Named ‘World Whisky of the Year’ in Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible 2009. Ardbeg Uigeadail takes its name from the mysterious loch which supplies the peat-laden water used to make Ardbeg. • 54.2% ABV • non chill-filtered • 70cl
Multifaceted, notes of peat and little flourishes of dark sugar, freshly ground espresso beans, cereal notes and a most sophisticated tar.
Led by sweet, ripe fruit and black forest honey. A good helping of malt. The throne then usurped by a powerful peat and smoked barley.
Amazingly long and chewy with lingering raisiny, deep mocha tones and rich aromatic smoke
In 2009, Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible named Ardbeg Uigeadail ‘World Whisky of the Year’ – in praise of its “utter silky brilliance” and “complexity on a level only a handful of distilleries in the world can even dream of reaching.”
Ardbeg Uigeadail (pronounced ‘Oog-a-dal’) is a special vatting that marries Ardbeg’s traditional deep, smoky notes with luscious, raisiny tones of old ex-Sherry casks. It’s non chill-filtered at high strength, which retains maximum flavour and gives more body and added depth.
