Ardbeg Ten Years Old is revered around the world as the peatiest, smokiest, a most complex single malt of them all, it has been named World Whisky of the Year in 2008.
Gold coloured, this whisky presents intense smoky fruit aromas infused with zesty lemon and lime, wrapped in waxy dark chocolate. Bold menthol and black pepper slice through the sweet smoke followed by tarry ropes and graphite. Savour the aroma of smoked fish and crispy bacon alongside green bell peppers, baked pineapple and pear juice. The finish is long and smoky with tarry espresso, aniseed, toasted almonds and a hint of soft barley and fresh pear.
