Ardbeg Uigeadail Bottling Note

This stunning expression from Islay's Ardbeg distillery on the Kildalton Coast is named after a nearby loch (pronounced "Oog-a-dal"). It's the perfect example of how sweet and savoury notes can work together spectacularly - you'll find Ardbeg's maritime salinity intact here, combined with dried fruit notes imparted by time spent in sherry casks. Kind of like when you mix sweet popcorn and salty popcorn together, it results in something absolutely wonderful.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Multifaceted, notes of peat and little flourishes of dark sugar, freshly ground espresso beans, cereal notes and a most sophisticated tar.

Palate: Led by sweet, ripe fruit and black forest honey. A good helping of malt. The throne then usurped by a powerful peat and smoked barley.

Finish: Very long, caramel and malt weave their way through peat smoke and dark sugar and just a hint of fresh espresso coffee before it finally peters out.

Overall: Such deft balance! How wonderful to sample Ardbeg so beautifully complimented by sherry.

Ardbeg Uigeadail Reviews

Very very nice, but not. Quite. Perfect.

This is already an established classic. I have very little to add except that while I like it very much, it is not.. quite... complete.
Few whiskies have the oomph that this has. It is impressive. And it's by no means a one-dimensional, thin dram. There's a lot to enjoy. Peat certainly, but you can taste the barley, the sea and even some sweetness.
But this.... focus rather deprives the whole palate. Lately I've been concentrating as much on which parts of my mouth the taste is found as on which tastes there are. This dram is satisfying because it is straight down the middle, but it is less open, less airy and relaxed than I would like.
I will update after the bottle has breathed for a few days.

The wonderful epitome of weird

When they changed the recipe 10 years ago, and ruined Ardbeg 10, I mourned, as they just killed my favourite whisky.
Then I found this....and rejoiced. It's everything Ardbeg should be. Tar, phenols, smoke, iodine.
This is rich, pungent, strong, take no prisoners whisky. It's not really like other Islays. It's it's own bag of weird, and I absolutely love it.

Great for peeling paint off a wall.

When I opened my one and only bottle, I couldn’t decide whether I smelled road tar or a skunk. Barely made it through the bottle and had a hard time foisting it on my friends. Also kept it away from an open flame. Sorry, but never bought another one.

The best of the Ardbegs

Wonderful wonderful stuff. Having tried so many of the Ardbeg limited releases but I always go back to this as my favourite

The finish is the stage out, lip smacking and makes you crave more. Beautifully complex layers throughout

Awesome Islay

Just the best Islay style whisky on the planet for me, complex Smokey with loads of layers of flavour. The intensity at times almost too much then another flavour bursts through, a true taste journey, a real treat.

Wonderful peaty complex malts

Only bettered by Corryvrekan

An essential ardbeg

A fantastic expression. Smoother and sweeter than ardbeg 10. It has all the best qualities of complex whiskeys; sweet, meaty, smokey and a hint of brine. An absolute must for any whisky drinker.

My Favourite Scotch!

This is currently my favourite whiskey! Beautiful bold flavours, smells like christmas aromatics perfume and a oakwood fireplace. Long lingering and chewy flavours that because a warm smokey sweetness in your mouth. I can confidently say this beats out the balvenie 17, Hibiki and McCallan 12 and with that being said this is great value for the price point. Best enjoyed on its own (the strong flavours may not react well with food) sipping 5ml at a time whilst relaxing.
