Tasting Notes
Smell / Nose
The undiluted nose is deep and rounded – chocolate caramels and barley sugar combine with dates, raisins and smooth sherry notes. Later, you find leather and linseed oil.  Add a few drops of water and the sweetness gives way to malted honeycomb, with flowering currants emerging through the smoky sweetness of a well-fired fruit pudding.
 
Taste / Palate
Sweet, chewy and oily with a silky mouthfeel. The flavour is initially sweet, revealing fruit cake and treacle. This is followed by barbecued or honey roast food with the slightest hint of olives.
 
Finish
Again long, both sweet and dry with honey, treacle and a trace of lint.
Out of stock Oooops.
This bottle isn't on our current list of Home Bar Essentials... but it could be. Add it to your wish list and let us know you want it!
The distillery itself dates back to the final years of the eighteenth century; it even closed for a short period of time in the 80s. The site's water source, Loch Uigeadail, is superb and has the honour of having a Whisky named after it.

A fine drop of Ardbeg bottled at cask strength. A marriage of Ardbeg from bourbon barrel and sherry butt which gives a sweet and smokey finish to this malt. Uigeadail is the loch from which all Ardbeg water flows. An absolutely stunning Whisky and following the demise of the Airigh nam Beist this probably represents the best value in the core range.

Chris
A true gem of an Islay. This isn't a "punch you in the face" smoke like most Islays, but has depths of character that can easily be revealed especially when paired with a cigar.

One of the best drops I've ever tasted.
Zak
When it comes to Islay, it's easy to get lost in the smoke. This is one of the finer examples of full flavor propelled forward from the afterburn of the kiln.
