    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 smoky peat that explodes on your nose, pure peat with very few nuances, but very round. By insisting all the complexity is revealed, we feel the oil, salt, wet grass, earth, spices, caramel, blood oranges, and a hint of ginger. All in perfect balance. Alcohol plays elbow and shuffles the cards, it tricks our senses, it is not an easy drink, it is a furious and excited horse. The rodeo continues on the palate, with all the pepper and spices pouring into it, it is earthy, well salted, slightly caramelized, intense, with a hint of citrus on the finish, perhaps clementine. What an explosion when swallowing! We are like immersed in the earth, caramel and citrus come out. It is very long and oily on the palate, the malt clings to the palate and leaves like smoke echoes. We come out as struck.

      oh the peat, it's everywhere. Some saltyness, oceanlike, the sea, wet rocks
    • Taste

      surprisingly citric, followed by salt,
      oyster, and a big punch of peat
    • Finish

      Medicinal, oily, very long, ongoing smoke and peatyness. Very long finish.

    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.
