10 Year Old Whisky

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Colour
Light gold
 
Smell / Nose
Exceptional balance and depth.  At full strength, the aroma is a seductive mix of toffee and chocolate sweetness, cinnamon spice and medicinal phenols. Fresh citrus and floral notes of white wine are evident as are melon, pear drops, general creaminess, fresh phenolic aroma of seaspray (iodine) and smoked fish. Hickory and coffee emerge later as the most volatile top notes fade.
 
Taste / Palate
An initial moderate and clean sweetness is rapidly followed by a mouthful of deep peat notes, with tobacco smoke and strong espresso coffee, which then gives way to treacle sweetness and liquorice. The mouthfeel is firstly lightly spiced (astringent), then chewing, mouthwatering, full and finally dry.
 
Finish
Long and smoky.  A smoky sweetness is left on the palate, with a crushed peat and sweet malted cereal character.

Good news: You've got impeccable taste in liquor. The not-as-good news? It means it's currently out of stock. Add this bad boy to your wish list and we'll let you know if it comes our way.
For peat-lovers, not fighters, Ardbeg 10yo is probably the highest-quality 'entry-level' single malt on the market, and the distillery many Islay connoisseurs would choose as their favourite. A whirlwind of peat and complex malty flavours, this is an exuberant, in-your-face Whisky to be cherished. It's easy to see why this is so popular - spicy, sweet, and above all smoky. A great dram, well-balanced and with a lot going on.

What a taste!

With a taste that harkens back to the very creation of a lush planet Earth, this one blew my mind.

Somewhere between Laphroaig and Lagavulin. It has the smokey intensity of Laphroaig but not quite. A bit light not too oily quite enjoyable
anonymous
Best islay I've tasted
Mathew
Favorite scotch

The most turf-tasting, phenol rich, peaty whisky ever tasted. Strong but with sweet linger. If you don't rinse the glass afterwards, the smoky smell will hold on for hours!

Natural color. Great peaty flavor. Small vainilla end.
Sean
I love the peaty smoke flavor, long finish but no medicine flavor. This is how scotch should be!
Jeremiah
Sooo good. Sweeter than Laphroaig Triple Wood, just as smokey. I'm ready to try their other expressions now!

It was like drinking a campfire.

Amazing, pure, sweet, smooth, perfect whisky; placing 2nd to my favorite Laphroaig 10yr with a beautiful body and a gorgeous finish. Certainly one of Scotland's best whisky. As Kimmy's beautiful body.

Совершенно мужской вид, для серьёзного настроения. Hello, teacher, tell me what's my lesson . Думаю, хотела бы сопоставить с тёмным шоколадом или вяленой рыбой. Для меня загадка

This is the one that converted me from a highland scotch lover to a full on Islay girl. Beautiful balance! Smoke, peat, fruit, smoke, peat and everything in between. Quite an experience! Now my all time favorite .
