Uigeadail The Ultimate Islay Single Malt Scotch Whiskey

Very peaty, campfire smoke hits the nose immediately. There’s a hint of raisin and some tar, then a long saline finish. One of the best Islay’s I’ve had. It is a beast; consider yourself warned if you prefer a lighter or fruitier flavor profile. — 19 hours ago

@Paul Treadway Huntington Beacher Bum noted. Yeah when I go whiskey I veer towards rye or bourbon.

Try a less exspensive unpeated, Usually its the peat & smoke that turn people off on scotch

@Paul Treadway Huntington Beacher Bum yeah it is definitely the smoke I don’t like. Hence my distaste for most mezcal

Single Malt Scotch Whisky 3rd Release 2001

Needs a touch of water. Caramel, silt and peat on the nose. Bit pepery taste at entry, the middle nice salty/iodine peat, pleasant lasting butterscotch. Nice filming the mouth feel. Well deserved after a long day of cooking. — 2 months ago
