Ardbeg Uigeadail

As a result of an inquiry that I made earlier late last week, I received this email regarding when the subject matter will hit the US.
"Many thanks for your enquiry, which has been passed to me in my capacity as the expatriate (Louisville, KY based) regional director (Americas) with Glenmorangie plc, proprietors of the wondrous Ardbeg distillery.
I am delighted to tell you that Uigeadail will be widely available in the U.S. as it is not an allocated product. The first shipment is due into Norfolk (VA) around 5th May, so I would hazard a guess that it will start to get into retail stores during the second half of June. Boston is likely to get it in fairly swiftly, but the likes of Ft. Myers will be slower. If there are specific stores where you buy single malts, and you can send me the names/locations of them, I will ask our importer to check with the relevant state wholesalers in order to establish when they are likely to get the product into them – if you can give me some idea of the preferred stores, so that we don’t risk loading up goods into places where it might not move too fast and would then upset the store managers, that would be a great help.
Thanks for your interest in the “Jewel of Islay”, as it is known on the island.
Regards, Anthony Burnet"

I just found out that Glenmorangie's Sales Director for the Americas is having a tasting at Federal Wine and Spirits in Boston this Monday, May 3. They will be tasting:
Ardbeg: 10 y.o. Uigedail
Glenmorangie: burgundy wood finish (new) 10 y.o. 15 y.o. Portwood
I probably won't be able to go because it's scheduled from 4 to 5 p.m. and I'll be working at that time.

I have a couple of friends that might be interested and work close to State Street. I'm going to ask them to go and report back. I'm not available either but hopefully they can make it.
Thanks for the info Sean.
P.S. I wonder if there are any other tastings across the country?

This is what I got back from the Sales Director;
"Hi Dave – the tom-toms seem to work extremely well… the spies out there are on the button as I am indeed scheduled to do this tasting from 15:00 – 16:30.
I will ensure that in the event of a tasting being set up in Ft. Myers, you are duly alerted."

Do you know which (if any) stores in Norfolk will carry this? Rob

I know in Southern California, it is expected by mid-June. Also, the Glenmorangie Burgundy is due in mid-May.

It's ggod that there seems to be a good deal of interest in this version of Ardbeg. I'll let you know what I hear on the VA connection! Dave >
