Here's my two bob on the matter. I'll keep this to the point; I get marzipan and figs on the nose with a bit of sweet rubber, like a new Wellington boot.

This whisky is quite an assault on the senses. Sea salt, smoke, aniseed, cured meats with hints of dusty wood, flaked fish food and mint Matchmakers.

Oily and rich of body. Its fairly arresting to take in at first but the finish is very smooth for the ABV.

Not sure if this is the coolest thing to say but I MUCH prefer this without water.

I've been on the lookout for this one. Hard to come by in Texas. I really enjoy the 10yo and want another Ardbeg to sample.

It won't disappoint if you can get hold of it.

This is my favourite Ardbeg expression. I think water adds to the nose a little, but flattens the taste, so I prefer it without as well.

Uigeadail is an excellent Ardbeg, but not one for beginners.

Love, love, love Uigeadail! Couldn't afford their Lord of the Isles, but it would have a lot of work to do to compete.
