[March, 2017]  When Uigeadail was released back in 2003 I found this a great dram and scored it 91 points.  It was simply delicious: very complex in its flavours and aromas and nicely balanced.  So I bought several bottles...

Almost 15 years later I tried a recent edition of Uigeadail and I am totally disappointed.  This is not the Uigeadail I adored.  This is simply weakish, unbalanced and hot stuff with a drying/bitter finish (I guess they use virgin oak in the actual recipe - back in 2003 they would have thrown you out of the distillery if you had proposed such a change, for sure).

So, unfortunately I have to degrade my scoring from 91 points (2003) to not more than 83 points today.

Erst sehr rauchig, danach kommt die Süße und Frucht durch. Der Rauch verschwindet mit der Zeit fast und man hat zeitweise das Gefühl, einen Whisky aus dem Sherryfass, der nicht rauchig ist, unter der Nase zu haben!

Taste

Voll und durchaus auch alkoholisch. Wasser tut hier Wunder. Rauch ist deutlich zu spüren, Würze, Orange, Süße.

Finish

Sehr lang und würzig mit Orange und ordentlich Rauch!

Comments

Sehr gut! Gefällt mir immer weider gut. 85.

​ Haha, mooie turf invloed. Ziltig, malt. Sterke guur, kampvuur. Rook, laat me SAN Laphroaig denken.

Taste

Heerlijk, erg sterke smaak.

Finish

Turf bom, heerlijke mooie ontwikkeling. Nasmaak blijk lang hangen, vers gebakken brood boven een kampvuur.

Met wat meer hout invloed was hij hoog in de 80 geëindigd.

This one lost something over the years. The peat is dominating, but it lost so much of the sherry influence! Just hints of aome sweetness, of aome citrus, a lot of oak, the finish is rather bitter and nothing much left after a while. Still good whisky though but ...

Nose

In der Nase modriges Holz, nasser Hund, eine dampfende Teerstraße, Rauch (abe mild), Desinfektionsmittel, Terpentin, getrocknete Rosinen, Sherry. 

Taste

Kräftig rauchig und pfeffrig im Antritt. Getrocknete Früchte kommen schnell und nehmen etwas von der (angenehmen) Schärfe. Der nasse Hund aus der Nase ist nun trocken. Der Geruch brennender Reifen liegt in der Luft.

Finish

Mittellang bis lang, mit schinkenwürziger Rauchnote, Salz+Pfeffer und Sherryaromen.

Comments

Ein Whisky, der polarisiert. Entweder, man mag ihn, oder man hasst ihn.
