Ardbeg Uigadail is undoubtedly one of the world's great whiskies. Extraordinarily bold and complex, this Sherry cask matured Ardbeg has been bottled at an impressive 52.4%ABV for added body and intensity. Rich, sweet, Sherry cask influenced fruit combines beautifully with layer upon layer of smoke, tar, and soot from the heavily peated malt. Raisins, honey, chocolate, exotic spices, smoked fish, cured meats and a dash of oil slick!
Named after the distillery's unique water source, Ardbeg Uigeadail was named “World Whisky of the Year” by the Whisky Bible. "97.5 Points (Best Score Ever)
World Whisky of the Year/Liquid Gold Award.
From the utter silky brilliance of the delivery to the multi-layered middle, this simply oozes complexity, and on a level only a handful of distilleries in the world can even dream of reaching.
"Uigeadail consists of a marriage of younger whisky with much older whisky matured in sherry casks. The marriage works exceptionally well, with the younger whiskies providing the classic Ardbeg intensity many of us have come to expect, while the older whiskies contribute depth, maturity, and complexity. And bottling the whisky at cask-strength without chill-filtration ensures that none of the flavors are stripped out. This is an incredibly complex Islay whisky."
