In 2009, Jim Murray's 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 is a special vatting that marries Ardbeg's traditional deep, smoky notes with luscious, raisiny tones of old ex-Sherry casks. Recently voted by the 80,000 strong Ardbeg Committee as their favourite Ardbeg. With whisky this good, who can blame them?
Rich and weighty with heady and smoky aromatics, this expression of Ardbeg is both intensely flavored and perfectly integrated. At full strength, the initial aroma is a beguiling mix of warm Christmas cake, walnut oil and parma violets fused with fresh ocean spice, cedar and pine needles. Full-flavored and rich with a deep mouth-coating texture, the taste is an intriguing balance between sweet, spicy and deep smoky flavors.
