brushing of your teeth!

- Huge good. Bottle purchased from Copenhagen Airport 3/2013, tasted in 2013-2015?
Much smoke and peat, lime, a little vanilla, sea air
Add smoke and peat, in addition to the hints of sweet lime, white pepper
Long aftertaste, peat, salt, smoke, but also malt and hint of wood
- The ardbeg ten is one of the best in all the ardbeg line. Very tasty and complex. An amazing whisky!!
A burst of peat infused with zesty lime wrapped in dark chocolate. Bold menthol slides through tarry ropes. Savour smoked fish, crispy bacon, green bell peppers and pear juice. With water opens more seaside smell
Crackling peat, black pepper and sizzling cinnamon-spiced toffee. A wave of brine infused with buttermilk and currants. Smoke wells up bringing toasted marshmallows while espresso and tarry smoke develops.
Long and smokey with aniseed, toasted almonds, soft barley and fresh peat.
Intense smoky, fruity aromas with a clear presence of barley, lemon, lime and dark chocolate which overflow into scents of smoked fish, crispy bacon with baked pineapple and pear juice. Complex but beautifully balanced
A taste explosion of barley and malt with lime and lemon in the lead role that complemented by including cinnamon, banana and blueberries. Subtle transition to a more warm and smoky taste of roasted marshmallows, licorice and tar. Truly a delight for the senses.
Very long and smoky aftertaste of tar, anise, toasted almonds and hints of soft barley and toffee
- A bit more "ashy" than the previous batch.
I am more into the Laphroaig CS batches - more flavour and more powerful imo, but the Ardbeg is still a good everyday dram
