Which would you choose?

Which would you choose between these two, given they were the same price and why.

For me this is easy. The Uigeadail easily wins. The combo of sherry and peat torches the corry. The Uigeadail is also more complex to me and I find the Corry to be more of a one trick pony (don't het me wrong the Corry is enjoyable in its own right but can't compare in this case).

Sorry but I'm not going to vote. I struggled between the PE and the Brora already. I like both to much. It all depends on the mood I'm in.

I preferred the Oogy to the original Corry. Not sure about the new Corry yet.

Definitely the Corry for me, it has a wonderful mouth feel and such a gorgeous taste. Just altogether more Ardbeggy.

Oogie. Corry just doesn't strike me right although I found the General Release more enjoyable than the Committee Release. I much prefer the Beist to both.

I enjoy the Corry more than the Uige. Not withstanding that I do not like sherry with my peat that much, the Corry has that extra kick and a hint of chocolate fudge to go with the underlying citrus that just gives it so much depth.

Not going to vote since I have not had the Corry, but in reading various review and notes I am fairly sure I would prefer the Oogy. I love the mix of sherry and peat, sounds like the Corry is more of a peat and smoke blast..while I like that I prefer Laph for that.
