I was lucky enough to receive a bottle of Alligator for xmas 2012. I love the Highland sherry casked light flavoured bottles almost as much as peaty whiskies.

To my surprise this had the qualities of both, a wonderfully spicey wave of peat greets you reminding you of the heritage of Islay and then the unexpected light citrus fruit and vanilla washes through over the undertones of smoke.

A delicious creamy, peat smoke/fruity bottle that combines perfectly in a way I wouldn't have thought possible. An instant favourite which will be hard to beat.

Nice review which I can only second. It's a great whisky to be sure! Also, it does get a bit softer and more well mannered with a slight splash of water - which is the exact opposite to what I think when it comes to the Ardbeg TEN.
