    In my quest to find an Ardbeg that I really like I am trying this for the first time. Not really sure what batch it is.

    On the nose I get peat, sweaty socks and something cheesy, I got the same with the 24 year 1977, its not the peat that is the issue.

    With time it does improve in the glass and gets a little sweeter.

    With water, I just get peat and nothing else really. I find it one dimensional and boring profile wise.

    The search goes on, maybe Alligator next. I am leaning that a really heavily sherried ardbeg might be the way forward?

    For me, the Uigeadail needs a couple of waterdroplets. It is only then it opens up fully. Without water, it is too difficult to feel anything besides ethanol.

    Smoky and fruity aroma, banana, toffee, tinned

    pear, mint, dark chocolate, vanilla and spruce wood. Marzipan sweet and

    smoky taste, eucalyptus, pepper, ginger, anise, ripe orange, vanilla

    and malt. Long, smoky, spicy and malty end.

    excellent dram. it fully met my very high expectations.
    L10 151 13:36 6ML
    • Nose
      Beautiful smoke - nice and mild; sweetness; cured ham (reminds me of Lagavulin 16yo); classic beef jerky.
      (water) - still very meaty nose.
    • Taste
      a bit of a shocker as the nose does not prepare for the flavour. a bit prickly (the ABV speaking); peat, touch of salt. there is much more in there but hard to pin down. complex nose nonetheless.
      (water) - it took some water to tame it. once the % is not biting it becomes just so delicious.
    • Finish
      everlasting. amazing.
      with water and a lot of time - i get some "root beer"

    • Nose
      Heavy smoky notes in the nose, a little salt, wood and lovage. After a time to blow, the smoke is gone, the combination of wood, salt, leather and herbs, even a bit fleshy dominates the picture
    • Taste
      The body begins with smoke, burned wood, salt. Strong, woody body, but quickly in the finish
    • Finish
      The finish is dominated by salt, in the background are the salt notes, at the end there is again a bit of sweetness from the alcohol.
