Whisky Reviews for Ardbeg Ten

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.27 points

  1. detachedblue scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Fruity and crispy peat, carbolic and medicinal, some farmy touches, a lot of lemons, some young spirit characters.
    • Taste
      Mellow and sweet, then becoming big and spicey, oak spices, cinnamon, medicinal peat, asphalt and disinfection spray, finished by a lot of fresh cut mint, a touch of banana and tropical fruits, and some lemons.
    • Finish
      Unripe banana, bonfire smoke, coke fire, still very medicinal.

  2. Kaleva scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Good whisky, one of the Islay classics. When you adapted to smoke, you can feel typical Ardbeg's sweetness and nutty notes. There's no complexity in this whisky but it's rather good all-rounder.
    • Nose
      Smoke, rubber, tar, vanilla,orange, butterscotch when adding water
    • Taste
      Sweet, spicy, smoky
    • Finish
      Long, smoky, nuts, iodine

  3. Bosi scored this whisky 86 points Specialist

    The Ardbeg Ten is a perfect Islay malt, smoky and complex. Price / performance moderate hard to beat.
    • Nose
      Of course, the peat note is in the foreground. Behind, however, traces of orange, caramel and a touch of salt are to be found.
    • Taste
      Behind the campfire-like smoke you can taste dates, dark chocolate and burnt toast.
    • Finish
      Very long and warm. The complexity lingers in the mouth for a long time.
