Ardbeg 10 Year Old Bottling Note

A phenomenal whisky packing powerful peaty deliciousness, Ardbeg 10 Year Old is a favourite of many whisky lovers around the world. Produced on the Kildalton Coast of Islay, this single malt matures for a decade before being bottled without any chill-filtration. If you're after a whisky with full of coastal air, smoke and more, this is exactly what you want.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: A ridge of vanilla leads to mountain of peat capped with citrus fruits and circled by clouds of sea spray.

Palate: Sweet vanilla counterbalanced with lemon and lime followed by that surging Ardbeg smoke that we all know and love.

Finish: Long and glorious; sea salted caramel and beach bonfire smoke.

Overall: Precise balance, big smoke and non-chill filtered. This is why this is such a famous dram

Ardbeg 10 Year Old Reviews

Still mourning their change of recipe

About 10 years ago, the first of the new 10yo came out, and I was bereft. Their was a hole where my heart used to be, as they'd killed my favourite whisky by taming it.
Whatever this is, it's not Ardbeg, but a sanitised facsimile. To taste Ardbeg as it was, you'll need to buy Uigeadail (which is amazing).
I'm sure objectively, this is nice, but all I can taste is loss, regret and pain.

Big peat and smoke a must for me

Current favourite

Fairly recent scotch drinker and even more recently moved into the peated whiskys. Ardbeg 10 was my first Islay scotch. Was a bit uncertain after the first dram (quite the shock to the taste buds!), but has this ever grown on me! Now about 2/3 through the bottle, and I actually crave the smell and taste. Do they add something addictive? Have recenty done direct comparison with Laphroaig 10 and Lagavulin 8, and can say that Arbeg is my clear favourite. Love the strong and clean smokey and earthy flavours. Unfortunately it's over $100 a bottle here in western Canada (40% higher than Laph 10), so sadly may not become my daily sipper.

Mouthwatering

A delicious drop from Islay. Surf and turf served up by the sea. Delicious BBQ notes with sweet citrus in the back. Yes please!

'Campfire in your mouth' heaven!

I'm just sipping this for the first time after being a huge Talisker 10 & Laphroaig 10 lover.

I am literally in love with this. My go to bottle has always been my Talisker, the Laphroaig is gorgeous but not quite powerful enough for me ... but now this!

The nose is a gorgeous blend of medicinal smoke, when vanilla and moorland comes through. Then the taste ... smoke, fire, bitter, sweet? Pepper, sea salt but the best is yet to come the finish is so long! First heat and pepper but then that wild grass and fells again!

Damn it! I will now have to permanently have a bottle of this keeping my Talisker 10 company.

If you like peaty, smoke but with much more Complexity to enjoy ... go ... but this bottle!

Superb!!

Having been essentially a supermarket whisky drinker until now, this is a different class! Wow - I can’t look back in anger...at least not today. Ok, I’m not a connoisseur but this is the best whisky I’ve ever tasted. For me this has sublime smokiness, subtle sweetness and soupçon of saltiness! Seriously it’s superb!! Xx

Sublime, almost heavenly.

An absolute favorite of mine - citrusy and smoky, Ardbeg's flagship bottle, the Ten delivers a near-perfect dram every pour. Obviously, highly recommend.

Love it

But you have to like smoke! If pushed I will buy Corryvreckan. I like that one best. Ardbeg 10 is outstanding if you're in the mood for smoke!

Fantastic

Fantastic slow drinker with beautiful smoky aroma and peat taste. By far one of the finest I've had recently.

Stunning

I am a huge fan of Islay whiskies, the Laphroaig 10 yr old cask strength being one of my favourites, and this one doesn't disappoint. Massive peatiness as expected, with what I can only describe as a slightly medicinal aftertaste which I adore. Stunning!
