    See the Full BevX Featured Review & Beverage of the Week

    Brilliant golden color. The aromatics are incredibly generous and complex offering scents of dried fruits and rich caramel with toffee, butterscotch, oak, bonfire, peat, sea salt, ginger, and dark chocolate. The palate echoes the nose delivering a lush fruit and honey-driven core with assertive flanking notes of smoke, peat, anise, and toasted malt. Full-bodied, while certainly not as powerful as some Ardbeg expressions, with ideal balance thanks to a bright dose of acidity that tames the long, sweet finish. $59.99 – 5 Stars
