Oban

Distiller's Edition Single Malt Scotch Whisky

£95.50

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 renown, though this is as gentle as the soft rains which give the fishing town its lush surrounds. Balancing autumn fruits and sea air, Oban whisky 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 distill 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.

This Distiller’s Edition is rather uniquely finished in Montilla Fino fortified wine casks, for additional depth and complexity. The resulting whisky impresses with aromas of sea salt, crushed grapes, orange zest and hints of smoke. On the palate, this massively complex whisky reveals layers of rich fruitcake notes, along with coffee, oak and a salty tang.
