Ardbeg 1972 Douglas Laing 29 Year Old 75cl / The Ardbeggeddon​

A sherry cask Ardbeg, distilled in 1972 and bottled in November 2001 at 29 years old by Douglas Laing.

You would not think it to see it now, but Ardbeg had a difficult time of it for much of the 20th century. The distillery was bought in a joint venture between Hiram Walker and DCL in 1959, both intending to supply their blends. The subsequent years were very successful, but DCL backed out in 1979 (closing many of their other distilleries a few years later), and Hiram Walker then struggled in the 1980s era oversupply when interest in blended Scotch was waning. They closed it down for the majority of the decade. It re-opened briefly in the 1990s before being revived for good by Glenmorangie plc in 1997. 

The Old Malt Cask series is one of the most established independent labels on the market. It was launched by Douglas Laing in 1998 and bottled by them until 2013 when the brand became part of the Hunter Laing portfolio instead.

Specially selected for the Plowed Society by The Whisky Shop to commemorate The Ardbeggeddon gathering in Las Vegas in 2002.

One of 227 bottles.
