Ardbeg 10 Years 700ML
Category: Whisky / Single Malt Whisky
Ardbeg 10 Years Old is revered around the world as the peatiest, smokiest, most complex islay single malt scotch whisky 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. Named World Whisky of the Year in 2008. Non chill-filtered.
Colour: Light Gold.
Nose: Sweet peat, coal, Caramac bars, a faint floral soapy note, pepper and chilli.
Palate: Very soft, mellow entry, then the spices and peat come through in a big way. Powerful, but with a balancing sweetness. Great length.
Finish: Long and warming, with the smoke and pepper lasting longest.
