Haha! I've sort of experienced this myself with Ardbeg. Took a bottle of half-supped Ardbeg Ten to a do I went to a while back and opened it in front of a few people. A couple could smell it straight away and sort of pulled their faces a little, so I offered them a taste. If memory serves, one of them tried it and pulled their face even more, which immediately put the other person off tasting it altogether!

Another time whilst in the company of two good friends and, erm, inebriated, I decided to put a little bit of Uigeadail in one of their glasses of port whilst he wasn't in the room to see if he noticed. He noticed to some tune just from the smell, but proceeded to drink it anyway. Ever since that episode, the merest mention of Ardbeg has them both shuddering...

Does this make Ardbeg the Marmite of the whisky world, or are there simply a lot of heathens out there? :D

I recently bought my first bottle of Ardbeg and I choose Uigeadail ( because of the sherry influence ( and the price tag) ) and instead of starting a new topic I decided to rejuvinate this old topic.

For now I only had 4 drams of it so bit early for me to post tasting notes.
As this is only my 3rd whisky with a ABV above 46% I tried it mostly with some water but the last 2 drams I had without water.

For now I must say the peat is more plant like to my liking and I am missing some smoke. At the moment I for instance the Talisker D.E. 1993 edition to this.

In the future I still want to try more Ardbeg like Airigh Nam Beist and the Correyvreckan but my next purchase will most likely be some softer whiskies.

Get the Airigh Nam Beist while you can. It's being discontinued. And it's much different from the Uigeadail. It's much more on fruit and 'softer' flavours than the Oogie.

At my new favorite local place to buy whisky (Total Wines, yes is rocks) they have an current inventory of about 10 bottles. I've already claimed two and plan on a couple more for safe keeping. :D

I cannot wait to try Corry and have heard a couple Oogie lovers say it's even slightly better.

Personally, I really prefer the Corry over the Beastie. I was never particularly impressed with Beastie or Blasda for that matter: Corry and Oogie are definitely my favourite current Ardbeg products!
