    Not quite the same anymore, but still a great change between sweetness and smoke!

    Smell: The presence of minerals seems to condense the pictures of charcoal and kerosene in my mind into solids, turning them into grills and chimneys. After sobering for a while, the aroma quickly balances out, and the tomato flavor is clearly captured. The taste of snacks such as potato chips, fried rice crackers and sesame seaweed is greatly enhanced.

    Drinking: The wine body is soft and energetic. The alcohol content of 46% and the surging charcoal smoke are enough to make the mouth hot and hot. After swallowing, I feel that my breath is spraying smoke. At the same time, the taste buds of the tongue smell of fresh pineapple. , Continuous

    Feeling: 46% alcohol content in bottling, the lowest limit of non-condensing filtration, although it is not marked with Natural Colour, its body color is very light, these seemingly simple behaviors represent Aedbeg's obsession, even a bottle of winery The entry-level ten-year wines are still bottled with high-quality standards. I really admire Dr. Liang Sidun’s spirit. In addition, Dr. Liang Sidun’s leading barrel management technology has also been bottled in this bottle of Aedbeg for 10 years. The charcoal smoke, which is the spirit of the winery, is clear and rich, and the balance with the barrel flavor is extremely high. Only in the middle and late stages can we capture the interesting taste of so many crispy snacks. The taste is just right on the comfort line. As a starter wine, this is really perfect

    (This is an old note in my notebook, using the old scoring system. Although this will result in a high score, I still want to show this score.)

    Room temperature when drinking: 15 ℃

    Viewing Eyes: White Wine

    Smell Nose: Fried smoked bacon with a little oil, disinfection water, alkali, calm sea water. Then came the freshness and bitterness of honey, sea salt cheese, oak, mint leaves, and lemon peel. The whole process is filled with a delicious sense of fat, which is an important additional item. The fragrance is elegant and delicate, and there is no obvious sweetness.

    Taste Palate: sweet and sour lemonade with lime and ashes. The seaside wet rocks, moss, seaweed, fish mouth, oysters, shellfish salty, fresh, sweet, cool summer sea water.

    Finishing Finish: Extra long, smoked, limestone, sanitized, then converted to smoked salmon, a little leather, and finally the freshness of the seafood.

    Body: Medium, with a bitter bottom, rounded, with a certain thickness, strong and strong skeleton, no irritation. The body of Ardbeg10 is more stretched than that of Okuno Cape, but it is not scattered and still has a certain degree of tightness.

    Nose: 91/100

    Palate: 88/100

    Finish: 88/100

    Body: 90/100

    Overall: 89.5 / 100

    Overall: Ardbeg 10 is like a melodious piece of music, smells incredibly comfortable, surprisingly good balance when drinking, the only drawback is a bit salty (personal taste). Reminiscent of a sunny afternoon, the calm sea shimmered.
