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.

Aroma: peat smoke

Taste: peat smoke

Finish: peat smoke

Comment: I like peat smoke, my palette is fairly refined, but my ability to explain the flavors is not. This is one of my favorite single malts Barr none.

Comment:
What I love so much about Ardbeg 10 is it's strong and powerful notes that carry through from the nosing all the way into the finish. Smoked meat with sea salt and floral honey really show up for me. There are some slight Lemon Peel and Malt notes that accompany the floral honey as well as some Dark Chocolate and Leather notes that accent the smoked meat flavors. This is my desert island dram, and the rare cask strength bottling released to Japan is my white whale. 90/100
