ARDBEG 'AN OA' ISLAY SINGLE MALT WHISKY
WHISKEY ADVOCATE'S TOP 10 2017: #6
What the Pros Say: Whiskey Advocate - 93 Points: "The addition of An Oa, matured in a combination of virgin oak, Pedro Ximénez sherry, and bourbon barrels, and married in a French oak ‘gathering vat’ prior to bottling, marks a reason to celebrate. An Oa is a more approachable Ardbeg. It lacks some of the typical oiliness, but flavor and complexity abound with hot peat, black tea, and peppery cloves. Die-hard Ardbeg fans should have no complaints, and new converts have a real treat in store."
