  1. GJR scored this whisky 77 points Expert Senior

    No high flyer, the "normal" Ten is better balanced. It's OK, but no more than that. Boring whisky.
    • Nose
      Little careful, is this the Ardbeg Ten? Close to the distillery character. Smoky and peaty. Earth tones and slightly iodine.
    • Taste
      Here too, just right for its turnip, simple peat and earth tones. Just enjoyable drinkable, but also rather boring.
    • Finish
      Pretty short, peat smoke with some bitter tones.

  5. Albaron scored this whisky 88 points Specialist

    Very reserved and elegant, but still offers a lot of flavors and is a lot of fun. Has so many unusual flavors in it, which are also very interesting in the combination. For me the best special bottling of the last years and offers a counterpoint to the normal range. Would be great if it were the more common, I would also buy quite well.
    • Nose
      Mild, cereals, light smoke, margarine, some honey and vanilla, light citrus and minty notes
    • Taste
      Smoke, a little vanilla, slightly bitter, lots of ash, some cereals, some lime, very fresh
    • Finish
      the smoke is gone quickly, ashes, slightly bitter, but only traces of oak, overall quite short. At the very end, the oak gets stronger.

    Beautiful Ardbeg for the 200th distillery birthday. Not the big hit, but the special kick is missing. But the distillery character is fully there, and the then issue price (70 GBP?) Is absolutely fine.
    • Nose
      At first restrained in the nose, lurking. Acts teen. Lemon smoke, slightly sour. Vanilla works its way forward and mixes with the lemon, intensifying it. Also, the smoke component is now stronger and ashen.
    • Taste
      On the tongue now heavy smoke with cold-cigarette-in-ashtray feeling. Beautiful lemon note, which now, even if one sniffs again in between, has become much more intense in the nose. Lots of salt and dried algae, machine oil and boiling tar. Permanently ashen and dry, puts furry on the tongue.
    • Finish
      Medium long, still with strong smoke, ashen and lemony, some milk chocolate.

    wonderful…expensive…but still wonderful
    • Nose
      dark fruits, salty sea, smoke, farmy, butter, grass, rich honey, malt, grains
    • Taste
      richly sweet, smoky, wonderful spiciness, chocolate cake, salted nuts, unflavored seaweed, coffee and cream
    • Finish
      long, fruity, dry, citrus, intense spicy smoke, brine, grass, minerals and grains at the back followed by nutty sweet bitterness and long briny coastal breeze

    N: Buttery, salted sweet [sandwich] pickle, pomegranate syrup, some farm notes - its all here.
    T: A combo of youth & age, rather unlike the standard release. US oak provides the platform for a sweet-fresh herbal allium profile - presented overall with a soft touch.
    F: Sweet raisins & splintered vanilla - again displaying a considered balance of youth & age.
    C: Nice enough, the age combo working rather well. Scores 86 which [pleasingly] i see now is the same score I gave it last time.Scores a B[-]
