Ardbeg Ten

A straight Islay classic, Ardbeg’s Ten

Aged: 10 years, funnily enough

Colour: light golden

Strength: 46%

Price bracket: around £35

Best for: big flavours

Nose: hints of sea salt, smoked fish and citrus with plenty of peat

Taste: full bodied, with smoky wet roads at the back, a hint of salt, deep rich coffee and a wonderful tingle at the end, not to mention a flourish of banana fruitiness in its midst. Finish is pleasingly long

Verdict: you just can’t mistake this for anything else. If you like a peat hit with bundles of flavour wrapped in there as well, this is a whisky to spend some time with. Rolls around the mouth deliciously.
