At home I replaced my empty Uigeadail with this Ardbeg Ten.
Bottled at 46%, this expression had no filtering nor additional colouring. The appearance is almost like white wine.
You immediately know what you can expect when the bottle is opened. Peat fills the room.
First nosing also gives peat only,
But after a while other stuff comes trough. Heavy dry oak, orange, smoked ham(umami), a forest after a rain shower and the usual Islay components like iodine, brine and bonfire.
The very pleasant sweet taste is a bit malty, but spicy oak and a teeth covering oily caramel keep this one well rounded and balanced.
The long sweet spicy finish is very peaty, aromatic and intense.
I got forest, brine, hospital, citrus, caramel, tar, espresso, nuts and so on and so on.
Altough this one has an age statement, I think the Nas Uigeadail is a bit better on all parts of the tasting.
Still, very nice and very advisable.
This one has a fixed spot in the head group of all available 10 year old single malts I think.
