Ardbeg 10 Year Old

Ardbeg is distilled on the island of Islay. It was named a World Whiskey of the Year in 2008.

Color: Pale, almost clear
Nose: Strongly peaty
Palate: Very mellow. It has no harshness. You can swish this whiskey in your mouth for a long time.
Finish: Sweet

This is a classic example that you don't need ageing in fancy wood to make a good whiskey. This whiskey is reasonably priced and I will add this to my birthday list.
