  • Full-flavoured and rich with a deep mouth-coating texture, the taste is an intriguing balance between sweet, spicy and deep smoky flavours. The flavour is initially sweet as Christmas cake begins to soak into the tongue. A burst of winter spices sets off a smoky-spicy explosion countered by a sumptuous mid-palate of honey glazed smoked food and chewy treacle. Waves of deep smoky tones and rich aromas build up on the palate like a fine Montecristo cigar.
  • With water, the deep smokiness increases in intensity, reminiscent of a Christmas pudding on fire. Tarry smoke and diesel engine oil enter the room bringing smells of an age gone by. Rich flowering currants and warm baked banana and walnut bread are served with simmering mocha espresso.
  • High in the hills above Ardbeg is the brooding, mysterious Loch Uigeadail (pronounced 'Oog-a-dal'). This is the loch that supplies Ardbeg's peat-laden water supply, and gives its name to this widely acclaimed expression. This is a special vatting of different styles of Ardbeg, marrying together its traditional deep, smoky notes the luscious, sweet, raisiny tones of old ex-Sherry casks. Ardbeg Uigeadail is non chill-filtered at high strength which retains maximum flavour and gives more body and added depth - as good as straight from the cask. In 2009, Jim Murray's Whisky Bible named 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."

TasteTasting Notes:

Nose: Quite simple: perfect. The smoke is dry, something akin to the ash from a cold peat fire; there are hints, though no more, of fruit, possibly sherry. There are hints, though no more, of slightly overdone roasted potato. There are hints, though no more, of coffee-stained old Demerara rum. There are hints, though no more, of sweet grist falling from the mill.

Palate: From the utter silky brilliance of the delivery to the multi-layered middle this simply oozes complexity, and on a level only a handful of distilleries in the world can ever dream of reaching; a molecule or two of over enthusiastic oak takes this away from a full mark, but I am being harsh; the fruit and barley are in an embrace that only the purest of lovers would know....

Finish: Some serious caramel from the cask, and a fruity follow through, perhaps robs the whisky of some of its intricate notes, but again Iam being ultra picky. An unusual oiliness for Ardbeg, though only slight, helps further the finale and encourages some mocha to develop.

Ardbeg plus sherry.

I love this more and more each time I drink some. Smells of peat, sugar, smoke and, maybe, coffee. Tastes sweet and then there's a numbing of the mouth as the peat smoke takes hold and a dry smoke literally hits the throat and then nose. The finish goes on for ages, your mouth is still tingling 30 minutes later.

Utterly brilliant.

I'd read about this whisky for a long time and kept putting off trying it, thinking I'd be disappointed after all the hype. How wrong I was, this is the stuff of legend, an absolutely outstanding whisky which completely blew my mind away. Fantastic stuff. you have to try it!

I'd read about this whisky in several books and in every case it was hailed as the new Jerusalem. To be honest it is way out of my normal price range but a friend owed me a big favour and offered to buy me a bottle of my choosing, so I pushed my luck and wrote it down so she wouldn't send any old whisky. A few days later the postman arrived with the golden glow. On my first taste my mouth felt like a grenade had gone off: wow! The hit is so powerful I just had to thin it down a tad to tame it. keep it well out of the way of your friends or become a hermit. Great nightcap or after dinner tipple. It's a big whiskey and fully deserves all the great reviews.

Wow this is the King of peat laden whiskey. Between me & my friends this type of whiskey is like marmite love or hate & not much margin in between. For me it is the holy grail I have been searching for the strongest peat flavour for years & now found it. Please don't let this put you off it is also incredibly smooth has immense depth & an exceptionally long finish which means this is truly the whiskey to savour. I am now in the process of trying the other Ardbeg offerings & if they are half as good I will be pleased.

It is not hyperbole to describe Ardbeg Uigeadail as a contender for the best whisky commercially available today.
At over £50 a bottle it is not cheap compared to some, but the product is truly outstanding making it worth the stretch.
There are no compromises with Uigeadail, non-chill filtered, high strength, no colouring, well crafted, the list goes on.
The reputation of Uigeadail may at first glance seem like a bandwagon, the old adage that popular means fashionable but ultimately low quality mass marketing at work.
Ardbeg have here that very rarest of modern product, one that fully lives up to the expectation it's own reputation sets.
People who know their whisky have pushed Uigeadail into the limelight with their justified praise for it.
What makes Uigeadail so special though, is that you do not have to be one of these experts to appreciate what it has to offer.
It is an uncompromising no holds barred beast of a thing yet perfectly balanced, no one trait, be it the smoke, the peat, the sweetness, the bitterness, or any of the many other complex subtleties within this fine spirit in any way overpowers the others. It may seem when first approached a little like 'Spinal Tap' in a glass with everything turned up to eleven, however, the balance of all that power is what gives Uigeadail it's well earned rep.
Uigeadail is a true classic, it's popularity with the connoisseurs let's you know that this ain't no easy going mixer, but for those looking for a true high quality whisky experience all you need is good taste and a glass of Ardbeg Uigeadail. Kick back and enjoy, for once the connoisseurs and the mass market agree. The only thing rarer than that is me agreeing with either of them.
