I had the chance to taste the islay-gator at an event. I knew it was there and I started with the ardbeg table so I can taste it while my taste buds are still alive !

NOSE: burnt wood with cigar in it, fire camp smoke also. But I found it a bit shy. I expected a more powerful nose

MOUTH: cigar, chocolate, coffee, smoke and peat... lots of burnt note. You can see that this whisky is young

FINALE: long and burnt with cigar notes.

CONCLUSION: A very nice dram, Ardbeg created something new and interesting, although it is still signed by the distillery characteristics fire camp smoke. I think the gator is a tad shy for a so powerful animal, but maybe it has something to do with is young age and the price is maybe a bit high for this baby. But is worth tasting it for sure...
