Single Cask 2742 has the lowest output for any single cask ever released from the Ardbeg Distillery. At just 36 bottles, this is probably the gem for Ardbeg collectors, and an even more unlikey notch in the belt for the Ardbeg Connoisseur seeking to taste all releases from Ardbeg. One of the most prominent Ardbeg collectors, Geert Bero, said these were released to the Hotel Bars of the World, which makes it an even more difficult bottle to acquire.

UPDATE: On June 27, 2009 - A bottle sold for 8114 Euros on Kruger's Whisky Auction.
