Ardbeg Uigeadail review

Obviously I’ve already heard that Ardbeg Uigeadail is a legendary non age statement whisky by the famous smoke whisky producer in Islay. But I didn’t know that when I first discovered this whisky by accident (got a miniature gift bottle while purchasing the Ardbeg 10yo). Ardbeg Uigeadail has made quite […]

Ardbeg 10 year old review

WhiskyRant conclusions Tasting notes Warehouse Pack Ardbeg distillery can be traced back to 1794, but it had to be closed in the 1980’s. It almost became one of the lost distilleries of Scotland, but fortunately Ardbeg was bought by Glenmorangie in 1997. The distillery got a major investment programme and […]

Sheep Dip whisky review

The name Sheep Dip comes from the insesticide used to delouse sheep prior to sheering. Back in the day, farmers used to make “home made whisky”, because they didn’t want to pay any taxes for it. To help hiding their whisky, they marked each barrel with “SD”. Great story and […]

Big Peat review

Big boy – A DIE HARD whisky Big Peat is Die Hard. Offering smoky explosions and heavy blasting, yet hints of the soft and tender side, mostly for the nose. Big Peat’s personification, Beauregard I. G. Peat, is surely a citizen of Islay. You can tell that from miles away, […]

Big Peat Christmas Edition 2012 Cask Strength review

Great sequel – DIE HARD II whisky I already reviewed the original Big Peat. This is the same stuff but cask strength. Nice sequel for the “Die Hard whisky“, as I referenced Big Peat. Same ingredients but with more power and explosions. Just like Die Hard II, this dram follows […]

Ardbeg Galileo review

Ardbeg Galileo has an age statement (1999-2012), unlike recent Ardbegs. Containing whisky matured in ex-Marsala and first and second fill ex-Bourbon casks. It has the same ppm as standard Ardbeg whiskys but the Marsala softens it quite a bit. Rich and sweet dram with an Ardbeg touch. Ardbeg Galileo is […]
