Uigeadail—easy for the Scots to say!
We are big fans of Ardbeg, having tasted reviewed a number of its whiskies over the years. (See here.)
Uigeadail (roughly, “oog-a-dal”), which means “dark and mysterious place,” 54.2% alcohol by volume, or 108.4 proof. Nonetheless, we enjoyed it neat. It won the highest praise from Jim Murray, and his fellow whiskheady, Ralfy, too.
This is a marvelous whiskey, heavy with peat, and showing sherry flavor. It is well worth a taste, but novices beware—it has big flavor. Ardbeg Uigeadail sells for $55 to $75 a bottle. (Rating: Very Good)
