before he knew it. i know begs for another bottle has a gift. but to be honest i would not mind paying the increased price the enjoyment he got out the taste was worth every penny!!!!
