A dark, mysterious place; or you can say Uigeadail [Oog-a-dal]. Fun to say and even more fun to drink. Made with some young and some very old oloroso sherry aged whisky then blended with Ardbeg 10 year. Bottled at cask strength.

Tasting Notes

"The sherry'd whisky used here provides some depth and sweetness to the dram, but doesn't over-saturate it in sticky fruits, nor is it one note. No, there is quite the big band on stage here. Coffee grounds, smoked toasted barley, prunes, tobacco leaves, sea salt, caramel; the sweetness is present, but isn't singing any louder than the rest of the band members."
