描述

Ardbeg Ten Years Old is revered around the world as the peatiest, smokiest, most complex single malt of them all. Yet it does not flaunt the peat; rather it gives way to the natural sweetness of the malt to produce a whisky of perfect balance. Named World Whisky of the Year in 2008.

An Oa is named after the Mull of Oa in the south west of Islay, which offers the Kildaton coast (where Ardbeg distillery is situated) some protection from the worst the Atlantic has to offer! As such, An Oa is intended to show a more approachable side to Ardbeg single malt that’s as rounded as the Oa peninsular, without losing the characteristic distillery style. In the summer of 2017 this became the first addition to Ardbeg’s core range in over a decade.

Maturation took place in a combination of casks including Pedro Ximénez, charred virgin oak and ex-bourbon, which were all brought together to marry in Dr. Bill Lumsden’s new ‘Gathering Vat’!

Nose: This sweet, creamy Ardbeg offers notes of butterscotch, fennel seed, tobacco leaf, Honey Nut Clusters and hints of mixed boiled sweets (fruit, Everton mint and menthol). The citrus notes are subtle and rich, coming through as flourless orange cake.

Palate: Still plenty of peaty oomph, although perhaps lighter in body. Notes of cigars and golden syrup flapjacks with sweet black tea on the tail and hints of chocolate limes.

Finish: Smoky treacle lingers with a little peanut brittle.

以「品質最佳的艾雷島麥芽威士忌」為傲的雅柏酒廠,於1815年創立時即受到世界各地行家的欣賞,因為我們以艾雷島麥芽呈現出具泥煤和煙燻等最佳且最繁複美味。雅柏單一麥芽威士忌在所有艾雷島的麥芽威士忌中,口感最細緻且豐富,其特點並不在於泥煤味的強度,而是以麥芽為主,讓麥芽甜味淡淡透出,所創造出的完美平衡口感。雅柏曾連續三年獲選吉姆莫瑞(Jim Murray)威士忌聖經(Whisky Bible)「全球年度威士忌」殊榮。
自波本桶和雪莉桶釀造而出。

使用了三種不同的橡木桶(包括新燒制的橡木桶,PX雪莉橡木以及波本威士忌橡木桶)進行長時間的熟化,酒液充分吸收了三種橡木桶中的精華,酒體非常的飽滿,口感圓潤。
含有太妃糖,八角,香蕉集桃子果香,帶有柑橘,巧克力及蜂蜜的甜味,尾韻帶有持久的八角,山胡桃木餘韻。AN OA是以艾雷島上的The Oa半島來名命,它位於Port Ellen的西面。
一如Ardbeg慣常的風格,這支酒是不帶年份(NAS)的作品,以46.8%酒精度裝樽,而且沒有用上冷凝裝樽。
AN OA是一支混桶作品,它分別以全新烤過的橡木桶(處女桶)、PX雪莉酒桶及first fill波本桶陳釀的原酒調配而成。
這三種桶款都是極為吸引,而且Ardbeg過往也極少提及以以上三種酒桶陳釀的作品,雖然AN OA不是一支single cask/ cask strength,但AN OA這樣的混桶設定相信已令一眾Ardbeg迷都捺不住想一試。
