Customer Rating

A fine drop of Ardbeg bottled at cask strength. A marriage of Ardbeg from bourbon barrel and sherry butt which gives a sweet and smoky finish to this malt. Uigeadail is the loch from which all Ardbeg water flows. An absolutely stunning whisky, and following the demise of Airigh nam Beist, this probably represents the best value in the core range.

Ardbeg Uigeadail Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Nose: The undiluted nose is deep and rounded – chocolate caramels and barley sugar combine with dates, raisins and smooth sherry notes. Later, you find leather and linseed oil.

    With water the sweetness gives way to malted honeycomb, with flowering currants emerging through the smoky sweetness of a well-fired fruit pudding.

    Taste: Sweet, chewy and oily with a silky mouthfeel. The flavour is initially sweet, revealing fruit cake and treacle. This is followed by barbecued or honey roast food with the slightest hint of olives.

    Finish: Again long, both sweet and dry with honey, treacle and a trace of lint.

    10 out of 10. A favourite whisky. I love its dirty salty sweetness.

    A very complex Islay offering that fills the nose and challenges the palate. Well done Ardbeg!

    Excellent scotch. Very well balanced and amazingly smooth for such a high alcohol content product.

    I''ve tried many whisky like Lagavulin, Laphroaig, Bowmore, Benriach, Talisker. This one is just perfect. You must try it.

    I have tried Lagavulin and laphroaig they were a stronger smokey taste, however this Ardbeg nectar is to me the best dram i have ever tried to date its opened up with a little cold water to give the most amasing taste.

    My favourite Islay whisky so far. Similar in smokiness to the ardbeg 10, but slightly sweeter and more complex. Fantastic whisky!

    I'm a big fan of Lagavulin and Bruichladdich Port Charlotte, but I guess I just have a differing palatte from everyone else. I was not a fan of this, and I usually like peaty whiskeys. I haven't tried the Corryvracken yet, but Uigeadail just didn't float my boat.

    Can still taste this whisky the day after,powerfull,sweet,smokey,smells like hotdog sausages when the glass is empty,very good dram peat fans will love this

    I honestly think this is the best whisky I have ever tasted. It needs a little bit of water to open it up and reduce the dominant alcohol impact. With water the sweetness hits first, then smoke and peat with a malty and fruity taste charging through, It is robust, it is smokey and heavily peated and it is fantastic. Best ever.......get some (-:
