Ardbeg An OA

46.6% abv

The Mull of Oa is the most untamed part of Islay. Situated on the south west corner of the isalnd, the Mull of Oa cliffs tower over the Atlantic Ocean. It’s a place where storm meets calm. The jutting cliffs are battered by storms and Atlantic waves on one side, and shelter the souther coast of Islay on the other.
In Ardbeg An Oa the contrasts continue creating a whisky that is incredibly complex, yet singularly rounded, with 3 cask types married together.

Pedro Ximnez casks deliver sweetness
Virgin charred oak casks bring spiciness
Ex-bourbon casks in high proportion give an even more intense hallmark Ardbeg flavour profile.

These casks are brought together in the Gathering Room, newly-created at the distillery, in a specially designed gathering vat.
This results in a smoky, sweet and singularly rounded whisky; with all the power and intensity of Ardbeg wrapped in an alluring silkiness, at 46.6% and non chill-filtered.

The Ardbeg distillery lies on the South shore of Islay, close to the other 'Kildalton' distilleries (Lagavulin and Laphroaig). The name Ardbeg comes from the Gaelic word 'ad bheag' for small hill.

The malt is peated to an average of 55ppm at Port Ellen Maltings which gives the smoke, long fermentation times help to increase softness and impart fruity acidity. Both stills have quite a tall neck and are constricted just above the neck of the pot still. The lyne arm is also rising after the bend. All these factors result in a stable distillation with a lot of reflux which gives an oily, textural quality to the final product but also helps to refine the spirit.
