Un bon peat avec une belle complexité.
Un bon peat avec une belle complexité.
as peaty as it comes!
Nice and complex. Pure joy.
ashes, lemon, malt, old lady's closet, water adds sherry notes - dried fruit and raisins, vanilla and fudge appearing later on
citrus, sweet lemon drops, all covered in ashy smoke, salty sea water
long ... sweet and sour turning into longlasting ashy aftertaste
Many strong flavors, but they're all well balanced. Strong, peaty nose. Smoke and caramel flavor. Peaty finish.
Strong nose, lots of peat.
So much peat, with sugar, caramel and smoke.
Smoke and caramel, giving way to peat and pepper.
Einer meiner Lieblinge
peat & sweet
Sweet, smokey and peaty. Great stuff. Awesome nose.
fruchtig im Mund mit feibem Rauch und einem unterschwelligen Alkoholgeschmack der sich im Mund unten sammelt und langsam aufsteigt
peaty and smoky smell, with lots behind. herbal, bandaid, hospital smell, old wood and something difficult to catch. do you know how smell od wooden church? exactly like this.
taste is amazingly complex. sour and sweet, herbal notes woody and smoky like campfire smoke.
it is one of my favourite
Wonderful dram. Nice smoke. Sweet notes. Nice long finish. Few drops of water makes the sweet notes come out. Surprised that at 54% ABV, the alcohol is not hard on the nose or on the palette. I will be stocking this whisky for sure.
Sweet taste with plenty of peat and smoke aromas. More gentle than the 10 years, it's a lovely malt!
Waves of woodsmoke racing past fruity aromas to wrstle in the nose, while some meaty salinity slips by. Rich dried fuits on the tongue on first approach, before immense smoke starts rushing in, which in turn fades away to long, numbing TCP on the tongue at the finish
Top whisky. Needs water
Spirity and oaky. Needs a lot of time in the glass. Subtle sherry after time
Good balance of sweet and smokey. Sherry notes are subtle.
very smokey and peaty, but very well rounded and well tasting!
such a well rounded smokey/fruity baseball bat to the face
Smoked meats/bacon. Stay away if you are not a fan of smoke/peat. Otherwise a fun dram.
Smoked ham/bacon. hints of maple and brine
Pronounced savoury smoke but relatively smooth conpared to other peated Islay. Friendly for a 54%ABV
Goes for a while.
The most interesting whisky i've drunk so far. Peat and smoke aroma is strong but the taste is delicious, rounded (smooth?) if i can say that.
This is really good. After purchasing a bottle, I immediately had to buy another. One of the most intense, and so full of flavour.
Nose: orange, chocolate, fruit, smoke, vanilla
Body: vanilla, cask strength, toffee,
Finish: smoke, lengthy, lingering, warming
amazing peat up front with smoke and raisins with honey and other dark fruits in the middle. long smoke and pepper finish
balanced peat and sherry. not as smokey.
sherry ,peat, smokey
Solid Peaty Scotch with some Sherry influence.
smoke, iodine, salt, peat
smoke, vanilla, spice, coffee, oak
long, smooth very little alchohol bite
The peat kicks in like a freight train ar first but smooths out quickly to a really pleasant finish. May not be for everyones taste but this dram packs a punch and takes you straight to the seaside with the palate.
A touch of water really helps to bring the complexities to the surface, however muddled. I struggle with this whisky neat, much prefering the Corryvreckan.
Concentration and position play a large part in exploring the flavours. The sherries finish is present at the tip of the tongue very briefly. Subtle sweet elements show but the earthy smoke core is prominent throughout. An intriguing dram.
Dark cherries, sherry, peat, smoke, cinnamon, walnut, alcohol kick.
Fleeting sweet berries on the tip of the tongue. Malt. A hard to pin down complexity; barley, cinnamon, honey, cracked black pepper. Thick smoke and tar build into the finish.
A long smooth smoke, cracked pepper. Sweet trace.
Best deal whisky, cause it delivers so much flavour and energy for really reasonable money. Wonderful dark juice.
Flavour bomb exploding in front of my nose. One of the most exciting whiskies!! Much smoke, but woodsmoke and only very few iodine. Polished leather and old diesel. Also much juice orange coming up.
Warm, oily, mouth filling. Dark sweetness and much smoke. Bacon, spices, sandalwood, BBQ sauce. Very wild.
Long, warming, smoky and a bit salty. Beautiful end of a wonderful dram.
Great Ardbeg with tar, peat, seaweed, polish, sherry, sweetness, caramel. Oily on the tongue. However I prefer the Corryvreckan where I think the peat is more integrated. But that is criticism on a high level.
very refreshing, super smooth for such a high proof scotch. would buy again.
sweet at first, almost cognac-y, followed by peat, smoke and mineral and medicinal notes. adding water mellows it out, with the sweet tones more accentuated (vanilla and some chocolate)
The nose continues after a sweet arrival, and developing into more smoke and peat, with even minty touches and a bit of wood
long, very long even, with obviously smoke leading the way, with a final finish in dry notes with smoked nuts. Adding water twists up the finish in a weird way and disturbed the balance somewhat.
versatile, complex and powerful, with subtle nuances if you give it the time it takes to get passed the obvious peat and smoke. So much more than just a peatbomb. Even at a very respectable 54,2% ABV it doesn't really need water to shine like the star it is! 88/100
smoke and peat with a hint of sweet on the end
deep smoke. bbq sweetness
peat, smoke, light fruit, espresso-coffee
It's a backyard barbeque in a bottle, honey, soot, malt. reminds of glazed ribs.

Fruit, honey, malt, smoke, coffee

until now the best whisky for me
Ich mag gerne rauchige Whisky und Sherry gelagerte Whisky. Dieser Whisky vereint beides sehr harmonisch.
Ich hätte mir etwas mehr Rauch erwartet. Nach ein paar Mal riechen verschwindet der Rauch fast komplett und der Sherry kommt deutlich in den Vordergrund.
Im Mund ist der Rauch dann aber sofort wieder da. Trotz dem hohen Alkoholgehalt sehr angenehm zu trinken. Man muss kein Wasser verwenden, wenn man es trotzdem tut kommt die Fruchtigkeit vom Sherry immer weiter in den Vordergrund.
Dieser Whisky hat es damit momentan zu meinem Lieblingswhisky geschafft.
Für den Preis zu wenig Highlight
Torf, Holz, Tannenzapfen, verregneter Wald
Sherry-Süße eher zu Beginn; im weiteren Verlauf keine Ausreißer; keine Highlights
Schärfe im Abgang
der kann was ! leider NAS
süße, speckigkeit, dezenter Sherry, leichte maritime Noten
anfangs süße, dann pfeffrigkeit , leichte Bitterkeit wie Espresso, leichter Tabak Geschmack, dezenter Rauch
prickeln bleibt , dezente angenehme Richtigkeit Bleibt , leichte bitterkeit
Einer der besten Whiskys am Markt.
Both the nose and palate are pleasantly peaty, smoky and sweet; smooth going down despite high abv. Finish has some bitterness on the backend but overall an enjoyable dram.
Suurepärane, magus ja turbane.
The first release of the Uigeadail was definitely one of the best drams I’ve ever tasted. It has gotten at bit less oily for every bottling they’ve done.. but still in my top 10.
Round, and full,outlaw in leather jacket,dark and strong character,must have on the shelf..with water open fruity notes but with still enough smoke and peatiness
Strong peat and smoke, a little leathery bitterness and then some sweetness and dried red fruits
Een uitbreiding van de 10 jaar op alle vlakken. Heerlijke lange afdronk
A chocolate taste, with raisin and leather notes. A lot of peat, but not enough to overwhelm the palate.
sweet, Smoky, peaty and full of tasty raisin notes. absolutely fantastic when gently warmed
Totally unique. Very peaty, but balanced: it's actually quite sweet with many floral flavours and a bit of spice. Not so smooth, but really dense and clingy, almost dry. Immense finish, like a smoking gun barrel. Definitely an acquired taste, this is one to try with a cleansed palate and fully savoured. If you're a fan of peat, you have to try it. I'm a big fan of Islay whiskies and this may be my favourite whisky of all.
Bonfire, sea mist, drying oak, pine.
12-gauge, fig, raisin, honey, salt
Clinging ash and embers. The peat stays longer than the dried fruit.
really good, not great. nice peat but not as complex as I was expecting.
What a pleasant smell fills the room at bottle opening. A full medicinal smell with iodine, peat and red fruit.
Very sweet and very complex.
Mound is covered with herbal sweet oil with alcohol in the back.
The taste is a complex combination of herbs, fire, pepper, dried fruit, licorice and salt.
What a tremendous whisky this is.
90 points overall.
Lightly smokey and full of rich fruitcake and spices
Treacle, raisins and smoke
Slightly smokey with rich fruitcake
Long and smokey with coffee and raisin
very smoky just as you might expect from this Islay peatmonster. A bit sweet and smooth finish. 54% but so easy to drink. love it!
tastes like drinking campfire.. but the smoothest campfire I have ever tasted.
Great Islay whisky with fantastic smoky flavor.
Peat Smoke: 5/5

Peat Smoke: 5/5

Unbelievably smokey, like walking into a small crofters hut and sitting next to a peat fire; beautiful.
Caramel send smooth
Burst of peat with hints of chocolate and sherry,long sweet honey finish. A fantastic delight! One of my favorites. Another reason I have a spare bottle.
Very peaty, bold, and smoky, the type of whisky that lovers of Islay long for. If not for the price, it might edge out Laphroaig as my favorite whisky.
very peaty. great smoke. love it
Quite wonderful Islay whisky. Strong taste of smoke and peat but smooth. With very long aftertaste.
one of my all time favorites
Lots of smoke and peat on the nose but still some sweetness of over-ripe bananas and christmas fruit cake. Very oily smooth entry in the mouth with lots of peatiness initially which then develops into coconut and steamed fish. Lingering pleasant flavourful finish! Amazing all throughout!
delicate, well balanced peat; wood; delicate, brown sugar sweetness
well balanced alcohol
Exellent peated whisky
Smokey Peat with a hint of sherry. espresso and tar
