Ardbeg Uigeadail – Islay Single Malt Scotch Review

This one is pretty wild. I honestly think this one might be my favorite, mainly due to how bloody complex it is. Final score…

Finally I have a bottle of this in my home. Here goes!

  • Colour: Gold
  • Nose: Peat, old oranges (like when the skin begins to go brown), light wine, dried fruit, medicinal, toffee, rather complex overall.
  • Taste: Fiery with a heavy smoke, salty sweet, some seaweed, hint of those old oranges, leather.
  • Finish: Slow burn, some bitter wood, peat, subtle brine, very thick and dry (not a bad thing).

Ardberg, Overall

This one is pretty wild, I am sure I could add more to the above, but those are the most stand out bits I detected. I honestly think this one might be my favorite, mainly due to how bloody complex it is.

I find how dry it is to be somewhat odd, as it’s unlike anything I have ever experienced. At least I know what all the hype is about, it’s a great malt. I may not be able to locate any other Ardbeg releases locally, so I will enjoy the three I have (Ten, Galileo and Uigeadail).

Final Score – 95/100
