Whisky Reviews for Ardbeg Uigeadail
25 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.98 points
- 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?
- very nice dram , needs water to open up
smoke , peat , citrus , wood
ash , tar , smoke , salt , citrus , sweet
nice long finish , citrus and tar
- 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.
- Single dram note from an Uigeadail tasting:
L10 151 11:48 6ML
Transferring previous Note (2011.12.20) content into a Tasting Note
peat, garlic, spirity, toasted bread,
lemon peel, spirit, peat, ash, tar & asphalt
burning alc, peat, wood, vanilla, a tad dryer/sour
- 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
Beautiful smoke - nice and mild; sweetness; cured ham (reminds me of Lagavulin 16yo); classic beef jerky.
(water) - still very meaty nose.
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.
with water and a lot of time - i get some "root beer"
- One of the best drams i ever tasted!
