For Uigeadail in general, I wrote something in the standard version, this should be about the differences of the batches, so they are particularly highlighted. They are not quite as heavy as it sounds, it is already a similar whisky, but L8 already tastes clearly of older whisky and more sherry casks, but still both delicious whiskys. The difference of the recently compared Ben Nevis 10 variants, however, I found much clearer.
Comparison L8258 2008 against L65506 04/05/2016:
L8 is much darker than L6, the usual Einschenktropfen smells and tastes clearly fruity (red berries), the L6 not at all, harsh, dull, smoky
In the glass: Camp fire smoke, L6 ashier, fresher, sharper, in addition to greens - grass, lime peel, tree needles, L8 sweeter, softer, a bit greasy, the smoke brown sugar and dark berries ... time brings easy approach - for L6 a bit more depth and Sweetness towards chocolate, for L8 also a hint of coniferous forest
a lot of smoke, a lot of sweetness, L6 rather creamy, white and milk chocolate, ashes, bitter, resin, fir needles, white pepper, L8 first super soft and silky, the dark berries very short on the tongue, then brown sugar, herbal liqueur, then getting sharper and bitter, black pepper, herb bitters to cough syrup, resin
long, peppery, creamy-sweet turning into bitter, L6 somewhat resinous, L8 more herbs, cough drops
