Ardbeg Ulgeadail - 54.2% - 700ml
PRODUCT TYPE: Whisky
Ardbeg famously make big peaty smoky whiskies with a touch of salinity. This is because their warehouse is on the coast, so over the years, it absorbs some the salt in the air. Pronounced (Oog-a-dal), this expression is named after the loch where they precure their water, and is a marriage of bourbon barrels and sherry butts at cask strength. On the nose ,peaty, smoky, with little touches of coffee, chocolate, dark sugar and leather. On the palate, sweet, ripe fruit and cake like notes, but then is overthrown by big peat and barbecue smoke. A very long finish with dry spice, sweet honey and a lingering smoke. An amazing whisky , drink in a big balloon after a long day.
