Oban Distillers Edition Scotch Whiskey
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.
This is the 1998 vintage Oban Distillers Edition, which is given a finishing period in Montilla Fino casks for an interesting depth of flavor. An excellent and deeply intriguing expression of Highland single malt Scotch whisky. Bottled in 2013
