Alligator Bottling Note

Strictly limited to 2 per customer

It's finally here! The hotly anticipated official release of Ardbeg Alligator will simply fly off our shelves! It's aged in a similar style to the standard 10 year old, except for the fact that a portion of the whisky was aged in heavily charred barrels. 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 will follow suit...

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Stunning aromas of charcoal, mulled wine and lemon icing sugar. Very creamy, with notes of vanilla and yoghurt, with a huge BBQ note. Some gingerbread and tangy apricots, and burning brown sugar.

Palate: Creamy and zesty, with a huge whack of grapefruit and lemon, as well as BBQ sauce, ginger and orange zest. Like a really toasty rye whiskey in parts, with hints of icing sugar, cocoa, gingernut biscuits and intense smoke.

Finish: Sweet and creamy with peppery, crackling peat smouldering away for hours.

Overall: One of the best Ardbegs we've ever tasted. A mind-blowing malt!

    Toffee Orange and Leather

    Briny leather nose with lemon cream and a multitude of other complexities. Peppery palate with leather and vanilla. Bitter nut and tobacco finish. If you thought the Uigeadail was not salty/tangy/bitter enough, try this. Bottle aging enriches with more toffee and orange, plus more char on the palate.

    It has a somewhat slippery initial texture that becomes almost scaly as it wraps you up.. It takes you into an amazing death roll of surprises before the dark inexplicable satisfaction overwhelmes your tongue and you gasp for air.. An eternal aftertaste lingers on and on once you see the light.. I've got two bottles and I'm scared to touch them..

    Superb whisky, great peat and very smooth. Slightly different to the committee release but nearly as good and for half the price of a CR bottle. Well done Ardbeg.....

    Sorry - that last review should have been a 10. My slow brain fixated on the 5 star display and assumed the rating dropdown worked on the same scale. Master of Malt - a free website usability assessment for you there.

    Extraordinary stuff - just incredible and to my mind worth every penny. If it's back in stock snap it up. You won't regret it.

    Lovely

    I found the peat in this Ardbeg to be quite soft and smooth. Great flavours, quite different from the other Ardbegs in the current range. Lovely whisky.
