DescriptionThe Flagship of the range and the essence of Ardbeg's house style an Islay whisky of exceptional balance and depth of flavour. Revered around the world as the peatiest, smokiest, most complex single malt in existence. 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. Ardbeg Ten Years Old, 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. A renowned whisky with none of the goodness taken out.
Tasting NotesAn explosion of crackling peat sets off millions of flavour explosions: peat effervesces with tangy lemon and lime juice, black pepper pops with sizzling cinnamon-spiced toffee. Then comes a wave of brine infused with smooth buttermilk, ripe bananas and currants. Smoke gradually wells up on the palate bringing a mouthful of warm creamy cappuccino and toasted marshmallows. As the taste lengthens and deepens, dry espresso, liquorice root and tarry smoke develop coating the palate with chewy peat oils. The mouthfeel is firstly lightly spiced, then chewing, mouthwatering and full, finally drying.
