Ardbeg Scotch Single Malt 10 Year 750ml
2021 San Francisco World Spirits Competition Double Gold Medal WinnerArdbeg Ten Years Old is revered around the world as the peatiest, smokiest, most complex single malt of them all. Yet it does not flaunt the peat; rather it gives way to the natural sweetness of the malt to produce a whisky of perfect balance. Named World Whisky of the Year in 2008.
Professional ReviewWhisky Advocate: 92 Points
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.Wine Enthusiast: 90 Points
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.
