Tasting Notes: By Tasos Protopapas

 

Nose: The acrid smell of Peat smoke is strong and vigorous and is combined by medicinical notes and iodine. Then follows aromas of burning coals, salted fish, and grated ginger with surprising sweeter notes of Toasted sugared pecans and Zante currants at the end.

Palate: Rich and full body. Fruit salad and sherry first. Next sweet taste of caramel in the centre, with notes of Tabasco sauce, Peat Smoke and Ash at the end.

Finish: Intense, Very Long, Peaty and Pungent.

This dram is a living legend.

Producer's Informations

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 (pronounced 'Oog-a-dal') is a special vatting that marries Ardbeg's traditional deep, smoky notes with luscious, raisiny tones of old ex-Sherry casks. It's non chill-filtered at high strength, which retains maximum flavour and gives more body and added depth.
