Ardbeg AN OA The BBQ Smoker Edition Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Hunt down a grill and gather your ancestors, because the Ardbeg BBQ Smoker is bringing the everyday cookout into a new age!
This gift pack includes one BBQ Smoker and one bottle of Ardbeg An Oa – the perfect spirit for sippin’ and tearin’. Small but mighty, the smoker lets you surround your food with smoke in just a few easy steps. Simply fill the puck with wood chips, lay it at the back of your grill, wait until your BBQ is sufficiently smoky, place your food around the puck, smoke it out some more, and voilà!
Once your food is smoked, cooked, and practically falling off the bone, all that’s left to do is plate up and pair with a delectably smooth dram of Ardbeg An Oa.
Color: Light Gold
Aroma: Rounded and smoky – like burning Applewood – with creamy toffee, aniseed, treacle and dates. A curious suggestion of juicy fruits, such as peach and banana. With a drop of water, reminders of Ardbeg’s classic fragrance – lime, pine resin, fennel, saddle soap and tar. A gentle waxiness, such as fragrant candle wax, and hints of smoked herbs. An Oa gives a final subtle reminder of the sea with briny notes and seaweed, accompanied by a delectable creaminess.
Tates: A smooth, creamy texture leads into a bold syrupy sweetness, flavours of milk chocolate, treacle toffee, aniseed, orange and smoky tea leaves. Gentle, sweet spices (nutmeg & cinnamon), some cigar smoke, and a unique note of grilled artichokes. Wood is always present in the spirit, gently nutty and reminiscent of a carpenter’s workshop.
Finish: Lingering, seductive, gentle yet intense, with flavours of aniseed, hickory and subtle smoke.
ARDBEG AN OA
Ardbeg An Oa’s rounded and subtly smoky aromas make it the prime spirit for toasting by the BBQ. With notes of thick cigar smoke, roasted tea leaves and grilled artichokes, this whisky is the perfectly peaty dance partner for your smoky culinary creations.
