Named after the Mull of Oa, the untamed southwest tip of the whisky isle of Islay, where Ardbeg distillery is based, An Oa marries three differently matured whiskies (Pedro Ximinez, Virgin Oak and ex-bourbon cask matured) into a single gathering vat, creating a smoky, sweet and singularly rounded whisky.
Ardbeg An Oa 70cl
Aroma: Applewood smoke, toffee, aniseed, dates and fresh juicy fruits
Palate: A smooth, creamy texture leads into a huge syrupy sweetness, flavours of milk chocolate, treacle toffee, aniseed, orange and smoky tea leaves. Gentle, sweet spices (nutmeg & cinnamon), some cigar smoke, and a very unusual flavour of grilled artichokes. Long and sweet, with floral overtones, mint toffee and some gentle malty, biscuit notes.
