    Great art by Ardbeg, I like by far better than the equivalent age of Laphroaig
    • Nose
      subtle sweetness (rumrosines) right at the beginning. Dry pine forest, resin and smoldering hay add an aromatic herbaceous touch to it. Spicy garden herbs (eg fresh oregano), limes and fleur de sel make you think of a summer barbecue. The smoke is only minimally noticeable and lies like a warm ash carpet under everything. Warm wood, vanilla and dry apricots become stronger, the longer the whisky stands
    • Taste
      extremely oily and mild. The wild and stormy TEN has become an elegant whisky with tightly woven components. Grilled lemons and limes, tingling white wine with a mineral-chalky note. Delicate flower tones and bitter herbs, before a clearer (though still subtle) carpet of warm ash lays on the tongue and lingers there
    • Finish
      Dry, warm finish, extremely long. Minimal herb, not bitter

    One of the best Ardbegs I tasted
    • Nose
      98 98
      Like perfume. Slight sweetness, peachy, honey, wildflowers
    • Taste
      92 92
      Sweet but not too sweet. Sweet wood, raw, earthy but balanced
    • Finish
      96 96
      Minimal dry. Generally warm, stable for minutes with only minimal fade
