Colour: Amber Nose: Oak, Smoke, caramel Palate: Oak, smoke, raisin, sweet, medicinal, bitter Finish: Oak, raisin

Very good overall - a bold yet relatively well-balanced whisky. I did notice some undesirable medicinal notes however and there was a bit of a burn near the finish.

Compared with similar whiskies (such as the Laphroaig PX Cask that I reviewed recently) I think it is less delicately balanced and smooth. It also had less intense sweetness and raisin aromas. Would suit those who don't like the sherry casks to steal the show.

Well put.

Do you have a bottle code to share? It is in very small letters in white. Usually, you can find it on the lower back of the bottle just under the word "Limited."

Sure, I don't mind sharing the code: L13 176 14:49 6ML.

I opened the bottle on 12/05/2014 (the day of the review).

Unfortunately I can't compare it to previous batches myself since this is the first Uigeadail I've tried.
