Ardbeg – Ar10 – Elements of Islay

Thanks to both /u/devoz and /u/distillation for this sample.

So we just finished a Lagavulin independent bottled double cask. What can beat that? I am a Lagavulin fanboy, after all.

Oh, yeah, I’m also an Ardbeg fanboy. And a huge obvious stereotype whisky drinker.

Thus we haveArdbeg – Ar10 – Elements of Islayup next, yet another of the chemistry themed independent bottled single & double casks that all come from Islay (so far, let’s see if they branch out). What next? Speyside based on biological taxonomic ranks? Because I’m down with that.

Getting back to it, this is a 17-year-old Ardbeg from the early oughts. I’ve had the privilege of reviewing 70s and 90s Ardbegs and make up my mind. It’s time to start working on those years I was finishing university.

Let’s see how this tastes, shall we?

Price:N/A at the LCBO
