Ardbeg is the peatiest, smokiest yet most balanced of all the Islay malts, balancing smokiness with sweetness to provide a wider complexity of taste
Pronounced oog-a-dal, Uigeadail is gaelic for a dark, mysterious place; named after the distillery’s water source, this whisky is a marriage of sweetness, spice and deep smokiness
