I like peaty whiskies. In fact, I love peaty whiskies. But I love complicated whiskies too, with layered flavours and intense characteristics.

Uigeadail is not a complex whisky. In fact, it's a very simple whisky: peat (and lots of it) and sherry sweetness. Drank unwatered it's probably too rough and simplistic, but when you dilute it with a bit of (cool) water it turns in to an explosion of peat and sweetness that just made me go "oh my god" and left me wanting more and more of it. Despite its peat and alcohol strength it was remarkably smooth and easy to gulp down.

I can't remember the last time I drank a whisky that was this good.

I like this so much without water that I have never yet bothered to try it with water. Nothing rough here by my account. Just ecstasy.

I agree with you about the water. Changes everything, my favorite dram

Oh Yeah ... that is a special scotch, but I find that there is a lot going on in that dram, especially after adding some water.
