Excerpt: Ardbeg Uigeadail is a great whisky. The balance of the smokiness and sweetness is a beautiful harmony. Paired with the intense spice, it makes for a well-rounded palate that does not leave one wanting more.
Excerpt: While I have myself experienced direct showdowns between newer and older bottles of this dram and lived to bear witness to the varying personalties of each, I can also say that as a regular release Uigeadail retains a level of quality which eludes the vast majority of single malts on the market today. Shorthand: this is tasty as hell.

This is another cask strength (or near cask strength) offering from Ardbeg. This one has some sherry blended in, also.
Smoke. Peat. Smoke. Peat. Plastic! This is a really dense nose, and its mildly overwhelming but not in an off putting way.
Theres a whole lot more smoke in this dram, and it tastes like a big puddle of burnt plastic. Thicker, oilier. Theres some pleasant sweetness, some vanilla, faint fig and stewed fruit. Then its back to fairly aggressive peat.
The finish is long and slowly fading. No real heat, just smoke.
Although this supposedly has more sherry than the Corry, it wasnt as sweet. It was still delicious, though.
