Ardbeg 10 Years TEN

Ardbeg TEN stands for a very intense, peated Whisky that you can enjoy regularly. Its taste is full and intense like the Isle of Islay itself. While tasting you always have this smoky note lingering over everything. A very nice non chill filtered whisky indeed.

Finish: Peat Smoke, Sugar, Malts, Bonfire
Peat Smoke Sweet Malt Bonfire Smoke

Comment: Nosing brings a very vibrant peat smoke and hints of spices to the nose, and it is well balanced when tasting, spreading more on the sweetened parts of the tongue. Finish comes strong with Bonfire intensity and smokey aromas. An absolute for a Holiday season!
