Ardbeg AN OA is the fourth release of Ardbeg whiskies, a smoky, sweet and uniquely rounded whisky.
Ardbeg An Oa is uniquely rounded, due in large part to the time it has spent in its newly created oak Gathering Vat, where whiskies from various cask types - including sweet Pedro Ximénez, spicy virgin charred oak and intense ex-bourbon casks, among others - become familiar with each other.
The result is a dram with a smoky potency, softened by a deliciously smooth sweetness.
Ardbeg's distinctive peat, dark chocolate and anise wrap around silky smooth caramel, black pepper and clove, before reaching an intense crescendo of flavour.
Unchill filtered and 46.6% ABV.
Color: Light Gold
Aroma: Rounded and smoky - like burning Applewood - with creamy toffee, aniseed, treacle and dates. A curious suggestion of juicy fruits, such as peach and banana. With a drop of water, reminders of Ardbeg’s classic fragrance – lime, pine resin, fennel, saddle soap and tar. A gentle waxiness, like fragrant candle wax, and hints of smoked herbs. An Oa gives a final subtle reminder of the sea with briny notes and seaweed but always accompanied with creaminess.
Taste: 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. Wood is always present in the spirit, gently nutty and reminiscent of a carpenter’s workshop. A long, sweet finish, with floral overtones, mint toffee and some gentle malty biscuit notes.
