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.

English:
At last, I'm going to try THE ARDBEG!!! Yesterday I tried the Laphroaig 10yo and I was positive surprised. Tomorrow I will have a dram of Octomore 7.1! Oh! What a happy day!
And now: the Ardbeg:
Color: bright gold
Nose: extraordinary! Flowers, citrus fruits, vanilla, caramel, smoke, backed apples, prunes, oak cask
Palate: strong, intense, sweet, fruity, peaty, vanilla, caramel
Finish: long and pleasant, smokey and intense
Compared with Lapghroaig 10yo, this one is much more complex, but less smokey, less peaty
Definitely one of the best whyskies I've ever tasted. Actually it's going to be my number TWO, after Aberlour A'bunadh
93/100

Deutsch:
Endlich! Ich probiere DEN ARDBEG! Gestern habe ich den Laphroaig 10 Jahre alt gehabt und ich war positiv überrascht. Morgen werde ich den Octomore 7.1 probieren. Oh! Was für eine shöne Zeit! Und jetzt: der Ardbeg
Farbe: hell Gold
Nase: Ausgezeichnet! Blumen, Zitrus, Vanille, Karamell, Rauch, Backapfel, getrocknete Pflaumen, Eichenfass
Körper: stark, intensiv, süß, fruchtig, torfig, Vanille, Karamell
Finish: lang und angenehm, rauchig und intensiv
Im Vergleich zu den Laphroaig 10, der Ardbeg ist viel mehr komplex, aber nicht so rauchig wie Laphroaig. Definitiv einer der besten Whiskys ich überhaupt probiert habe! Eigentlich ist er meine Nummer ZWEI. Gleich hinter den Aberlour A'bunadh
