Dark… mysterious… Uigeadail!
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.
