  1. dewo scored this whisky 84 points Member Senior

    Ardbeg officially became a whisky distiller in 1815.
    In the years up to 1981, the still was sold a few times, but then shut down.
    From 1987 Ardbeg started producing for the blend industry again and was taken over by Glenmorengie in 1997.
    From 2000, the TEN was offered as a portfolio product and was constantly sold.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Clear smoke note with a fresh spearmint and distinctive citrus notes.
      In addition to the dominant smoke, the nose must first classify and filter things.
      46% can be smelled, but not too much to need water.
      Wood tannins arrive with a sweet dryness on the nose.
      Not a mallet from Rauch that overwhelms you, but only demands.
    • Taste
      82 82
      First of all, the honey sweetness gets on the tongue and does not become dominant on the palate with its smoke.
      Seasoning is added and is slowly becoming medical.
      Only when you draw in air does the smoke develop really violently and take you into the saltiness of the sea foam and the algae and the campfire on the south coast of Islay.
    • Finish
      85 85
      The smoke quickly settles on the palate and only leaves room for other flavors at the tip of the tongue, such as light sweetness, but at the same time saltiness with the wood flavor.
      The campfire smoke remains pleasantly long with a slight note of iodine on the palate.
      If you enjoy several drams, you will still have fun the next day.
      Brushing your teeth doesn't help either.
