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. This elusive Scotch Whisky was named the Whisky of The Year 2009 by Jim Murray's Whisky Bible. The Uigeadail is named for the Loch from whence 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 flavour impact. Oo-Yeah.

Very spicy and tasty
MICHAEL
What a great smokey, sweet, flavorful taste. Smooth finish.
Mathew
Perfect balance! Full of flavor and follow through.
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
Perfectly smokey and smooth
James
Love it! Great balance for something so heavily peated!
Kegan
Excellent Islay, medium peat needs a dash of water. Plenty of oak and richness from the sherry. Really worth the price.
Cory
Favorite peaty, campfire in a glass at a great price.
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
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
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.
