Here are my notes from a bottle I finished a few months ago:
Size: Generous Dram in Glencairn
N: Vanilla, peat, bonfire smoke, vanilla, kombucha.
P: Dark chocolate, turbinado sugar, sherry, grilled asparagus, sea salt, almonds, burning peat, kombucha, ash, clotted cream, road tar, toasted barley.
The burn was hot due to a nice generous ABV. With a teaspoon of water the heat backs off and the sweetness rises with a bit of salt comingling with some sourness. Sweet and sour.
F: Long finish with smoke, tart vinegar, waves of peat, and a little sherry.
A fairly young tasting Uigeadail that did not impress as much as others I tasted first at the Highland Stillhouse, as well as at friends' houses. Not sure the code on those other bottles. The cork in my bottle was fine, no signs of rot. I find Ardbeg's corks to be quite good, generally speaking. I have tasted other Uigeadails prior to L12 216 that I would rate at about 91 or 92.
