    Ardbeg 'Uigeadail' (54.2%, OB, +/-2013)
    No I haven't got any laser codes or whatnot, but this one is recent for
    sure. The latest version I've tried was bottled circa 2010 and I loved
    it (WF 92). Colour: gold. Nose: it's not complicated, and I guess
    there's less super-old Ardbeg than in earlier batches anyway, but
    balance was found, with some straight smoke (exhaust) and then a combo
    of vanilla fudge, custard and lemon curd. A little wet paint as well,
    some leather and just a little tobacco. Maybe it's narrower than the
    first Uigeadails but so far, so good. And I enjoy these black olives
    that come out after ten minutes. With water: swims perfectly. Putty,
    almonds, seashells...

    Mouth (neat): it's perfect. Simple, but perfect.
    Impressive mouth feel. Lemon zests, bitter herbs, tar, brine and
    liquorice. It's certainly less rich and opulent than the first
    Uigeadails from ten years ago, but I'm not sure it's lost anything. I
    enjoy this more chiselled style. With water: smoother, with some orange
    blossom honey, but the tarry and liquoricy side remains big. Also
    kumquats and bergamots. Finish: long, with even more tar and smoke.
    Comments: by far my favourite current/recent official Ardbeg. I think
    the styles change a bit, but quality remains evenly high, if I may say
    so. SGP:458 - 92 points.whiskyfun.com
