The Ardbeg 10 year old is known to be one of the peatiest, smokiest, most complex single malt of them all. It is a whiskey that is not created in the conventional way of Whisky making. Most are chill-filtered and reduced to the strength of 40% ABV, however Ardbeg is not chill filtered and bottled at a strength of 46% ABV. When a Whisky is not chill-filtered, it contains more of the flavour from the peat and barley, making this one of the most flavourful Whiskies there is
The Ardbeg Uigeadail was named best whisky of the year because of its utter brilliant silkiness and complexity is on another level that other distilleries could only dream of. Named Uigeadail because it is where Ardbeg gets its water from and translates from Scottish Galic as "Dark and mysterious Place". The Uigeadail is married together from bourbon barrel to sherry cask giving a sweet and smoky finish to the malt.
