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.

Charles,
It's Whiskies like this when age statements, chilfiltration and natural color are irrelevant.....a masterclass.
 
guest
guest,
Love it! Big kick ass flavours of peat and moss, just keeps on going and the intensity doesn’t stop.
 
Tim
Tim,
Holy (peat) smokes! Ardbeg has the peatiest malt in the biz, and they have their own water source in Loch Uigeadail. All of this gives the scotch an extremely unique taste - deep, full, sweet but not overly so. Very complex taste that opens up with a touch of water. This whisky will warm you up in the wintertime - have a dram while sitting next to the fire after a day in the snow.
 
Randi
Randi,
This is a most beautiful class of whiskey in my opinion sweet with a slight cherry after taste. I am buying it again
 
Chris
Chris,
My personal favorite, there is so much going on with this flavor wise it's a must try and experience it. The aroma is amazing keeps calling you back for more.
 
Bill
Bill,
Very nice - sweet peaty and smoky - a good relaxing sipper!
 
Michael
Michael,
My favorite Ardbeg. The Christmas-cake taste is my favorite part. I think of this as "sweet meets peat" at its finest. It also has a nice, oily and viscous mouthfeel that goes great with the flavor.
 
Dominik
Dominik,
A must have for all Ardbeg lovers! Smokey as always and a lovely cheery sweetness on top!
 
Chris
Chris,
This is probably my favorite as of now there is so much going on hard everyone will experience it differently and that's the best part

My favorite!
 
Seth
Seth,
Lots of peat smoke and then layers of sea salt caramel, leather and seaweed it’s a flavor bomb!
 
Thomas
Thomas,
As someone who drinks a lot of scotch it took me a while to warm up to the Islay offerings. I don't know what it is about the peat but it's intoxicating. You feel like you've just eaten a big mouthful of smoky moss and found yourself craving more. This is a delicious whisky. Smoky, earthy, spicy and smooth!
 
Doug
Doug,
Nice amount of peat and a reasonable amount of body. Not as oily as an Oban, but a a nice dram to sip neat.
 
Mike
Mike,
Big peat as expected, but smooth bordering on creamy, and a nice warm vanilla.
 
Joshua
Joshua,
Insanely rich and deep. Drag a log out of a swamp, set it on fire, and then lick it....thats pretty close to what this tastes like...but in a GOOD WAY!! Petey to the maximum, touch of sweet and pepper.
 
James
James,
Very peaty, VERY. But, it's wonderful!
 
Tracy
Tracy,
Superb dram
 
Lou
Lou,
Delicious! Such a rich and savory peaty/smokey nose and taste with a decadently long finish. Definitely a hero whiskey that commands attention
 
Andre
Andre,
Love it. Very peaty.
 
Jim
Jim,
This is the category that inspired Son of a Peat, at least that's my take on it. A very robust sipper with so much peat and smoke if you swirl the bottle you can see the peat and smoke twirling around in a dance that says "I dare you!"
 
Dustin
Dustin,
This one is for peat lovers,I loved it! When I have someone taste it that never has had this type,watching the reaction is great,one person actually salivates when we talk about it!
 
Nikhil
Nikhil,
My first dive into serious single malt, and it was quite the challenging choice. Somehow though, it was exactly what I needed. Such complexity of character, completely blew me away. Smokey, oily, sweet tempered by characterful heat. Amazing.
 
Jeremy
Jeremy,
A-maz-ing! Perfectly peated. Smooth smoky and sweet finish.
 
Miguel
Miguel,
This is my favorite by far, love the balance of flavors, I really like Laphroigs Medicinal tones, but some days I just to want to harp it down a bit, and the Uigeadail does the job. Rightfully balanced with the Ardberg smoke in your face.
 
Sebastian
Sebastian,
Einer meiner absoluten Lieblinge
 
Chris
Chris,
My favorite widely available scotch. Amazing complexity with some beautiful peat. Strong, take no prisoners. Keeps me coming back.
 
Gregory
Gregory,
An awesome Scotch. All it needs is a few drops of water.
 
Aryan
Aryan,
Opens nicely with a few drops of water. Even neat, there’s a hint of sweetness that makes it last way through the peat. A well balanced scotch. Recommended.
 
Alon
Alon,
One of the peatiest and more complex scotches I own. Lots of smoke and peat, but also lots of nutty and spicy flavor, with a nice aftertaste that lingers. For peat lovers, this is a must.
 
Ryo
Ryo,
I felt a very wild peaty flavour. Super like it as I am a peat lover
 
BRANDON
BRANDON,
My first foray into Islay single malts and I love it. The flavor is a great mix of spiciness, sweetness, and peat/smoke.
 
CJ
CJ,
Strong spicy to the taste with a good pine smell to start with.
 
Daniel
Daniel,
One of my other favorites. This Ardbeg is delicious and smooth.

Fantastic mix of the smoke and peat Ardbeg is known for with a complex sweet finish.

Really growing on me. Smoky, spicy, tasty.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Peaty, but totally doable. Don't mix. Don't add ice. Just raw dog this shit. Just like my ladies.
 
Kim
Kim,
Not an Islay fan, but with a bit of water this one really shines. Best Islay I’ve ever tried!
 
Patrick
Patrick,
Perfect Islay.
 
guest

Peaty, Salty, strong and un the finish a lot of sweetness. A perfect Islay Dram after a hard working day.
 
guest
guest,
Can appreciate it has good flavours but hits me way too hard. Interesting flavours once I've added some water, but still not a fave.
 
Harrison
Harrison,
Top 3 fav scotches. Smoke, leather, charcoal, with a long smooth finish
 
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.
 
guest
guest,
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.
 
David
David,
Very smooth and a great finish
 
guest

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

not good
 
Overt
Overt,
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
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.

What a great smokey, sweet, flavorful taste. Smooth finish.

Perfect balance! Full of flavor and follow through.
 
David
David,
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.
 
David
David,
Perfectly smokey and smooth
 
James
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.

Very nice scotch.
 
Maurizio
Maurizio,
Strong. Mouthfilling. Smokey. Complex
 
Kevin
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.
 
guest
guest,
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.
