Ardbeg 10 Year Old 75cl

The reviewed bottle, marked L10 152, has been open for over 2 years. It is 70% full. The flavours have changed relatively little over that time.

Nose: relatively strong intensity peat and smoke, medium and high pitched barley malt, muted honey, and some brine. Delicious.

Taste: excellent translation onto the palate; the flavours are pointed and attention-getting. Sweetness is in abundance, more so than in the nose. This bottle has gotten a bit sweeter with time open.

Finish: long and strong continuation of flavours from the palate. They stay the same over a good span of time.

Balance: if you like the "sweet peat/smoke and brine" style of malts, then you will probably like Ardbeg Ten. You don't get the wine finishes with this, but then again, most peat-lovers can do without wine finishes for their malts. Within the genre of strongly flavoured highly peated smokey malt whiskies, Ardbeg Ten is a solid performer and an excellent value for money.

Funny, I just reviewed Ardbeg 10 as well...I presume your bottle is the standard one that is currently available - and not the ancient relic pictured?

Yes, standard 750 ml Western Hemisphere version.
