    [April, 2022] Serge is perfectly right: This is not just a clownish idea, this simply proves that the whisky industry adopts more and more to the rules of investment banking where it simply does not matter if there is any substance to a product as long as grabby customers buy it. I still remember times (not that long ago) when people tasted a dram first before buying a pricey bottle and many shops readily offered this convenient service to potential buyers.

    If this was a serious experiment they would have done it and checked the outcome in secret. If the result is good they would create a new product and prepare for its production immediately, and if it was bad - which is more likely - nobody would ever heard of it. Instead they decided to capitalise on the stupidity and greediness of some of their customers and sell all the experiment's questionable results for a hell of bucks in the virtual market way before the bottles are released, thus enabling adventurers to resell it for even more bucks without anybody knowing anything about it except for a fancy story. This tells a lot about what they think about their customer base, and I am proud to announce I will no longer belong to it.

    Hey Ardbeg or Macallan or Dalmore, here is another idea: Why not sink a cask into a cesspool and let it mature there? I am absolutely convinced there will be unique flavours to discover after serving the dram. The whisky world turns grotesque...
    • Nose
      ...smells like (straight out of) the rotten brain of a bog mummy to me, sorry folks.
    • Taste
      Have you ever tasted a piece of freshly-cut peat? I did (simply out of curiosity on Islay) and no, it is not tasty!
    • Finish
      I am absolutely not sure if this plays out for any investor in the end as the whisky history saw numerous high-priced releases of rather low quality that generated nothing else than losses for the buyers over decades. But unlike to the shining stories of excellent drams nobody writes about these. Nonetheless, good luck to all who placed this bet...

    I've actually bought two bottles. One to leave as an NFT to see how the situation will evolve and one to add to my physical Ardbeg collection cause i want to see it on my shelves for the rest of my life.

    None of your reviews are real reviews, but just shitty comments of people who can't afford this bottle or don't approve this move.
    So this gives me the right to say mine.

    Stop arguing about the price. We all know it is unjustified.

    It's the first NFT of Arbeg history and the first regulated, bottled and pubblically sold experiment of this kind (buried casks). Last but not least, there are 456 bottles and no others will be produced.

    It is just a collection piece and NOT a "Will drink" bottle. Probably no one will ever open one, if not someone who bought at least two bottles.

    It is all about "I have one, you don't." and we all know that rare and unaffordable bottles make rich collectors crazy. Would you ever buy a $100.000 Macallan? I don't think so. But why aren't people upset and obsessed with it?

    Buy your 50$ bottles, drink them and don't break everyone balls.
