Ardbeg Distillery is on the south coast of the isle of Islay, Argyll and Bute, Scotland, in the Inner Hebrides group of islands. The distillery claims to produce the peatiest Islay whisky and uses malted barley sourced from the maltings in Port Ellen. It is one of the fastest growing Islay distilleries. Ardbeg whisky is considered to be amongst the peatiest in the world, and certainly the core expression, Ardbeg 10 Year Old, is the peatiest standard expression from any whisky distillery with phenol content of 24ppm.


House Style: earthy, very peaty, smoky, salty and robust.

Tasting Notes

Taster: Michael Jackson

Nose: Sea air and smokiness – evocative sootiness.


Palate: Silky. The touch of fruitiness, usually reminiscent of lemons, is sweeter, with a momentary suggestion of cherries. The flavours become almondy and walnut-like, then rooty and peppery.


Finish: Long, haughty.


Comment: Lots of flavour development, complexity and refinement. Very elegant, but where is the clamour of battle?
