  1. pere scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Ardbeg "Juniper Cask"

    There is definitely some juniper and even gin on the nose besides the smoke. Also the taste is very fresh with some menthol, citrus and maritime aromas besides a bit tarry smoke and a hint of wood. It's a bit odd, but then again very interesting.
