Nose - lots of peat and tar also petrol. After a few minutes smoked meat and pear notes. Palate is rich, smoky and meaty, very pleasant. Extremely long finish. Considering its young age, this whisky offers incredible balance. Great value for reasonable price. Great value for reasonable price.

I would not consider this "entry level" If this was my first taste of peat I'd have been scared off. After developing an appreciation for peat I do like this. But it is not a mild one...

Yep, Ardbeg Ten is high-quality stuff and a very good value as noted.

Heck, if you define a range by its age statements, this "entry-level" bottle is the TOP of the Ardbeg range.

It was my first ever peaty whisky and I've fallen in love with Ardbeg. So writing on my personal experience - peat monster for beginners, though my fascination has never ended. And I mentioned it's an entry level peat MONSTER. But you are right, there are a few peaty whiskies which could be less demanding.
