Ardbeg An Oa, Single Malt Whisky, 70cl.
Ardbeg An Oa, Single Malt Whisky, 70cl. Ardbeg's newest core range bottling in the ultimate range, the 1st for nearly a decade as of 2017 - the An Oa.
A well balanced Ardbeg matured sweet Pedro Ximenez; spicy virgin charred oak; and intense ex-bourbon casks.
Named after the Mull of Oa located to the south west of the island of Islay.
This is a slightly more mellow fellow compared to some of its big brothers like Uigeadail
or Corryvreckan yet has still all the top qualities of the Ardbeg we know and love.
Nose: Rounded and smoky - like burning Apple-wood - with creamy toffee, aniseed, treacle and dates.
Palate: Favours of milk chocolate, treacle toffee, aniseed, orange and smoky tea leaves. Gentle, sweet spices (nutmeg & cinnamon), some cigar smoke.
Finish: Lingering, seductive, gentle yet intense, with flavours of aniseed, hickory and distant subtle smoke
