This Scotch is deep gold in color. It is rich and weighty with heady and smoky aromatics. It is full flavored and rich with a deep mouth-coating texture, the taste is an intriguing balance between sweet, spicy and deep smoky flavors. 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.
Uigeadail - pronounced 'Oog-a-dal' - takes its name from the loch on Islay that has supplied water to Ardbeg distillery for centuries. This premium expression has been created from specially selected casks from 1990, 1993 plus much older, sherry cask-matured Ardbeg. The resulting malt is true to the 'house style' but with an additional luscious richness.
