Peat fan, but I enjoy all sort of Scotch

I have sampled perhaps a dozen different Ardbegs including Provenance, and I have to say that Airigh Nam Beist has to be my favorite. At 46% abv it doesn't need any water (and please, no ice ever!)
The nose is so nice that I can enjoy this without even drinking any - or perhaps just a small taste on my tongue. Smoke and peat in perfect harmony, make me feel as if I'm sitting by a bonfire at the beach on a breezy summer evening.
The taste and extra long finish make this a classic malt for me.
The most amazing thing about this whisky is the price - I cannot believe it's down to just $69/bottle. I would be happy to pay several times that amount, and considering that this malt has been replaced by an inferior product in my opinion (Corryvreckan), it is even more amazing that it is still available at all.
K&L prices can be kind of whacky - sometimes really high and sometimes really low. In this case, their price is too-good-to-be-true low! Buy some now because they are *not* making any more of this!
