Ardbeg 10. Not much intro needed so let's get into it.

Nose: Peat, Dish Soap, Lime, Salt, Creamed Corn

Palate: Big Peat, Sweet Smoke, Fairly Smooth and Oily, Orange Marmalade, Pepper Jack Cheese

Finish: Shorter than I expected. Peat, Orange Zest, Charcoal

I liked it. I didn't enjoy it as much as I enjoy Caol Ila 12, Lagavulin 12 or Lagavulin 16, but that's ok. A solid whisky that everyone should try at least once.

They say that over time the quality of such heavily marketed malts goes down a little bit (in some cases a big bit, though). And in Russia this 10 year old Ardbeg costs like...$166, so I guess I'm not sure I wanna buy this one unless I find a miniature.

$166??? Wow. That's over 3 times the cost in my neck of the woods. Ardbeg 10 has many fans. I think it's good, not great, but I cant believe there are many that would pay $166 for it. Are all single malts that expensive in Russia or is it just Ardbeg?
