  1. Love street scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    This is a strange one, compared to the consistency of the beautifully engineered tens of today, I think we are dealing with a slightly different creature. Initially I was slightly disappointed however with a little time things improved. No longer did I crave that slightly sharp bourbon edge, the creamier arrival and development was just as good. Do I mean good or different, don’t know, ask me in a couple of months. Anyway I salute the whisky engineers of Ardbeg or do I mean LVMH you are masters of your craft. 2009 or 2019 this is fantastic ten year old

    Ardbeg 10y, 46%, OB 2009
    Nose on peat, some fruit (grape juice, pears) and medicinal tests. A bit of salt also. Pepper. Earth. Asparagus??? Mmm, not bad but not very complex. The fruit that I had disappears quite quickly. The peat, the medicinal and the earth remain. The peat also dominates the sole, which is accompanied by some sweet (vanilla) and a little bit of fruit (citrus). Some herbs to the end. Pretty assig on the duration. Roughly rough. Long, smoky aftertaste with some citrus here too. Not bad, not great, a bit better than the previous batches that I tasted. 83/100 http://onversneden.com/2010/10/21/twee-ileach/
