In 2017, Ardbeg introduces An Oa - our first new permanent expression in a decade. An Oa brings together the finest casks in a specially designed marrying vat, resulting in a whisky of complex contrasts: all the power and intensity of Ardbeg wrapped in an alluring silkiness, at 46.6% and non chill-filtered. It's an entirely new Ardbeg experience; Smoky. Sweet. Singularly rounded.
- AROMA: Rounded and subtly smoky, with creamy toffee, aniseed, treacle and dates. A curious suggestion of juicy fruits - peach and banana.
- TASTE: A smooth, creamy texture leads into a huge syrupy sweetness, with flavors of milk chocolate, treacle toffee, aniseed, orange and smoky tea leaves. Gentle, sweet spices of nutmeg and cinnamon, and soft cigar smoke.
- FINISH: Lingering, seductive, gentle yet intense.
