After last posts about Chivas 12 years old and Johnnie Walker Red Label, it’s time to come back to single malts. Ardbeg 10 years old is the primary product of this famous distillery located on Islay. I have wrote about limited Ardbeg Galileo and Ardbog, today my tasting impressions of 10 years old version.

C: straw, white wine;

N: peat, ash alternately with citrus, lemon and lime, in a moment biscuits, vanilla emerge, only to give way to sour tones, it is not particularly hard-hitting, or numbing, for me just right; after a while, white chocolate, milk chocolate interspersed with white pepper; I like these extreme sensations; a drop of water and I got herbal tones, traces of wet earth, salt and the sea coast, it’s all topped with escalating smoke;

T: in the flavor peat impact appears to be stronger, I feel it clearly and with the addition of ash, there are also sparks on the tongue, orange peel, grapefruit peel and grapefruit itself, traces of dark chocolate; I added a little water, then got some sweet tones, followed by salt and anise;

F: long with peat, traces of ash, salt, and a small drop of lemon.

Score: 89.

Ardbeg 10 years old does not disappoint. It is an excellent presentation of the distillery. Relatively affordable price (prices always could be lower), non-chillfiltered and 46% ABV. Let us enjoy with the definition of age – 10 years. In the next few years, these products can be rare.

    No w końcu skusił się Pan na podstawową jednostkę z tej destylarni. Zdecydowanie przystępniejszy dymniak dla moich kubków od laproaigh.

      Ciekawa alternatywa dla Laphroaiga 10 yo i rzeczywiście chyba bardziej przystępny pod kątem torfowego uderzenia 🙂

    Witam ponownie ;).
    Ardbega kocham i rozumiem, Ardbega oddać nie umiem ale…? Czy tylko ja po kilku miesiącach po otwarciu butli czuje w glancairnie sherry, sherry w dymnej otoczce?
    Z wyrazami uznania i osobistymi pozdrowieniami

    Genialna whisky. Kończę pomału butelkę gdyż szkoda tak na raz wypić to wspaniałe dzieło. Dla mnie zdecydowanie lepszy niz Laphroaig 10. Rewelacyjne połączenie dymu torfu ze słodyczą. Każdy łyk jest niesamowity. Finisz dobry chociaż mogłby być trochę dłuższy.

      To jedna z tych butelek, którą zawsze warto mieć w barku.
