    I tried this the other day. Man, I am just not a peaty drinker. Funny because that used to be my whisky of choice.

    You can bet the other 65% is less than 10 years old (probably in the 7-8 range) - otherwise they would put an age statement on the bottle.

    I like all the Ardbegs I've tasted, but I haven't had the "bog". I'll take the standard 10 year over all of them.

    It's coming in at $99.00 a bottle here. After diving into the Galileo without trying it first, I'm definitely gonna wait to try this one before buying it.

    Re: Ardbeg Ardbog

    had a pour of this last night. liked it a lot....almost as much as i like alligator, and that's been my favorite release to date. if i can find it for a price that's not too rapey, it will come home with me.

    Ardbeg Ardbog

    Got to try this last night. Started off with the typical young, bold, big Ardbeg peat that I love. Mid-palate was nice as well with some salty cracker notes as the Manzanilla kicked in and began to turn sweet.

    Unfortunately, the finish ruined it for me and I use that term loosely. This is no Galileo flop, a solid dram for sure, but the finish turned a bit sappy/borderline cloying and after 30-45 seconds....chalky. And I HATE chalky.

    Looks like I'll be passing on another Ardbeg release. It pains me to say that.

    Have to agree with Josh here - esp. for $100 a bottle. Had a chance to sample this earlier this week and loved the nose and palate and with water the peat subsided some and a nice malty/fruitiness emerged. But the finish wasn't there for me either - chalky is a good description; kind of bitter/salty to me.

    For those traveling in the Northeast, NH Liquor Commission has Ardbog for $95 a bottle - and they also are having a 15% off sale on American spirits and wines - buy 12 bottles of anything American (wine and/or hooch) and get 15% off your purchase. My budget took a hit as I brought home one Ardbog and a bunch of bourbons - Jefferson's Small batch for $20 net was too cheap to pass up.

    Finally made it to the shelves around here, but just had to pass b/c of all the mixed reviews. Good news is it will sit here for years to come, so I have plenty of time to make a different decision later.

    Passing on the Bog (even at $75) but I did find an '03 bottling of the Ten (L3 041 1135 4ML) yesterday for $39.99 that probably has older whisky in it too .
