Ardbeg Almost There Islay single malt Scotch whiskey. Limited edition 2007 bottling; the third of the 'Young Ardbeg Series' (Very Young, Still Young, Almost There, Renaissance) leading to the all new ten year old in 2008.
Enormous peat and vanilla. Youthful and zesty but definitely more creamy and rounded from extra ageing.
