    When I breathe a glass of Ardbeg Ten, I always feel like I am getting a little punch in the face. Yes, it's violent, it's well smoked peat that explodes on the nose, pure peat with very few nuances, but very round. By insisting, all the complexity is revealed, we smell oil, salt, wet grass, earth, spices, caramel, blood oranges, and a hint of ginger. All in a perfect balance. Alcohol elbows and muddies the waters, it abuses 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 in, it's earthy, well salty, slightly caramelized, intense, with a hint of citrus on the finish, maybe clementine. What an explosion when it comes to swallowing! It is as if immersed in the earth, the caramel and citrus fruits stand out. It is very long and oily in the mouth, the malt clings to the palate and leaves echoes of smoke. We come out stunned.

    Soldier dram, I think you don't have to write a lot for a 10er ardbeg, also great for making BBQ sauce ????

      oh the peat, it's everywhere. Some saltyness, oceanlike, the sea, wet rocks
    • Taste
      83 83
      surprisingly citric, followed by salt,
      oyster, and a big punch of peat
    • Finish
      85 85
      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.
