Dark… mysterious… Uigeadail!

The Ardbeg Distillery is arguably one of the greatest distilleries on Earth. It produces one of the most peated Scotch Whiskies. The distillery was started in the early 18th century on the south coast of the isle of Islay, Argyll and Bute, Scotland, and is now owned by Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy. During the years it was closed and reopened several times, as the majority of other distilleries in Scotland, and changed owners many times; however it has never lost the genuine devotion of producing The Ultimate Islay Malt.

Ardbeg Uigeadail is one of their finest and most-loved expressions. It won Double Gold medal at San Francisco World Spirit Competition 2017 and it was named the Whisky of The Year 2009 by Jim Murray's Whisky Bible. The Uigeadail is named for the Loch from where Ardbeg draws its waters, and in Gaelic stands for Dark and Mysterious Place. The Uigeadail is a marriage of Ardbeg's Whisky aged in Bourbon barrels and Sherry butts. It’s bottled at cask strength for maximum flavor impact. Oo-Yeah.

Ty
Ty,
I like all styles of scotch from sweet and soft, to rich and peaty, and this is my favorite. Experiment with adding dashes of water for the most rewarding experience.
Ryan
Ryan,
a smoke-jumpers wet dream, it is smokey, strong and little surprises pop up here and there such as a blast of Vanilla Cavendish. I very much appreciate that they are able to get the smoke and peat without the usual petrol and formaldehyde. i am not a fan of the high smoke/peat scotch but this one has managed to cut out the parts that I disliked, I will be trying more from this distiller.

Wonderful dram! Economical as well as the cask strength allows a tiny bit more water.
Michael
Michael,
A wonderful dram. Intense, sweet on the tongue, smoke and peat finish. And such a long finish. I usually enjoy my scotch neat, but a splash of water enhances this one greatly.
James
James,
Very good. A smoother smoke.
Stephen
Stephen,
I'm a fan of scotch aged in sherry casks. The smoke and peat are slightly subdued by the sweetness, but if you love your scotches smokey with a twist of sherry And some bite - this one is for you.

Char, butter, salty. Like the bottom of a movie theatre popcorn bucket.

Oh how I love this Scotch, it has overtake the Lagavulin 16 as my favorite. It is an absolute 10. A nice balance of smoke, that is not overwhelming, with the richness of the Sherry. Perfect!!!
William
William,
Wonderful from beginning to end. I tasted it with laphroiag 10 for comparison. I love both but the complexity and lingering delicious aftertaste that really distinguishes it as a first rate whisky.
Dominic
Dominic,
Ardbeg Uigeadail has an intense smoky flavor that I haven't seen rivaled in any other scotch. If you like a smoky Islay, this is a must.

What to say about this one, every sip I took I caught something new. Put a few drops of water in, and opened up so many sweet notes I hadn't been fully immersed in at the beginning. Besides the fact that even if you only took a sip ever 10 minutes, the last vestiges of that brilliantly long finish would still just be lingering. Phenomenal. Will always be on my bar from now on.

George,
Ardbeg Uigeadail was too peaty for my taste. Perhaps I will acquire more of a taste for it. For now, I am more comfortable with something like MACALLAN.

Perfect balance! Full of flavor and follow through.

This is a wonderful, Isla scotch. A drop or two of water changes it but does not compromise it. One of our always in the cupboard.

Perfectly smokey and smooth
James

Love it! Great balance for something so heavily peated!
Kegan
Kegan,
Excellent Islay, medium peat needs a dash of water. Plenty of oak and richness from the sherry. Really worth the price.
Cory
Cory,
Favorite peaty, campfire in a glass at a great price.
Diogenes
Diogenes,
Stupid amounts of peat. Very strong alcoholic flavor with a numbing quality. Kinda like a spritz of chloraseptic. Even after an ice cube or two it was still a bit rough for my taste.
Christopher
Christopher,
I had high hopes for this, bought it to share with some friends and it was a flop. We couldn't finish the glass. The only flavor that came through was the peat, and then the burn stayed in your throat for a good 20min after. Not one I could recommend.

Strong. Mouthfilling. Smokey. Complex

Kevin,
My favorite Islay to date. I once heard this one described as sticking your head in a bon fire fueled by driftwood on a Scottish beach as the salty sea spray is blowing up while someone is roasting marshmallows. Sounds a bit weird, but I am weird. This is a fantastic scotch to experience.

Hands down one of the best Whiskies in the world, top notch and best bang for buck.

The whisky is a great infusion of young islay from bourbon barrels and old islay aged in sherry barrels. The older years from 2008 are amazing. The newer releases are lacking but still worth the price. All in all a fine dram.
