Ardbeg Uigeadail

70cl / 54.2%
  • Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
  • Distillery Bottling
A fine drop of Ardbeg bottled at cask strength. A marriage of Ardbeg from bourbon barrels and sherry butts 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.

    My favourite affordable Ardbeg. Deep and complex, smoky with the right amount of peat. Sweet notes are bitter enough to be extremely enjoyable (I'm not a fan of 'in your face' fruitiness). Typical for Ardbeg salt, iodine and burnt tyre notes are not dominant but compliment each other perfectly. I've long stopped counting all the bottles I've bought...

    A glorious whisky which fully deserves 5 stars. Huge flavours but beautifully rounded. Absolutly fantastic. In my opinion Ardbeg 10 is perhaps a purer expression of what the distillery is all about and has a little more potency in the finish, but this is still a sensational dram which belongs in any serious collection.

    An absolute blinder from Ardbeg, tried this in Edinburgh. Agree totally with producers tasting notes but, I found adding water removed a lot of the flavour, this is one to add to my cabinet for sure

    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.
