  4. Thermidor scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    A superficial replica of what Uigeadail used to be. Strangely sweet, as if finished.
    • Nose
      A fishy, yeasty smoke. BBQ and burned seashells, and some juniper. Water doesn't change it much.
    • Taste
      Lots of sweet sherry, then the usual peat and seaside tastes of Ardbeg, but the distillate feels simple and young, and the sherry feels like a separate layer masking things. Sharp, simple, and compared to what Uigeadail ought to be, bad.
    • Finish
      Fleeting. Leaves an odd taste of juniper or eucalyptus.

  7. Danlow scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    A bottle for the steady bar, which means that this is one of the few bottles that will be bought after it has been emptied.
