21 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky Special Release 2018
Oban is one of those classic malts that you forget about from time to time. But then when you taste it again it feels like you’ve come home and you wonder why on earth you left in the first place.
Unveiled as part of the Diageo Special Releases 2018, this expression has been matured in refill European oak butts and despite its age it’s lively and energetic. Think pea pods, satsumas, mown summer lawns, meadows, freshly squeezed orange juice, dried apricots, golden raisins, tangy Scottish raspberries, spiced nuts and peppery kale. The limited edition 21 Year Old Oban Special Release 2018 is one of the most exciting and off-the-wall of this line-up and we love it.
Representing one of Scotland's smallest but most well-known distilleries, Oban is situated on the frontier between the West Highlands and the Islands. Its mild, temperate climate, warmed by the Gulf Stream, sets it apart in a region known for its rugged natural beauty. The proximity to the coast lends Oban some of that salted character for which the Islands are renowned. The whisky itself owes its rich and rewarding Highland character to its very long fermentation process. The tiny lamp glass-shaped copper pot stills that make Oban’s Scotch are among the smallest in Scotland, and the liquor they distil is slowly condensed in wooden worm tubs outside among the rooftops, exposed to the salted sea air, bringing a distinct depth of flavour said to go very well with salted caramel.
