Default Opened an An Oa

A pleasant enough dram, silky, much silkier than Ardbeg 10. I purposely had some Ardie 10 immediately before the An Oa and the An Oa doesn't have as much flavor and backbone as the 10 IMO. Seems a bit hollow.

Will have to start with the An Oa then follow with the 10 next time.

I really enjoyed my bottle of An Oa, but not really wanting to be an Ardbeg collector, I think that a bottle of 10 and one of Corryvreckan pretty well covers my bases.

Cool

I would agree Peat.
Just had the An Oa first then the 10. The An Oa has a somewhat better flavor (nothing to write home about though) and is definitely silkier.
The 10 has more flavor and it lingers longer where the An Oa flavor seems to fade too quickly.
Doubt I'll get another.
Ardbeg 10 is on sale in the Idaho liquor stores for $45 + 6% tax. One of the best deals in the country right now. I was tempted to buy more but I have 11 of them in my stash already.

BTW:
Did you know about this?

There is an Ardbeg promotional motor home driving around the USA offering samples of their whisky.
To get the specific locations you have to go to their website.

I need to pick up another bottle of Ardbeg 10 for that price!

Too bad the Ardbeg tour won't line up with my travels, but that's still pretty cool.
