Description

The first addition to Ardbeg’s ongoing variety for a decade when presented in 2017, An Oa is a mix of spirit aged in Pedro-Ximenez sherry casks and bourbon barrels. Married in a French-oak marrying vat, this is rounded and smoky with notes of toffee, date, aniseed and banana.


Tasting Notes

Nose

Damp earth and leaves with softly building smokiness, lime peel, wine gums, limestone minerality, and sea spray freshness.

Pallete

Sweet smoke and chocolate, tarry notes. Rich sweetness wrapped with smoke. Gentle creaminess develops, with caffe, cocoa and icing sugar.

Finish

A burst of berry fruit disappears to reveal stony minerality, brine and a pinch of white pepper
