Description

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 which retains maximum flavour and gives more body and added depth. This core expression was launched in 2000.

Tasting Notes

Nose: A ridge of vanilla leads to a mountain of peat capped with fresh citrus fruits and then rounded off with the aroma of sea spray.
Palate: Sweet vanilla is counterbalanced with citrus, lemon and lime followed by the surging Ardbeg smoke that we have all come to know and love.
Finish: Long and stunning; sea salted caramel and beach bonfire smoke complete the glorious finish.
Overall: A precise balance with big smoke and non-chill filtered which is what makes this such a famous dram.

Taste Test

More complex, citrus-led and sophisticated than recent bottlings, though the peat is no less but now simply displayed in an even greater elegance; a beautiful sea salt strain to this; gentle oils carry on them a lemon-lime edge, sweetened by barley and a weak solution of golden syrup; the peat is omnipotent, turning up in every crevice and wave, yet never one once overstepping it boundary; stunningly clean, the oak offers not a bitter trace but rather a vanilla and butterscotch edge to the barley. Again the smoke wafts around in a manner unique in the world of whisky when it comes to sheer elan and adroitness; like when you usually come across something that goes down to beautifully and with such a nimble touch and disarming allure, just close your eyes and enjoy....46%
