Ardbeg Ten Years Old is a very special bottling for the Ardbeg distillery as it is the first non-chill filtered whisky in the Ardbeg range. Chill filtering isn't a bad thing, in fact it created real consistency of product when the whisky industry was a little more 'hap-hazard' than it is today. Ardbeg Ten Years Old is whisky with none of the goodness taken out and as good as straight from the cask.

Who would believe that back in 1981, the distillery fell silent and was mothballed? Fortunately in 1997, to the delight of fans all over the world Glenmorangie plc rescued Ardbeg and a team of dedicated souls set about repairing and reviving the distillery (not to mention repainting it!). Now, once again Ardbeg flows freely.

I first bought this for a mate of mine as a gift duty free airport. He commented on how good it was and initially I didn't believe him. I am a cider lover usually and drinking whiskey normally makes me cringe. I tried it and loved it straight! Found it again on so I ordered some for me and my mate. 10/10.

This has to be my absolute favourite. If you like dry smoky scotch, it doesn't get better than this. you can smell the peat a mile away and the palate is rather smooth, though it could be smoother for a more expensive scotch. I can't have anything else after this. I tried the Ardbeg Uigedail after this (my wife bought it at duty free by accident) which turned out to be less smoky and sweeter. If you've had Talisker, Green label, etc. and are looking for a robust scotch with the right peaty aroma, this is the one.
