14 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky
“A long-standing favourite with a very distinctive profile.” – Whisky Advocate
Oban’s multi-award-winning 14 Year Old is a classic and a true icon among the flagship whiskies of Scotland. It doesn’t hurt that they put an extra couple of years on their entry-level Scotch compared to their rivals, which gives it much more richness and complexity than its counterparts. Full and oily, this dram reminds us of Christmas cake wrapped in almond marzipan, hot cross buns, granola, pine forests, coastal breezes, seaweed, dried wildflowers, toffee apples, menthol, chocolate-coated orange peel and a trace of woodsmoke. Managing to be both immensely warming and deeply refreshing at the same time, there are few whiskies better for charging the hip flask with or for enjoying after a long day in the great outdoors.
Representing one of Scotland’s smallest but most well-known and loved 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 tiniest 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.
