Smoked cheesecake?

Ardbeg TEN 10yo (46%, OB, 2011)


Nose: Peat and smoke lead to a cheesy sweetness. After getting used to this special kind of smell, you get the feeling to have soap aroma (citrus?) in your nose. All in all the nose is full but well balanced.


Taste: Power, smoke and volume are the first three things coming to my mind. Then it gets spicy and first hints of oak come through. Sweet vanilla and warm ashes lead to a long finish, where the taste becomes drier and more spices appear.

Conclusion: Strong and forceful, never loosing the typical cheesy sweetness, great stuff!

Points: 90/100
