Ardbeg Distillery Single Malt Scotch Whisky 10 year old
|Category||Single Malt Scotch|
|Region||United Kingdom, Scotland, Islay|
Jim Murray's 2008 World Whisky of the Year! When Ardbeg 10 was released it was the first expression from the distillery not to be chill-filtered. It's a true classic from Islay, and a must have for any fan of single malt whisky.
Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Ma
Classic 'southern shores' Islay from the onset: salty and medicinal on the nose, with smoked haddock, citrus fruits, and milk chocolate. The palate yields full-on hot peat, pipe tobacco, black coffee, licorice, and more chocolate. The finish is long and malty, with sweet smoke. Non-chill filtered.
This Islay single malt has a straw hue and saline, seaweed and peat aromas underpinned by light vanilla and coconut. The palate is distinctly smoky, and has a mouthwatering saline quality, with a pepper and jalapeño finish. Faint vanilla and pineapple notes play underneath. Keep a light hand on the water, this washes out easily.
