Ardbeg Uigeadail 70cl 54.2%
This whisky takes its name from the source of Ardbeg’s water and was voted by Jim Murray as his ‘World Whisky of the Year’ in 2009. Non chill-filtered. massive flavour with trademark Ardbeg characteristices: tarry, rich and peaty. However behind the big notes are some more subtle flavours. Sweet yet earthy, citrus notes but also sea, sand and seaweed finished with dark chocolate. I believe the waves crashing against the side of the warehouse adds to the flavour of the whisky as the walls, casks and whisky absorb the salt deposits.
