This is a very powerful, Earthy and robust Whisky with a long finish. There is an explosion of smoke and peat mixed with a medicinal tang. It is also tinged with a slight bitterness which fades and is replaced by a more mellow smoky sweetness.

There is a seaweed and brine and undertone which is crisp but is followed by a smoother vanilla finish with a slight hint of apple and spices.

Did I mention that it is very smoky?

I would say that the ardbeg10 is a more complex and rewarding dram. It has more depth and has a citrus element which lightens without diminishing. The cask strength laphroaig is still a close 2nd but if I were only able to drink one I would choose the Ardbeg 10 as I think is is a more complete experience.
