    Phil W,

    This is a fantastic whiskey. It's very smooth with no burn or need for ice to open it up. There's a lovely smoked salami aftertaste. Greg, you contradict your review. You give it 79/100 on your blog, yet 2/5 here, which equates to 40/100.

    James Smithers,

    A magnificent smoke show of a whiskey. A real classic, buy whilst you can... this and the 21 are the best Ardbegs in decades. Wonderful stuff!

    Kathie S,

    Peppery, oily smoke, intense but not as knock your socks off as the Corry. Not as much peat at the 10 but still very interesting. I'm so glad I bought it!

    Tasting notes cover it but I will say it's nice not to have any hint of Sherry in my whisky.

    Eric Wilson,

    Ardbeg is my favorite distillery. The 10 yr is a solid, go-to dram. The Oogie has richness and great balance. The Corry has an explosion of flavors that some think is too much but I love. With all that in mind, I thought the Kelpie would be tame and uninteresting. To my surprise, I took my first sip and fell in love. The Kelpie reminds me of my childhood in Oregon, starting with a buttery, almost lemon zest flavor that swells into a salty, briny salmon flavor with a finish of smooth smoke. I love it. And yes, it does pair very well with seafood.
