The Renaissance was launched at Feis Ile 2008, and was available at all major retailers within a few weeks after the launch.

Recently, I became aware of a second bottle date (L8 233 16:15 7ML) for the Renaissance, and it includes a separate bottling line from the old (4ML), miniature (5ML) and new (6ML) lines that Ardbeg has used in the past and present. The "Ardbeg Project" fan that submitted this code said the print was a little different, and the filling level on both of his bottles was pretty low. Subsequently, I found a Norwegian forum that also referred to this second bottling date. I'll post more details as I get them, but this is an interesting discovery since I was told the Renaissance was only bottled once.
