Well this is my tuppence worth on the Ardbeg 10. this afternoon I had a nice session with my neighbor which involved a Chivas 12, an Ardbeg 10, and a 21 y.o Glenfiddich.
Powerful, slightly woody and lending a strong backing to peat on the nose.
the body Packs a nice little punch with an altogether smooth, well rounded and significant tinge of salt and peat. Smokey on the uptake, yet not overly medicinal or ashy.
An easy, warm, smoky and considerate finish with a lingering sense of contentment.
Overall impression: This is a great drop with distinct Islay qualities, leaving you with a warm feeling and an overall sense of appreciation for the Ardbeg line in general. Doesn't break the bank and marries up well well with a Montecristo 4. A well chosen 10.
An 89 from me.
