Whisky Reviews for Ardbeg Alligator
7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.09 points
- This really just ticks every box I have.
Sharp smoke, meat/barbecue, white chocolate.
Smoke, leather, soy-like salt, char, pepper.
Chocolate, coffee, smoke, cigar, ginger. Long.
- My bottle has been opened for about 4+ years and it's about 1/3 full. Guess what, it still tastes great! Goes to show you that a heavily peated whisky at cask strength will probably be good for a while, even when mostly empty. This is not true for a low ABV fruity whisky though... Tasting this, I am beginning to wonder if there aren't some older whiskies in here..
Addendum: my bottle has been opened for about 8 years ago... still terrific. Cask strength, heavily peated whisky will keep for a long, long time even when opened.
- This was very allocated here in the states. Originally I only could
receive one bottle from Del Mar Wine.com however now it is in stock and
is readily available to purchase. I love this Islay because it is
powerful in the beginning and tappers off nicely to a sweet vanilla
