Ardbeg An Oa Single Malt Whisky
Ardbeg An Oa is named after the Mull of Oa in the south west of Islay on the Kildaton coast (where Ardbeg distillery is situated), and is intended to show a more approachable side to Ardbeg single malt that's as rounded as the Oa peninsular, without losing the characteristic distillery style.
Maturation took place in a combination of casks including Pedro Ximénez, charred virgin oak and ex-bourbon, married in a French-oak. The result is a dram with smoky power, mellowed by a delectable, smooth sweetness. Hallmark Ardbeg peat, dark chocolate and aniseed are wrapped in smooth, silky butterscotch, black pepper and clove, before rising to an intense crescendo of flavour.
Non chill-filtered with a strength of 46.6% ABV.
