Description

Ardbeg 10 Offical Tasting Notes

Nose: Exceptional balance and depth. At full strength, the aroma is a beguiling 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 and a gentle creaminess. There is also the fresh phenolic aroma of sea spray and smoked fish. Hickory and coffee emerge later as the most volatile top notes fade. With water, the depth of the peat opens up, at once revealing layers of phenols with gristy peat and leather followed by medicinal phenols (carbolic soap) and a whiff of wood smoke. However, the sweetness of vanilla and the fragrance of citrus fruits are never far behind, maintaining the balance and intrigue.
Palate: An initial moderate and clean sweetness 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, then chewing, and mouth-watering and full, finally drying.
Finish: Long and smoky. A smoky sweetness is left on the palate, with a crushed peat and sweet-malted cereal character.

    Tasting Notes By Dave Broom
    Nose: Astoundingly smoky, yet delicate with subtle tarry notes behind. With water the smoke dies a little and raisin and caramelised apple notes emerge.
    Palate: An immediate waft of peat smoke. Full, robustly flavoured with turf and lapsang souchong tea.
    Finish: Salty, long and filled with fragrant peat reek.
    Comment: A punch in the chops from a stroppy Islay middleweight. Flavour-packed yet delicate.

    Tasting Notes By Michael Jackson
    Nose: Tar-covered rope.
    Palate: Tar-like. Medicinal. Seaweedy. Salty. Behind all of those dry flavours, a background of light, clean, fresh, maltiness and lemon skin fruitiness.
    Finish: Sandy, peppery.
    Comment: Not from a particularly peaty period, but packed with Ardbeg’s other flavours. Wonderfully distinctive.
