Ardbeg Distillery Uigeadail
|Category||Single Malt Scotch|
|Region||United Kingdom, Scotland, Islay|
Wine EnthusiastDark amber color and brooding, smoky scent. Although intense peat is characteristic of Islay Scotches and Ardbeg in particular, here the smoke goes too far. It starts with lovely vanilla, brine and light smoke, but the peat party simply goes on far too long. Adding water softens the feel of this cask-strength Scotch, but does nothing to dampen the smoke.
