2009 Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible ‘World Whisky of the Year’ Named for Ardbeg’s own loch, Uigeadail. Blended from both bourbon and sherry casks, including some older stock. The palate has smoke with notes of well-roasted meats, walnuts, pipe tobacco, and cloves. The finish is lengthy spicy, smoky and sweet balance. Voted by the 120,000+ strong Ardbeg Committee as their favourite Ardbeg.
