My view: Ardbog is best, then corry and then oogie. Bare in mind you're comparing 3 of the, potentially, best whiskies in the world. 4 if you chuck in the ten year old. Bottle for bottle Ardbeg is probably the best distillery in the world.
When I moved from wristwatches to whisky, I thought that this hobby would cost less
. On average I think it may be catching up. But someone once told me, if it ends up in your tummy, and you enjoy it, then it's worth it.
I have just ordered all three-Corry, Uigeadail and Arbog. The Ardbog has a limit of one per customer.The Corry and Uige is listed as "limited edition" as well by the shop but no purchase amount limit.*EDIT all three have limit of one per customer at this particular purveyor*

Personally, I still find great enjoyment from the Uigeadail, but no longer worry about having it on hand as it's place has been taken by the Corryvreckan, which while others may not feel the same, I find Corryvreckan to be an even more excellent version of Uigeadail, and even for the extra cost of entry, prefer to pay in order to have what it offers.
As already noted by Opel, Corryvreckan and Uigeadail are both readily available and if they were to be discontinued, you'd have plenty of time to get them.
This may surprise you, but I still think of the least expensive Ardbeg, 10, as my absolute favorite, and the others as special occasion drinks, not because of the price, but what it offers in terms of nose and flavour.
My thoughts exactly, other than the views on Ardbog, of which I will probably never get a chance to try.
Thankfully I've had plenty of 10, Uigeadail and Corryvreckan to keep my spirits up though.
When I am finished with the Lag16 this week I will pick up a Ardbeg10, and save the Corry,Uige and Arbog for a special occasion or when my "top shelf" friends drop by. I think I will go 10>Uige>corry>Ardbog. Maybe they are using scare tactics regarding the corry and uige as been limited. Well, it worked on me !
