Ardbeg 10

 

 

 

Distillery: Ardbeg

Expression: 10 year old

Vol: 46%

 

 

 

 

Nose

Peat, toast, coal fire. Malty sweetness, dry and a little bitter. Sweet tropical fruit in the background.

Taste

Very sweet. A charcoal, slightly bitter and heavily peated note. Keeping it in the mouth brings out some serious flavors. First very tingly, after that; big sweetness and tropical fruit. Banana, papaya and pineapple. A bit drying again, but overall quite splendid.

Finish
Long, sweet, peaty. A slight bitter note but watery sweetness and tropical fruit. The peat is very long lasting, some malt as well, and at the end soft sweetness.
Overall
The taste is the winner here. Very impressive. The nose is slightly disappointing and the finish is average.
