An Oa is the first addition to the Ardbeg core range in over a decade, this release has been matured in a combination of casks including Pedro Ximénez, charred virgin oak and ex-bourbon, which were all married together to create this beautiful Islay malt.
Named after the Mull of Oa, to the south west of Islay which offers the distillery some protection from the worst of the weather blowing in from the Atlantic – An Oa shows the softer side of Ardbeg while still staying true to the well known and loved characteristics that we have all come to know and expect from this distillery.
Nose - Sweet and creamy, butterscotch, tobacco leaf, honey, nuts and a subtle touch of citrus.
Palate - Smooth with obvious peat and waves of syrupy sweet chocolate.
Finish - Nutty and lingering with a smoky sweet finish.
