SIP IT GOOD
There are moments in life when nothing but a Scotch will do. You’ll want to make it a single malt. And one full of smoke and warmth and Gaelic ruggedness at that. The Ardbeg distillery on the isle of Islay has released its first new (permanent) expression in a decade: the 10-year-old An Oa contains liquids matured in both sherry and bourbon casks and then left to meld in a special “gathering vat”.
Rich, peaty, caramelly and oh so good for the soul.
