A new release for 2017, An Oa is the first new addition to ArdbegÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s permanent range in eight years.
Pronounced Ã¢â‚¬Ëœan ohÃ¢â‚¬â„¢, this expression has been matured in a number of casks types Ã¢â‚¬â€œ including Pedro Ximenez sherry, ex-bourbon and virgin oak Ã¢â‚¬â€œ before they are married together in the distilleryÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Ã¢â‚¬ËœGathering VatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢, which is made out of French Oak.
The result expression hold all of ArdbegÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s trademark ash smoke and sweet notes with a slightly gentler, smoother touch than its stablemates.
A worthy addition to the canon of the famous Islay distillery.
