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

A great staple for your whisky collection

In the everyday drinking collection this is a goodie. Lovely peaty smoke with peppery sweetness. Great autumnal dram.

Do not recommend

Tastes and smells like burning tyres. Besides this disaster of a flavor, goes down well and feels very smooth.

Great dram, smoke bomb, my favorite islay 10 yr old single malt

Smoke bomb, but a great dram! This is my favorite 10 year old from Islay. Nice campfire smoke, low peat medicinal note, which I prefer, and a subtle layer of vanilla, malt, and a bit of tropical pineapple, that I think for me is the same note as the lemon/lime/citrus that so many find hidden under the blanket of smoke. Great lingering finish. For the price, this is my go to smoky 10 year old single malt.

My favourite single malt

A great combination of peat and sweetness. If I could, I would buy a bottle of this every week. At 46% its got a real kick to it, but has a ton of flavour.

Solid, recommend for those getting into Islay

My first Islay after spending a year enjoying Speyside and Highlands scotches. This was a great dram. Better than Highland Park 12 or Johnnie Walker Black or Double black in my opinion. Paid $60 in NC for it, would be a better value at $50, but I do want to try other Ardbegs now. Recommend it to those just getting into Islay single malts.

Disappointing: paid £37 and came into this one with a lot of hype around it but it failed to deliver for me. It’s got the smoke and the coastal air, and a citrus note which continues into the finish. There’s a bacon or cooked ham note there for me too, barbecuing meat. But personally I much prefer Laphroaig 10.

It is a must-have if you like smoky scotches.

Yes Please

Delcious Islay gem. Hidden behind the smoke and bandaid notes is a blast of citrus and a wee hint of banana peel. Not for the faint of heart. Drink with the Vikings !!!

The stories of sea, old books and home

Ardbeg Ten
As you open this bottle for the first time - you conjure up thoughts of that hallowed peaty profile.
You pour a little after a nice pop, and draw yourself to the top of the glen, trying to take in the first whiff…
Boom - you are standing near a salty water body, maybe an ocean whipping against large and small black rocks, but it’s night and you can’t see very far in the ocean. There’s a small fire behind you. Meat and a few more essential fats (largely exaggerated stories told by the pack of pals you willingly don’t let go and some bacon) are being slowly turned over these flames and you can smell the promise of smoky, succulent and almost sweet deliciousness. The air is kind of rare, neutral and though the night is not cold, the fire gives out a familiar warmth. You go in again, bringing it up for another whiff and a taste. The earthiness pops up and makes you feel the peated edges beneath your feet and then it carries you to another zone.
The room now is a old regal leather & wood covered library, the high back chesterfield is overused and more beautiful than before - the leather bound books have been resting well, but the oiliness creeps in through your nostrils and reaches your taste buds.
It’s sharp and you feel like you bit into something unique. It’s fresh with its crispness, yet familiar with its varnish like feel. The wooden racks on the wall are now smiling back at you - hinting at how they blended the leather wraps of the book with their faded inner oak.
You take in a little more - excited for it unravel new chapters.
It stops, where did it go, I can’t feel it behind my throat, just the hum of milk soaked cereal after it’s gone.
The nose plunges again… the smoky meaty umami is still there and it’s promising a more delicate and warm note ahead.. what could it be?
A little liquorice? A whole lot of warming spices? Maybe. But it’s also that kind of deep clove infused aqua that I have sometimes. It’s sweet and warm at the same time.
It’s wonderful, how I have been traversing expansive spots just to land in my easychair with this smoke laden, sweet, oaky and warm clove steeped liquid in hand… a journey indeed!
As this opens up more within that air in my house, it introduces itself as a light pale coloured friend who has many more stories to tell as we go deeper into conversations. But for the moment, it urges me to fill my glass again for a few more escapades…

Of the big three. I think this may be my favourite. Lagavulin is fab of course, but a bit of a show-off. Laphroaig is too hospitally, but this is the perfect compromise. Very nice. Less blood and guts, and less blood and guts. Perfect.
