In 2017, Ardberg 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 Ardberg wrapped in an alluring silkiness, at 46.6% and non chill-filtered. It’s an entirely new Ardberg experience; Smoky. Sweet. Singularly rounded. Rounded and subtly smoky, with creamy toffee, aniseed, treacle and dates. A curious suggestions of juicy fruits - peach and banana. 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. Lingering, seductive, gentle yet intense.
