Ardbeg An Oa

Peated Single Malt — Islay, Scotland

5.0 out of 5 stars
What immediately comes to mind is soft intense peat. Sounds like a contradiction, but I think that’s the sign of a good complex whiskey. There’s so many interesting flavors that come together in a rounded out profile, yet it’s hard to keep track of everything going on. It’s thankfully lacking the bitter citrus notes I get from 10. Long finish that wraps it up in a nice little bow. I stay engaged and pick up nuances all the way to the end of each dram. Definitely a whiskey to ponder over. My favorite Ardbeg so far.

    Soft intense peat describes Ardbeg perfectly.
