Ardbeg 10 Year Old
Part of a short series on Ardbeg whiskies
Ok so first up is the Ardbeg 10 Year Old, shockingly although i drink a fair amount of this dram i only realised very recently that i was yet to review it for the website, that disgusting behaviour is sorted today as I add in this as the first of three cracker Ardbeg drams. No matter how many other Ardbeg's i try I still absolutely love this one.
Ardbeg 10 really is a peat monster, the first thing that hits is a really earthy smoky peat note that then moves to a strong woody charcoal BBQ ribs before going to a sweeter side with fresh galia melon and a touch of sweet royal gala apples.
more earthy notes, touches of fresh grass and royal gala apples with a hint of toffee and chewing tobacco and freshly crushed ground coffee
it just grows and grows, what a dram.
