Ardbeg An Oa, Single Malt Whisky, 70cl.
Ardbeg's latest 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 sherry casks 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, burning apple-wood with creamy toffee, aniseed and dates.
Palate: Milk chocolate, orange, sweet spices, cigar smoke and smoky tea leaves.
Finish: Lingering, seductive with aniseed, hickory and subtle smoke.
