Ardbeg Alligator

Although relatively new to the market, already this rare limited release, made with heavy “alligator char” inside the barrel, has found cult status among peat-loving whiskey enthusiasts. The aroma is intriguing, briny, peppery and pungent, with a breeze of spearmint. On the palate an insistent mix of smoke and sweet caramel evokes barbecue sauce. Kara Newman
