“Perhaps the best Ardbeg I have had. Quite delicious complex nose.”
The barrels are charred to such an extent that they start to crack a little on the inside, and this resembles alligator skin, thus the name.
The committee release of Ardbeg Alligator was exceptional and incredibly popular.
This dram has a amber-like color.
Nose (93): more than average. sweet, peat, honey, citrus, vanilla, cinnamon, coffee. Hell more than intense than standard ten years old.
Palate (92): powerful, oily. peat, honey, citrus, vanilla, salt, wood, pepper, dark chocolate.
Finish (90): long. peat, spices, honey, citrus, burnt wood.So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this Ardbeg Alligator Untamed Release with 92 points over 100.
