    Love this release and find similarity to the first batch. Either way it comes, it`s incredible. I agree with alectron, http://www.ardbegproject.com is great for facts. It is also a good gauge to check bottles authenticity if your purchasing online.

    Airigh Nam Beist 1990 is a delicious vintage bottling from the ongoing
    success story that is Ardbeg. Sadly now discontinued due to exhausted
    stocks, `the Beist` was an extremely popular Ardbeg, with assertive and
    powerful peatiness and a lovely honeyed edge. Oh, and it`s pronounced
    `Arry nam Baysht`.

  10. alectron did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Most people know, but since this is simply wrong on here and people start citing it as fact - there is no `Batch 02` of ANB!
    There have been multiple bottling runs in 2007, and judging by the time difference inbetween, these are most likely from different vatting runs as well.
    So here are a few bottle codes from 2007, Courtesy of http://www.ardbegproject.com:

    L7 058 06:07 4ML
    L7 058 08:59 4ML 750ml US release
    L7 143 05:54 4ML
    L7 297 04:39 4ML
    L7 325 23:28 4ML
    L7 326 19:15 4ML 750ml US release
