位於蘇格蘭艾雷島的 Ardbeg 曾是島上最具規模的威士忌酒廠，經歷多次經營權轉換後，在九十年代末方能持續穩定釀造佳釀，並於 2008 年起屢獲殊榮後重回鎂光燈下。
Ardbeg 10 年聞香帶有青檸、海水、煙三文魚等香氣，入口有如正山小種紅茶、 柑橘皮、鯡魚乾等味道，伴隨著陣陣泥煤氣息，以煙燻感為主的收結頗為悠長。
Officially established as early as 1815, but the Ardbeg distillery probably pre-dates its 'commercial' (and legal) start by a decade or two. Located on the Southern ‘Kildalton’ shore of Islay, a little further than Lagavulin and Laphroaig on the coastal road from Port Ellen.
A bright and fresh nose full of lime, seawater, smoked salmon, beeswax, and a wee tarry touch that are so typical of this distillery. Rolling the liquid around on the palate reveals lapsang souchong, citrus zest, smoked almond oil, kippers, brine, hessian sacks, and an explosion of crackling effervescent peat. A rather long, smokey and mineral-rich earth beaten by the cold Atlantic ocean finish.
