This is 'old' news by now, but because of Ardbeg's cult status among whiskylovers, I'd give it a late mention.

Ardbeg is putting out a new release in September this year, by the name of 'Galileo'
Its rumoured to an all 1999 vintage making it around a 12yo and matured in Marsala wine casks and bottled at 49%. Price will, according to rumours, land around the £60-70 mark.

The 'Galileo'-name has also been trademarked in the US, meaning this release will also be available there.
The US Treasury application can be found here
