Whisky Reviews for Ardbeg Ten

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.13 points

  1. Donwaldorf scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Besides the reduction, this Ardbeg ten is really nice. It's a pleasant surprise.
    • Nose
      It is slightly alcoholic, on a mineral peat and especially very saline.
      There is smoked fish and peat oil.
    • Taste
      It's light, it's reduced ... too much? We have leather and peat "dirty" with this side saddle horse.
      There are some nice spices.
    • Finish
      Average final. There is clearly more than peat oil and cocoa.

  5. VaryingViewpoint scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Would be very good if not for the bitterness on the palate and finish, as that really pulls this down.

    I would rather drink a Big Peat than this!

    • Taste

      Drying and bitterness

    Nose: salty, smoky

    Taste: nice and salty, with herbs and licorice in the background.

    Finish: short, salty, a hint of leather, occasionally salmiak, raspberry and some smoke.

    Price - performance ok for me
