Ardbeg Scotch-10 Year 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Colour: Light gold. Aroma: A burst of intense smoky fruit escapes into the atmosphere – peat 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. As you dip your nose in further, savour the aroma of smoked fish and crispy bacon alongside green bell peppers, baked pineapple and pear juice. Add water and breathe in the vortex of aromas rising from the glass. An oceanic minerality brings a breath of cool, briny seaspray on chalky cliffs. Waxed lemon and lime follows with coal tar soap, beeswax and herby pine woodlands. Toasted vanilla and sizzling cinnamon simmer in the background with warm hazelnut and almond toffee. Taste: An explosion of crackling peat sets off millions of flavour explosions on the tongue: peat effervesces with tangy lemon and lime juice, black pepper pops with sizzling cinnamon-spiced toffee. This is followed by a wave of brine infused with smooth buttermilk, ripe bananas and currants. Smoke gradually wells up on the palate bringing a mouthful of warm creamy cappuccino and toasted marshmallows. As the taste lengthens and deepens, dry espresso, liquorice root and tarry smoke develop coating the palate with chewy peat oils. Finish: The finish goes on and on – long and smoky with tarry espresso, aniseed, toasted almonds and traces of soft barley and fresh pear.

    \ Straw-gold color. On the nose, sweet toffee, citrus notes, seaweed, and spice complement a powerful peat smoke infusion. In body, it is thick and oily. On the palate, a somewhat sweet maltiness up front is run over by a powerful peat smoke locomotive. Again, the whisky is enriched with citrus and pear notes, spice, and seaweed. The finish is powerful, long, and warming. The smoke lingers for minutes, if not hours.\

    Ardbeg 10 Year Old from Islay, Scotland. Ardbeg was founded in 1815 by John Macdougall, the favorite landing of the 18th century smugglers. It is a windy, secluded cove on the southeast coast of Islay, accessible via a narrow road as it were, in the be

    \ Vivid straw yellow. The opening nose gives a jolt of what makes Ardbeg a cult malt: mesmerizing peatiness that\'s borderline medicine chest and fresh cigar ash. On subsequent sniffings the intense peatiness settles down into an ashy-sooty but mellow and composed bouquet. First taste is dry and concentrated; the midpalate turns surprisingly sweet, oily and only moderately peaty-smoky. The finish is long, embers-warm, ashy and a bit unruly. Though ardent fans might think this Ardbeg was neutered in production, it\'s by far the most drinkable offering I\'ve evaluated.\
