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

Superb

My new favorite, highly recommend this one.

Liquid gold

Only recently got into Ardbeg and it has rapidly overtaken both Glenlivet and The Balvenie as my favourite distillery. I agree with the committee that this is the best of the core expressions. Light smoke on the nose with barbecued burnt brisket ends and treacle. A mind blowing maple syrup and smoked bacon note on the palate with some spice added in and a long finish of all of the above. Buy a bottle, I’d pour this stuff on my cornflakes if I could...

My current favorite

Still growing in my tastes but this one is so well integrated there’s nothing not to like. Each instrumen: salinity, peat, caramel all play in exquisite harmony. Encore

Smoke and sweetness in harmony

Balance is the key here - the peat smoke complimented and softened by crunchy demerera sugar. It's a great whisky and (maybe, just maybe) edges out Lagavulin 16y from the top spot for 'great, affordable scotch whisky'.

Simply the best

I'm yet to find a better whisky. Pure peng

It was a wee bit challenging for me - but that’s my opinion

It was a wee bit challenging for me - but that’s my opinion. I kind of struggled my way through it, don’t get me wrong I enjoyed it, but the sheer strength of the dram along with the Islay nose made it and uphill struggle.

Whisky without compromise.

A brooding, spicy, rich, oily whisky with a fantastical mix of deep flavours and a wonderfully smokey finish. Exceptional.

Burns, like a lighthouse!

It's a bit sharp for my taste, lighter alcohols are dominant; it burns like a younger scotch. Makes me think this is the head of something new blended into the tail of something old. I appreciate the smokey peaty maritime finish that earns the islay name. Overall a hearty sipper!

Beautiful

I've wanted to get into the whole single malt scene for a while, the only problem? I don't like whisky!
I like strong flavours but I'm a gulper when it comes to drinking and I've tried to slowly change that over the last couple of years and learn to 'enjoy' a drink as opposed to just having a drink.
I took my friends advice on savouring a small drop, breathing in the aromas, sipping it and taking my time.
My god, I'm in love!
Ardbeg Uigeadail has converted me.
