    Aroma: rich: strong smoke from just extinguished fire, tar; minerality, raw earth, it all intertwines with sweet and sour fruit, dried fruits, raisins, apricots, marshmallows, tobacco leaf, varnished wood, sea smells: iodine, kelp, fresh breeze.

    Taste: red pepper, smoky-sweet, oily dried apricots and raisins, mineral-salty, rind of Borodino bread, activated charcoal, earthiness.

    Finish: longer than average, smoky, prunes, mineral and salty, rye bread, slowly fading, buttery.

    Bottom line: a slight disappointment ... This Ugadale I have bottled in 2015, and 2012 I put 91-92, probably started saving on something! Maybe the average age of alcohols was reduced, the savings on the barrels can ... There is an opinion that regular releases (Corrie and Ugadale) they began to do worse, to sell limit releases more successfully, which manufacturer will make a regular-quality regular for 70 € if you can sell same Grooves or Kelpie for 120-150 €. Although maybe I am mistaken, and this is not my very successful game. Well, in general, it costs its money, but from a wonderful one it turned into just a very good whisky, having lost some of its complexity.

    sadly only a slim ghost of a shadow of the Uigeadail that came out in 2003
