Ardbeg Ten in bottle

Oh my…this light gold colored spirit has so much going on with it, I can hardly decide what to say. It’s a staple in my cuppboard.


Once you nose beyond the peat, you’ll find sweet peppers, citrus peel, dark chocolate, and something salty and savory.


Smoke, Citrus, Anise seed, Tires?, Medicinal


Get used to it!

Ardbeg is said to be the the peatiest, smokiest, most complex single malt there is. I would tend to agree, and go on to say that the bottlings that I’ve had, have always been non-chill filtered, and bottled at a reasonable strength, all at a good price point. If you haven’t had the standard Ardbeg expression (the TEN), grab a bottle and spend some time with it!
