Ardbeg TEN (bottled 2014), 46%

Review #589
This 10 year old is one of the classic entry level whiskies out there. Great price and it has won several awards over the years. Peat, smoked ham and bacon in the smell. Grass and hay. Light white fruits lies beneath the heavy peat and give it some depth.

Fresh grass and hay mixes in the taste with loads of peat alongside. The vanilla is coming forward in the finish. Some exotic fruits is hiding in there as well. Like coconut and pineapple. Just a hint though.

This is just a fantastic standard bottle! Maybe the best out there? Definitely in the scope for best value for money! Good all around. Perfect for a cold day or for a day with a cold. I will give this 88/100 (22/22/22/22).
