Ardbeg 10 year old Single Malt Scotch Whisky is revered around the world as the peatiest, smokiest, most complex single malt of them all. Yet it does not flaunt the peat; rather it gives way to the natural sweetness of the malt to produce a whisky of perfect balance. Named World Whisky of the Year in 2008.

Full of intense smoky fruit, peat, and zesty lemon and lime, with menthol, black pepper, tarry ropes, graphite, smoked fish and crispy bacon, green bell peppers, baked pineapple, and pear juice. With water, a minerality reminiscent of cool, briny seaspray, plus beeswax, pine woodlands, vanilla, cinnamon, hazelnut, and almond toffee. Palate has crackling peat, lemon and lime, black pepper, cinnamon-spiced toffee, brine, buttermilk, ripe bananas, and currants. Finish has tarry espresso, aniseed, toasted almonds, soft barley, and fresh pear.

About the Producer

The small, remote Scottish island of Islay (pronounced 'eye-lah') is an antique land. A wild and untamed place, where Celtic monks found refuge from raiding Norsemen and early distillers smuggled their illicit "aquavitae" at Ardbeg's rugged rocky cove.

Abundant soft water, fertile soil and acres of precious peat makes this island a place of pilgrimage for the single malt whisky faithful. And none more so than our very own Ardbeg, unquestionably the greatest distillery on Earth.

For over 200 years, Ardbeg has been made on Islay. Some people travel to Ardbeg along the winding road from Port Ellen. Others follow their nose, their destiny or the advice of a good friend.

Ardbeg has been called “as close to perfection as makes no difference,” by whisky connoisseurs. Proof then, that Ardbeg truly deserves its incredible reputation. It’s a whisky that’s worshipped around the world. Six different Ardbeg expressions have won prestigious titles including World Whisky of the Year, Scotch Whisky of the Year and World’s Best Single Malt.
