    When I breathe a glass of Ardbeg Ten, I always feel like I'm punching myself in the face. 54 ppm. Yes, it's violent, it's well smoked peat that comes to explode in your nose, pure peat with very little nuances, but very round. By emphasizing all the complexity is revealed, you can smell oil, salt, wet grass, earth, spices, caramel, blood oranges, and a hint of ginger. All in perfect balance. Alcohol elbows and blurs the cards, it hurts our senses, it's not an easy drink, it's a furious and packed horse. The rodeo continues in the mouth, with all the pepper and spices that flow, it is earthy, salty, slightly caramelized, intense, with a touch of citrus in the final, perhaps clementine. What an explosion when swallowing! One is as if immersed in the earth, the caramel and the citrus fruits stand out. It is long and oily in the mouth, the malt clings to the palate and leaves like echoes of smoke. We come out as sounded.

    Nose: Citrus dominates the nose. Someone said grill limes, and I would agree with that. A bit of rubber. the smoke on the nose comes across more herbal or medicinal than smoke and ash. Some mezcal as well. 

    Palate: a bit thin. Spirit driven perhaps. But really good. Citrus into ashy smoke 

    Finish: the medicinal notes fade into tarry smoke, which I love. Citrus and sweetness linger with the smoke. 

    Summary: A benchmark whisky, no doubt. I am always happy to recommend this to someone who likes peat.
