Ardbeg Uigeadail The Ultimate Islay Scotch
The Ardbeg Committee’s favourite whisky, Uigeadail is Gaelic for “a dark, mysterious place.” Named after the distillery’s water source, this whisky is a marriage of sweetness, spice and deep smokiness.
The peat-laden waters of Loch Uigeadail provide the smoky tones in this whisky, while maturation in ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks imparts rich, warm flavours – perfect for a dramatic, stormy night.
Extremely smoky peat, generations of whisky-making knowledge and water from this blend’s namesake, Loch Uigeadail, all play their part in creating this whisky. But the true secret behind Ardbeg Uigeadail’s success? A unique vatting method that marries the deep, smoky notes from ex-bourbon American oak with the luscious, raisin-like character of ex-sherry Oloroso casks.
