Ardbeg Uigeadail

Ardbeg Uigeadail tasting

Ardbeg Uigeadail, pronounced “Oog-a-dal,” named after the loch from which it gets its water, is an Islay whisky with notes of treacle, bacon and bonfire.

What’s treacle, you ask? Good question! It’s the UK English word for molasses.

Disclaimer: I am Canadian and will be using the word “whiskey” but much love and respect for “whisky” lovers too! ❤️

My favourite spirit is an Islay whiskey (or whiskey). I love the peaty smell. I love the taste of campfire. I also love sweeter, richer flavours found in bourbon and Speyside malts. I love sharing my love of whiskey with people I know. I’ve heard people say it smells like campfire, and even rubber.

The Arbdeg Uigeadail label says it has notes of treacle (molasses), bacon, and bonfire. That’s not why I got it though.

I first tried Ardbeg 10-year about 6 years ago. It was delicious then, and still is now. I remember it being about $50 a bottle at that point. It has since doubled in price.

I first tried Ardbeg 10 year in early 2014 (or maybe even earlier)

Ardbeg is a strong, smokey, peaty scotch and I love it.
