Ardbeg Uigeadail was recently voted by the 80.000 strong Ardbeg Committee as their favourite Ardbeg. In 2009, Jim Murray's Whisky Bible named Ardbeg Uigeadail 'World Whisky of the Year' in praise of its outter silky brilliance and complexity on a level only a handful of distilleries in the world can even dream of reaching.
Ardbeg Uigeadail (pronounced OOog-a-dalO) is a special vatting that marries Ardbeg's traditional deep, smoky notes with luscious, raisiny tones of old ex-Sherry casks. It's non chill-filtered at high strength, which retains maximum flavour and gives more body and added depth.
Ardbeg is revered across the whisky world as The Ultimate Islay Malt. Ardbeg is the peatiest, smokiest yet most balanced of all the Islay malts. Ardbeg isn't a one dimensional peaty malt. Rather, Ardbeg balances smokiness with sweetness to provide a wider complexity of taste. Ardbeg's portfolio of whiskies is the most awarded of all the smoky malts - Ardbeg has won 51 gold, double gold or best in class medals since 2008.
"The palate is complex and rich, offering orange segments sprinkled with sea salt, dark chocolate, malt, and ever-present sweet peat. Nicely balanced. Lengthy in the finish, with smoky caramel." - Gavin Smith, Whisky Advocate
