A play at the highest level!
Have had the great pleasure to test three fabulous whisky bottlings from one of the best distilleries, if not the best. And here are some great ideas for a Christmas gift, that will make Santa Claus very happy (provided that he / she likes whisky ).
First up is Ardbeg Uigeadail!
Named after their water source.
The golden drops are beautiful amber coloured with a dense smoky aroma and a hint of seaweed from the Atlantic Ocean. The taste is full of heather honey, smoked charcuterie, chocolate, vanilla and licorice. A great whiskey with a wonderful personality. Despite its price worth every penny.
I give it 97/100 points
The next challanger is Ardbeg Alligator!
Vanilla and honey with a balanced but distinct smokiness emerges. The taste is sweet and stays for a long time with aromas of orange, honey, caramel, smoked charcuterie, licorice and vanilla. A fantastic Whisky which is very impressive with power and balance that symbolizes the Terminator in great shape. I give it 99/100 points.
And last but not least, Ardbeg Supernova!
Wow! A real knock-out scent with a lovely sweet smokiness that clears away any debris in the airways for a few weeks to come. Huge masculine flavour that will rise Santa's hair on the chest and grow. Dried fruit, smoked charcuterie, honey and almonds with a real big bang in the mouth. With this personality, very demanding, but oh so brilliant. A real supernova in the whisky sky. 100/100 points.
When you test any of these whisky it's highly recommended that you supplement the glass with a few drops of cool water.
