  1. GJR scored this whisky 77 points Connoisseur

    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.

    it was announced to us new ∞ old
    we take a lot of time and openness to allow ourselves to
    yes it is new with old, very nice
    the perpetual can really inspire
    200 years Ardbeg ... Congratulation Ardbeg, well done
    yes! I'm in a new Ardbeg heaven
    • Nose
      very young Ardbeg with roasted barley stings in the nose
      There's a flashback to the young new Bruichladdichs
      if he stands longer
      comes warm sunny caramel, with fresh lime
      cooled wood ash
      and that is wow
      dusty barley sweets
      ripe cornfields after the midday heat
      a lazy afternoon wind
      the ears rustle
      the ripe warm barley dusting and flickering in the deep sunlight
      sweet and dusty
      the hot midday sun is still in them and you smell that

      over and over again caramel and fresh lemon
      it's a new style with old elements
      Congratulation Ardbeg
    • Taste
      in the beginning again this young feeling
      Some light soft chocolate on the tongue
      Lemon fresh, sweet caramel
      the dust from the warm barley field
      Maturity and cask then develop in the mouth
      yes Steve you are right;)
      on the palate remains a lot of barrel chocolate
      some malt in the throat
      sweet barley on the tongue
      warm smoking in the throat
      sweet wood ash smokes from your interior >>>
    • Finish
      very long

      barrel flavors
      the sweet barley
      the juice from a hot baked apple
      Your taste buds are chocolate
      it lasts forever long and beautiful> sweet wood ash and barrel flavors

    Very harmonious, perfectly flawless, clear structure, medium complexity. I like it very much.
    • Nose
      91P: smoke, ash, citric, somewhat meaty, fine iodine, maritime. Everything is nicely balanced with a good intensity.
    • Taste
      91P: citrus, tar, fine ash, vanilla, oak. Balanced, good aroma pressure, creamy texture, vanilla sweetness, good body, pronounced intensity.
    • Finish
      91P: smoky, citric, meaty, vanilla, oak. Long finish, very pleasant finish.

  6. Robinzon25 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Easy, "sour" malt. Not a masterpiece.
    • Nose
      The first nose is Duchess candy, herbal notes. Deeper traditional shades of the distillery (smoke, sleepers, creosote).
    • Taste
      Soft, oily. Spicy spices, smoked fish, salt, citrus fruits and pears.
    • Finish
      Long enough, smoked, pepper, brackish, with hints of mackerel and rye bread. At the end, the tones of oak, honey and spicy spices remain in the mouth for a long time.

  10. 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.
