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.

Comment:
The color is very pale than expected even I heard it has so. It's totally different from what I had a impression at Ardbeg 10yo. It's not too much phenol / peaty whisky. it's very present, Well balanced one between peat, honey and orange. I can not feel such a strong alcohol level around 46%.
Even when adding water, the structure of this whisky flavor and palate doesn't corrupt.
