Ardbeg 10 Years Old Single Malt Whisky
1 or more bottles$109.99
Ardbeg's flagship expression, revered around the World as the peatiest of all the Islay malts, yet perfectly balanced at the same time. An explosion of crackling peat sets off millions of flavour explosions: peat effervesces with tangy lemon and lime juice, black pepper pops with sizzling cinnamon-spiced toffee. Then comes a wave of brine infused with smooth buttermilk, ripe bananas and currants. Smoke gradually wells up on the palate bringing a mouthful of warm creamy cappuccino and toasted marshmallows. As the taste lengthens and deepens, dry espresso, liquorice root and tarry smoke develop coating the palate with chewy peat oils. The finish goes on and on – long and smoky with tarry espresso, aniseed, toasted almonds and traces of soft barley and fresh pear.

Scotland has a well-known and well-deserved global reputation for its whisky. But wine? Not where your mind immediately goes when you think of a thriving wine industry. Still, due to the impact of climate change, typically cool-climate areas find themselves experimenting and branching out into the business. Several entities have attempted to grow wine grapes here, such as Siegerrebe and Black Muscat, and though grapegrowing may not yet be flourishing here, growers and makers are cultivating other fruits for their wines, including gooseberries, raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, cherries, and rhubarb. Among the wineries bottling up some fruity goodness are Orkney Wine Company and Cairn O’Mohr.
The Isle of Islay on the West coast of Scotland is by far the most appreciated producing area among single malt lovers. Though its surface area is rather small there are no less than 8 active distilleries in production.
The region is responsible for some of Scotland's most powerful drams, often with plenty of peat and smoke, brine and medicinal flavours. Of all the whisky regions of Scotland, Islay has attained a truly iconic status. There is something magical about the illustrious Scottish Isle, some 35 miles from the coast of Northern Island.
