Customer Rating

The general release of 2011's much anticipated Ardbeg Committee Release - Alligator. It's named for the high level of char on the inside of some of the casks used for maturation, which makes the wood look like alligator skin.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting notes by Toby Q

    This Islay-gator has a straw-amber complexion, and a nose of sweet caramel, tropical fruit and a hint of pine. I found the palate to be very different to the house style with lots of chewy oak and spicy rich ginger, caramel nougat and a long elegant finish which gave me memories of rooms layered with clouds of cigar smoke and an open fire.

    Incredible! I am a huge Ardbeg fan, but this takes it to another level even when compared with the exquisite uigeadail. I will treasure every drop of this bottle as seems to be very difficult to find... Definitely one to be kept hidden from guests or for your very nearest and dearest. I won''t attempt to go in to tasting notes, but if you are a fan of Ardbeg, this superb bottle will have you grinning from ear to ear at every sip. Can be drunk neat comfortably.

    Sweet barbeque with real spice and a lingering smokiness. It's like a small battle in your mouth. A really special whisky. I remember being bemused by the luke warm reviews at the time of release. The price now proves that those reviews didn't reflect the opinions of dram consumers. I've drunk 3 bottles..I've refrained from opening the 4th. May just have a last one..

    It is indeed all gone. We're looking into getting some more, but it's been flying off the shelves everywhere...

    It's gone already? Any idea if and when you'll get more?

    Fabulous! Enjoyed in the bar at the Hotel Balmoral in Edinburgh - the perfect place to taste a wonderful dram.
