Ardbeg Uigeadail Islay Single Malt Scotch
Ardbeg Uigeadail Islay Single Malt Scotch
95 Points - Whisky Advocate (Vol. 13, #4) 
"With the Ardbeg 17 year old off the market, it's nice to see a new Ardbeg in the line-up. Uigeadail costs about the same as the Ardbeg 17 did but, with Uigeadail, you're getting a much more interesting whisky. Uigeadail consists of a marriage of younger whisky (from 1990 and 1993) 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, with its bonfire smoke, brine, and peppered olive notes balanced by a taming sweetness of vanilla, marshmallow, and toffee. Interwoven notes of candied fruit and sugared almonds round out the palate. Incredibly long finish."

97 Points - Whiskey Bible, 2008
"Nose (24) more complex, citrus-led and sophisticated than recent bottlings, though the peat is no less but now simply displayed in an even greater elegance; a beautiful sea salt strain to this; Taste (24) gentle oils carry on them a lemon-lime edge, sweetened by barley and a weak solution of golden syrup; the peat is omnipotent turning up in every crevice and wave, yet never once overstepping its boundary; Finish (24) stunningly clean, the oak offers not a bitter trace but rather a vanilla and butterscotch edge to the barley. Again the smoke wafts around in a manner unique in the world of whisky when it comes to sheer elan and adroitness; Balance (25) Like when you usually come across something that goes down so beautifully and with such a nimble touch and disarming allure, just close your eyes and enjoy..." -Jim Murray

Dave Broom "Nose - Spicy. Hot sawdust, fresh ginger, citrus zest. Crisp. With water fragrant oak, allspice, shortbread with sugar. Summery; Palate - Dried apricot, tingling. Slightly sweet with good balance in the mid-palate. Hint of menthol; Finish - Tingling ginger. Short but fresh; Comment - Good energy, balance with surprising weight." -Dave Broom, Whiskey Magazine
