How do you know when you buy too much Ardbeg?

It is difficult to procure the drams you need from any local liquor store; however, some stores can be quite accommodating when it comes to ordering your supplies. The primary store I go through in Key West is Conch Town Liquors.

The good people at Conch Town have always ordered what I need when it comes to Ardbeg and (providing I buy a case or two) have given me quite a good deal. I tend to buy a good amount and as it turns out, buy the most in the entire state.

I received a call from Conch Town Liquors letting me know that The Ardbeg Chopper Tour was on its way to Key West, as their store was the number four seller of Ardbeg in the entire state. This was quite a thing as I am the only buyer. I asked the seller if the distributor understood that they were coming to the keys for just one guy, and he replied: “yeah, I told them it was one guy buying, and they said that was not possible.”

It was not possible that one human would buy such an amount—combine the fact that this store (number 4) is competing with cities like Miami, it does seem insane. So, the good people of Ardbeg came. And only people I invited to the tasting showed up, so it was literally a tasting held for me—that doesn’t suck. We all drink, however, most of the time the liquor company doesn’t have a party in your home town in honor of your copious consumption.

Thank you Ardbeg.

  3. Very cool! You may get the award for being one of the ultimate peat freaks…

    • Well, I asked the distributor for a letter stating that I was the largest buyer in Florida so I could frame it and but it next to my bar; however, I have not received any such document yet.
