Description

Oban 14 Year Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Oban Single Malt Whisky is made using 100% barley, which is malted to the distillery's exact specifications. After the barley is malted, it is partially germinated and gently dried over a peat kiln, giving it a slightly smoky, malty flavor profile. Then, the malted barley is mashed and fermented before being twice-distilled through Oban's lantern-shaped copper-pot stills. The stills are among the smallest in Scotland, and limit Oban's production to just 650,000 liters of whisky annually.

Following distillation, Oban 14 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky is aged for 14 years in oak casks. During this beautyrest, the whisky is touched by its unique environment and geography — the warm, salty Gulf Stream and mild, temperate climate of Oban are reflected in the whisky. Oban 14 Year Old Single Malt Whisky earned a Gold Medal at the 2013 International Wine & Spirit Competition, is the core expression of this storied distillery which has been operating for over 200 years. 

Tasting Notes

 As a result of the distillery's unique stills and geography, the whisky has an olive gold color and a rich, sweet aroma filled with lemons, pears and oranges, as well as sea-salt and a light peatiness. The palate is full-bodied and extremely dry, with notes of dried figs and honey, and leads to a soft, oaky finish.
