Ardbeg Uigeadail

This was the first bottling of the newly opened Ardbeg distillery under the new banner. It was bottled from 90% ex-bourbon casks and 10% ex-sherry casks. The Ardbeg Uigeadail is fruitier and smoother than the normal Ardbeg TEN.

Aroma: Peat, bonfire, burning charcoal, chocolate, fresh strawberries & raisins. There is some notes of paint thinner as well.

Taste: Initially it comes across watery. Builds to a rich smoky, spicy body quickly. Oily in texture. A light honey glazed nutty sweetness builds to a maple and tannin rich red fruit with espresso notes.

Finish: Is all spice, smoke and oak w/ a slight sweetness

Comment: This tasting was done towards the tail end of the bottle that has been open for close to a year. I distinctly remember it being more powerful and flavorful in the past. Definitely didn't start of watery on the palate. Don't want to give it a score in its current state but if I had to 83/100.
