Ardbeg Uigeadail

ArdbegArdbeg Uigeadail (NAS)

COLOR: Rust and the color of aged Sauternes
NOSE: An initial blast of beef jerky, wet tobacco, peat…PEAT!! After getting past all of the in your face BBQ’d meats you find vanilla extract, light citrus and creamy caramel
PALATE: Intense peaty introduction opening up to a rich smoked pork, wood charcoal and campfire near the sea.
FINISH: Long lingering finish with layers of smoke. So long in fact that after brushing my teeth and going to bed, I woke up to campfire smoke in my mouth like I’d been smoking a cigar from my wedding night.

My initial reaction to the Uigeadail was that I hated it. The intense smoke, peat and bbq’d meats turned me off completely. I pondered, while sitting in a leather chair and with an inquisitive look on my face, and gave it another try. I think that after the opened bottle had a chance to breath and oxidize a little, its intensity calmed down and became palatable. It’s not my main squeeze but I think it’s a great example of a peated, smoky malt. Enjoy.
