Packaging: In original box
Volume on Label: 70cl

Situated along the southern coast of the island of Islay, Ardbeg Distillery was founded in 1815 by the MacDougall Family. By the end of the 19th century, nearly one-third of the population of the island was employed at the distillery, which became notorious for producing some of the boldest and most robust Scotch whisky in the industry. Today, the distillery remains a testament to Scottish innovation and heritage.

Ardbeg Uigeadail (pronounced "Oog-a-dal" ) Single Malt Scotch Whisky takes its name from Loch Uigeadail, which is situated 800 feet above sea level and remains the only source of pure water for the distillery. "It's one of the raw materials we must have," says Michael Heads, Ardbeg's Distillery Manager, of the water sourced from the loch. "Loch Uigeadail translates as " the dark place' — it's got very deep, peaty water in it and it's what we require for making our bold whisky. So it's vitally important."

Ardbeg Corryvreckan replaced the Airigh Nam Beist in the Ardbeg lineup in 2009. Corryvreckan is created from a mixture of “French Oak” casks which, rumor has, includes some Burgundy wine casks and is named after the second largest whirlpool in the world (located north of Jura which is north of Islay). It’s a powerful and brutish whisky with subtle notes and undertones that move and shift like the undercurrent that surrounds it’s namesake.

Bottled at a pounding 114.2 proof this dense dram brings a lot of multilayered facets with it and like most whiskies bottled above 45% it benefits from a bit of water to help unlock the true potential it holds. Just a light splash will get this whisky churning, starting a chain reaction that opens the whisky and allows notes that were previously hidden deep to float to the surface. A fine dram indeed.

Ardbeg An Oa is named after the Mull of Oa on the Kildalton coast in the south west of Islay. In the summer of 2017 it was the first addition to Ardbeg’s core range in the last eight years.

The recipe is based on a combination of seven different types of casks: Pedro Ximénez casks, heavily charred virgin oak and first-fill bourbon casks are the most important. These have been married in a large French oak vat housed in The Gathering Room at the distillery.

Ardbeg An Oa is designed to be on the lighter end of the core range, below the Ardbeg 10 Years, Corryvreckan and Uigaedail.Ardbeg An Oa
(46,6%, OB 2017)
Nose: fresh with a mezcal-like straightforwardness at first, a bit uncommon for Ardbeg. However it develops a good balance of sweet and dry aromas. Sweet lemons, fennel seeds, acrid peat smoke and vanilla. Not much PX to be found, the virgin oak being a bit louder in any case. Some seaweed and menthol. Mouth: slightly thin, with the same acrid toasted notes, a faint tarry note and then some wood spices (pepper, ginger) and chocolate. Black tea. Grapefruit. Finish: okay, on spicy notes (peppercorns, clove), light chocolate and bonfire smoke.

No alcohol to the United States of America.

    I'm sorry you are disappointed. But you didn't read the product description well, it clearly states the bottles are 20 cl. You accuse me of fraude and that is not true and unfair.

    Did you really think you can get 5 large bottles of single malt scotch whisky for 97 euro's?

    Då jag inte fått min leverans än så tycker jag att det tagit alldeles för lång tid. 20 dagar har gått sedan jag betalade. Det tog säljaren två veckor att skicka paketen...

    Hello Roger,

    I sent the package 3 days after you paid. Unfortunately I cannot do anything about how fast or slow the postal services act. You cannot blame me for that.

    The track & trace shows that your parcel is waiting for you at the pick-up location since nov. 7th.

    Kind Regards,
