Nose: A dense layer of peat, burned wood, car tires and menthol. In addition to these, lemon and caramel that make itself felt behind.
Palate: Dense peat and burnt oak on the palate in the same way as the nose. We can say that Ardbeg 10 is a whiskey that is chewed, not drunk. It almost covers the entire palate with its full and creamy texture.
Vanilla, coffee (I might even say Sumatran, one of my favorite coffee beans) and a little bit of fruity notes. In addition to these, it is possible to get bitter sweetness and slightly salty flavors of dark chocolate. A very complex but equally balanced palate.
Finish: A long oily finish. Peat, leather, anise, vanilla and black pepper.
Overall: I can say that Ardbeg 10 is one of the whiskeys that best reflects the Islay character. With its complex, dense and balanced structure, the Ardbeg 10 is a dignified classic.
