- 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."

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.
My Dad LOVES it!!! And he's joined the committee from the inserted card. Nice sense of humour from those guys, too!
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.Read more ›
