n 2009, Jim Murrays Whisky Bible named Ardbeg Uigeadail World Whisky of the Year in praise of its utter silky brilliance and complexity on a level only a handful of distilleries in the world can even dream of reaching.
Ardbeg Uigeadail (pronounced Oog-a-dal) is a special vatting that marries Ardbegs 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 Uigeadail was recently voted by the 100,000 strong Ardbeg Committee as their favourite Ardbeg. With whisky this good, who can blame them?
Ardbeg, I don't know how you can sustain such a quality spirit without compromising the nose, taste, and finish. This truly amazes me. Superb whisky.
Wow. Nose - refreshing. Taste - Invigorating. Finish - Unforgettable.
This is, for me, ABSOLUTELY the best whisky!
Every time I buy a bottle of Uigeadail I ask myself why I drink anything else. It has everything… plenty of power, always puts a smile on my face."
