Islay Peated Single Malt — Ardbeg An Oa
Many people believe that to really get your peat on, you need to reach for a Bruichladdich product. We disagree as the real kings of smoky islay whiskies is Ardbeg. One of its newest products is also one of its smokiest. An Oa is a much rounder smoky whisky than Ardbeg 10 though. If we have one word for Ardbeg ten it’s raw. An Oa is smokier than ten but at the same time there’s an added sweetness from aging in Pedro ximenez casks. It has more smoked tea notes some dried fruits but also spicy notes and a lot of salinity. So there are other flavors in there to compliment and round out the big smoke.
