Oban 14 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Located in the West Highlands, actually situated on the western seacoast of Scotland, Oban sits across the Firth of Lorn from the Isle of Mull. One of Diageo’s “Classic Malts”, its water comes from Loch Gleann a Bhearraidh, the town reservoir. This whole area is made up of old volcanic lava flow rock. Steel mash tun, larch washbacks, and only two small “lamp glass”-shaped stills with traditional wooden worm tubs.
A classic from the western Highlands this fruity malt offers a whiff of heather and more than a hint of smoke. The nose speaks of the sea with mineral, brine, and smoke playing alongside of mild maltiness; the palate is rich with dried fig, orange, sweet malty flavor and smoke followed by a long finish with a hint of salt.
