WhiskyAdvocate: "Ardbeg is launching a new single malt as part of its permanent range, the first addition since it debutedCorryvreckan in 2009. Ardbeg An Oa (pronounced an-oh) is a combination of whiskies aged in different cask types, including Pedro Ximnez, virgin oak,and ex-bourbon barrels. The casks are married in Ardbegs new Gathering Vat, a large vat made of French oak, for three months before bottling. The whiskyis named for the Mull of Oa on Islay, a rocky promontory that is buffeted by Atlantic winds on its northern side while sheltering Ardbeg Cove to the south.An Oa joins three other single malts in Ardbegs permanent lineup: 10 year old, Uigeadail, and Corryvreckan.Ardbegs official tasting notes for An Oa come from Dr. Bill Lumsden, director of distilling, whisky creation and whisky stocks. He describes the whiskyas smoky, sweet, and rounded, with aromas of toffee, anise, dates, peaches, and banana, a creamy texture, and a syrupy-sweet palate. The flavors includemilk chocolate, orange, tea leaves, spices, cigar smoke, and, unusually, grilled artichokes with a lingering smoky finish." Aug 2017Ultimate Spirits Challenge: "Toasted butter, freshly popped corn, and grainy cornbread are playful on the nose. Spicy, woodsy androbust in the mouth, flavors of cornmeal and green peppercorn are invigorating. Cherry wood smoke lingers pleasantly in the mouth after each sip."2018Distillery: "In 2017, Ardbeg introduces An Oa our first new permanent expression in a decade. An Oa brings together the finestcasks in a specially designed marrying vat, resulting in a whisky of complex contrasts: all the power and intensity of Ardbeg wrapped in an alluring silkiness,at 46.6 percent and non chill-filtered. Its an entirely new Ardbeg experience; Smoky. Sweet. Singularly rounded.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." Bottle 750ml Alcohol 46,6 percent Region Islay, Scotland
