Customer Rating
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.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by the Whisky Exchange

    Nose: Chocolate-covered caramel and barley sugar with smoky leather, raisins and linseed oil.

    Palate: Chewy and oily with rich fruit-cake sweetness leading to honey and barbecue smoke.

    Finish: Long, dry and sweet with honey and treacle.

  • Tasting Notes from the Producer

    Nose: Rich and weighty with heady and smoky aromatics. At full strength, the initial aroma is a beguiling mix of warm Christmas cake and walnut oil fused with fresh ocean spice, cedar and pine needles, followed by a smoky coal fire and a deep scent of well-oiled leather. The sweetness of treacle toffee and chocolate-coated raisins bring indulgence through the smoke. With water, the deep smokiness increases in intensity, reminiscent of Christmas pudding on fire; flowering currants and warm baked banana-and-walnut bread.

    Palate: 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.

    Finish: Amazingly long and chewy with lingering raisin, deep mocha tones and rich aromatic smoke into the perfectly integrated finish.

    Bought this for my husband who wanted Ardbeg for ages. He loves Lagavulin 16yo and from reading comments from others, I chose this one. He was over the moon with it and loves the deep peat flavour.

    Perfect. Oily, smoky, balanced, complex. Finish is long and satisfying. The best whisky you can get for the price.

    Really very good. Smoky, peaty, slightly sweet - the flavours develop and take on different forms from the smell to the aftertaste.

    If you can stand an Islay scotch that has any hint of sherry, then you may very well like this drink. I'll stick with Lagavulin.

    Oh my word, this is a special whisky. The tasting notes above pretty much cover the specifics, but what impresses me the most is the sheer depth and complexity of each flavour, and the gradual order at which they come to you. Sitting with a glass of this is akin to reading a good book with your tongue; don't bother having any distractions other than perhaps a log fire or a nice view. The only whisky I've had which has surpassed this clocked in at four times the price. Sublime.
