What a disappointing development to compare Uigeadail bottlings from its release in 2003 and bottlings ten years later.

The original Uigeadail epitomized all the amazing qualities observed in the re-opening editions ("almost there", "still not there" etc.)
The original peat qualities ranged form hickory-smoked bacon and Unagi to Barbeque sauce and leather, supported by a delicate quality of orange peel and fresh Meyer lemons.

All of the above have faded into the background behind a pronounced, solvent-like alcohol note, and the peat is nowhere near as complex, with faint phenolic, musty qualities left.

Whereas it used to be enjoyable and intense neat, the pungent alcohol has become unbearable and seems to deliver only half as much intensity and aroma on the finish.

The demise of this bottlings has been even faster and more painfully apparent than that of Lagavulin 16, which is saying a lot.
