Whisky Reviews for Ardbeg Ten

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.50 points

  1. hs305 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    [November, 2002]  I had this dram during an Ardbeg rarities tasting in Bonn.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored this 87,5.  My notes state a pale blonde colour and big legs as well as big tears (oily texture at the glass).  The nose offers just minor peaty notes but surprisingly banana and lemon aromas and some vanilla.  The mouthfeel is pleasant and tongue-coating.  The taste again shows just minor peaty flavours (for an Ardbeg).  The finish is well-balanced and of medium length.  A delicious dram...

    Color: white wine
    Nose: lemons and limes, provided with maritime flavors. In addition peaty malt, cereals and hints of vanilla and a handful of honey. In the background discreetly some leather (football).
    Taste: Sweet, creamy lemon with lots of honey, peat, smoky malt, green apple, hops, anchovies and a celery note. Cayenne pepper and white peppercorns whirl up the mouthfeel before hints of dry herbs herald the departure.
    Finish: Medium long - with lots of peppery spiciness, lemon extract, leather, very soft wood and a concentrated load of peat.
    Comment: Great, fat taste!
    88 points (nose: 87 / taste: 89 / finish: 87)
