Once the Whisky of the Year.

The Ardbeg distillery is arguably one of the greatest distilleries on Earth. It produces one of the most peated Scotch Whiskies. The distillery was started in the early 18th century on the south coast of the isle of Islay, Argyll and Bute, Scotland, and is now owned by Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy. During the years it was closed and reopened several times, as the majority of other distilleries in Scotland, and changed owners many times; however it has never lost the genuine devotion of producing The Ultimate Islay Malt.

Ardbeg 10 Years Old is real Islay classic. It’s one of the World’s peatiest and smokiest single malts, and is revered by both peat and malt-heads around the globe. It seems like that Ardbeg has an innate quality which makes it highly collectible. Usually they’re tough to get and increase in price over time, so you could consider them a good investment. It was pronounced World Whisky of the Year by Jim Murray in 2008 - one year before the Ardbeg Uigeadail enjoyed the same award.

After the pleasant surprise of the Laphroaigh 10, it was obvious that it wouldn't take long for my wanting to try and taste the Ardbeg. Glad I did! I feel they're at the same time so different, yet similar. As with the Laphroaigh, I love the strong, bold character, including the peat and smoke, wich quickly gives way to a myriad of other notes. Definitely more earthy than the Laphroaigh, but I need some more tasting to explore them further. Hard to decide between them both though!

Stephen,
Smoky and peaty! If that's not your thing - stay away. The nose is sweet with hints of vanilla and almond, and taste is Peat all the way. Thumbs up.
Tommaso
Tommaso,
I had high expectations given the rave reviews, but was disappointed. Too much smoke for me, and the finish was too bitter. Nose was quite pleasant - even though I disliked some sulphur notes - but as soon as I put the whisky in my mouth the smoke seemed to overpower every other flavor. Maybe my palate isn't developed enough!

I think my whiskey tasting palate is too young for Ardbeg, I'll give it another try in a few years time.

The Holy Grail of Peatiness for me. Rich smokey leather with the subtle hints of citrus fruit. It's marvelous.
