Ardbeg Scotch 10 Year Old Single Malt

Ardbeg Scotch 10 Year Old Single Malt 750ML        
Sku: 15030

Ardbeg Ten Years Old is revered around the world as the peatiest, smokiest, most complex single malt of them all. Yet it does not flaunt the peat; rather it gives way to the natural sweetness of the malt to produce a whisky of perfect balance. Typically most whiskies are chill-filtered and reduced to a strength of 40% ABV. Ardbeg Ten Years Old, however, is non chill-filtered and has a strength of 46% ABV, thus retaining maximum flavour, at the same time giving more body and added depth. Itís whisky with none of the goodness taken out!

Tasting notes

Exceptional balance and depth. The aroma is a seductive mix of toffee and chocolate sweetness and cinnamon spice. An initial moderate and clean sweetness is followed by deep peat notes with tobacco smoke and strong espresso coffee, which gives way to sweetness and licorice. A smoky sweetness is left on the palate, with a crushed peat and sweet malted cereal character.

Ardbeg is considered by Whiskey connoisseurs to be the best Islay Malt Whiskey.

For peat lovers only. Pale straw, briny nose. On the palate, this is like a time-release smoke capsule-after a flash of sweetness, the smoke just keeps rolling on in waves. Water adds some softness and mitigates the smoke a bit. Well-constructed and classic. Good value. - K.N.

(Great Value,Tried & True Award)- Bright gold color. Reluctant bouquet is measured but potent early-on then with aeration it explodes in waves of sea salt, sea air, campfire. Flavor direction is all about the peat suddenly as the malt takes a back seat until the aftertaste when it reemerges with a bang.
