    KABOOOM A 100 POINTS WHISKY HERE. Oh my god this was perfect. I am a member of Ardbeg Committee but never had one of this special releases. Well, as you can already imagine it was an incredible experience. This one is the review for the Dark Cove 110, since the "93" is the regular one. Its called 110 because of its alcohol proof, meaning it has 55%abv. Amazing dark chesnut color. It is the darkest ardbeg ever, that is why it has this name. On the nose: Is this sherry with peat!? Smells WONDERFUL. The sherriness fights this bacon/buttery peat. Blackberry marmalde with peat. No alcohol note on the nose, Strawberry marmalade. Amazing. On the palate: thick Blackberry marmalade With peat. Raisins and strawberries, homd it in the palate till it burns like fire. Chilli. Aftertaste is strong but super pleasant. Long peppery ashy finish. Overall this perhaps is the best whisky i have had in 2019 so far, it will definitively reach my top ten in december and should be found and bought. 100 over 100, SLAINTE MHATH, friends.

    Watering this to about 50% opens an already amazing Scotch into something truly incredible.
