With a deep colour that hints at extraordinary depths, Ardbeg Scotch Single Malt Uigeadail (pronounced Oog-a-dal) has an explosive smell of phenol and antiseptic smoke. That not only hits you on the nose but explodes on the palate as you sip it neat. It's a special vatting that marries Ardbeg's traditional deep, smoky notes with luscious, raisiny tones of old ex-Sherry casks.

Ardbeg Uigeadail is the result of the unique marriage of Ardbeg's richly peated, wild rocky seas island character with luscious, raisin-like flavours found in ex-Sherry casks. This complex malt poses an intriguing challenge for even the most discerning whisky drinker with its deep, smoky flavours.

COLOR
Deepest Gold

AROMA
Rich and weighty with heady and smoky aromatics. 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 falling from the Christmas tree. A smouldering coal fire and the scent of well-oiled leather brings warmth. The sweetness of treacle toffees and chocolate-coated raisins emerge through the smoke. With water, the deep smokiness increases in intensity, reminiscent of a fired Christmas pudding. Rich flowering currants and warm baked banana and walnut bread are served with simmering mocha espresso.

TASTE
Full flavoured and rich with a deep mouth-coating texture, the taste is an intriguing balance between sweet, spicy and deep smoky flavours. The flavour is initially sweet. A burst of winter spices sets off a smoky-spicy explosion countered by a sumptuous mid-palate of honey glazed smoked food and chewy treacle. Waves of deep smoky tones and rich aromas build up on the palate like a fine Montecristo cigar.

FINISH
Amazingly long and chewy with lingering raisiny, deep mocha tones and rich aromatic smoke into the perfectly integrated finish.
