Ardbeg 10 Year Old



This exuberant youngster shows great depth and provides an excellent introduction to the "Islay character".  Nestled in a rock covered cove on the southern most tip of the island, this distillery now thrives under its 1997 ownership by Glenmorangie plc.

Color:  Pale Yellow

Nose:  Phenol, toffee, subtle smoke, peat and very slight lemony sweetness.

Body:  Full bodied and very complex for its age.

Palate:  Dry and fresh with a slight reprise of citrus, then smoke and coffee notes emerge.  Heavily peated malt is evident fading to a malty sweetness.

Finish:  Peppery tail balanced with subtle sweetness.  Smoke and peat stay on mouth through long tangy finish.

ABV: 46%

Awards: SFWSC 2010 Gold Medal, Jim Murray's Bible - Whisky of the Year 2008, SFWSC Double Gold 2008

Chuao - Le Citron, Cinco de Mayo& Gran Cacao

The citrusy freshness of Le Citron and Cinco de Mayo are perfect flavor mates for this malt.  The bittersweet dark chocolate of the Gran Cacao offers a beautifully contrasting alternative.  Too many choices too little time. 


Partagas No. 8 Maduro

The Ardbeg 10 is a classic heavily peated Islay malt that just begs for a dark maduro cigar, and this combination produces a rich, rewarding experience.
