Ardbeg day was released for Feis Ile 2012 but is basically a Committee release. It's a fantastic whisky, and a departure for the distillery which normally releases very limited, exceptional single cask bottlings for the festival. Ardbeg Day is selected from and and married in refill sherry casks, previously used for Uigeadail.
This bottle was part of a private collection.

Nose: Big waft of Peat, nicely fruity. More than a hint of very old Speyside. Vanilla, BBQ sauce, kick of chilli. Maybe a touch of satay?
Palate: Full and rounded. Absolutely massive mouthfeel. Peat weaves in well with the nicely sherried notes. Touch of seaweed, camphor.
Finish: Sherry carries through into the finish, but a nice creaminess is contributed by the first fill bourbon too. Dries out at the death.
Overall: An absolutely fabulous dram. A cross between Uigeadail and Alligator. Uilleagator if you will...?

One of the best I've ever had. Tried it at my local pub, Delilah's, here in Chicago. A limited release. It left a memorable impression. The above dose a much better job than I can do to describe, but, I will concur! I walked out of there and straight to my local purveyor to grab a bottle, but no luck. If you can, give it a whirl. Over the top.
