AROMA: Warm Christmas cake, walnut oil and parma violets fused with fresh ocean spice, cedar and pine needles; followed by well-oiled leather, and then sweetness of treacle toffees and chocolate-coated raisins emerge through the smoke
TASTE: Full flavoured and rich with a deep mouth-coating texture, initially sweet with a burst of winter spices, smokiness; mid-palate brings honey glazed smoked food and chewy treacle, Montecristo cigar smoke
FINISH: Amazingly long finish with lingering raisiny, deep mocha tones and rich aromatic smoke notes
INFO: Pronounced ‘Oog-a-dal’, it’s a special vatting that marries Ardbeg’s traditional deep, smoky notes with luscious, raisiny tones of old ex-Sherry casks. Ardbeg Uigeadail was voted by the 120,000+ strong Ardbeg Committee as their favourite Ardbeg.
