An excellent malt, with a fantastic and powerful peat, but it is absolutely not just peat. To the nose prominent comes the peat, then a citrusy side of lemon, cocoa, a fruity note, a slight vanilla and finally a toasted note.
On the palate: again the first encounter is peat, powerful and persistent but which leaves room for hints of lemon juice, a very slight salted caramel and pepper, and finally sweeter notes of fruit then iodine with a light seaweed.
Medium-long finish in which smoke and peated essence dominate then a pinch of coffee beans and a hint of vanilla.
I love this whiskey because it has a great character.

I guess Islay just isn't my thing. I liked the smoky taste and finish, but it was hard to get past the nose. The main aroma I got was iodine or what I might describe as Sharpy Marker. Overall, I think my money will be best spent elsewhere.

This is an Islay single malt Scotch, smoky, peaty and it is as smooth as a ten-year-old gets. It is comparable to Laphroaig, but I find it less medicinal, less of an iodine flavor. Very much for Islay lovers. If you like a good cigar, are a smoker, or you like smoky foods, you might give this a try. Top in it’s category.

This is my first Islay whisky and I must say, I'm positively surprised. After pouring a dram the peat smoke is very upfront. The color is almost like white wine. After a while in the glass the peat smoke fades a bit to the background and a briny citrus scent comes trough.

Oily mouthfeel, sweet vanilla and spicy oak at first, a tingle on the tongue followed by peat smoke.

Long, warm dry finish where smoke fades into tobacco and a bit of leather in the background.

A great introduction to peated whiskies in my opinion.

I had some kind of reverence before approaching this malt for the first time, so I delayed it a bit in my Islay tasting map.
Once I finally purchased a bottle, I've been impressed by its strong full taste and clear natural colour.
Not only peat in this malt, but some lemon and an intriguing medicinal taste. Thin on the palate and rich rich long finish, for a very peculiar and strong dram. Thumbs up!

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.
Nice!!!

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.

92 points.

General description

This surprisignly pale and quite thin dram has a simple and smoky nose, with a hint of floral sweetness that alludes to coffee, but that's as far as the floral notes get. The palate is an immediate black pepper punch that sticks around and almost overpowers, but then gives way to all kinds of rich salt. Seaweed and miso come to the fore once the spice has finished, and these carry right on through to its long finish. The level of salt here is almost too much: this is not a carefully balanced Islay, but a full-on flourish through the peat and all the way out to sea. Not particularly complex, this is definitely one for only certain occasions, but I like its strength, its boldness and its clinging finish

Nose

Smoke, coffee grind, salt.

Palate

Black pepper, salt, seaweed, miso.

Very salty end.
