Oban Aged 14 Years Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
Volume: 700ml ABV: 43% Age: 14 Years Old Country: Scotland
Oban was just a small fishing village when the brothers Stevenson, who had had a hand in the building of Tobermory on Mull, founded the distillery on the site of a former brewery and then set about expanding Oban by establishing a tannery, a boating yard and other house building schemes. The distillery, founded in 1794 predates the town. The town literally grew around the distillery, hemming it in and making any future expansion plans obsolete. Hence, the distillery is fairly small (in the Diageo group it’s the second smallest, the second most frequented, the fifth best selling single malt and their best selling malt in U.S.A. ). With such small production all of the make is destined for single malt bottling.
One of Diageo’s ‘Classic Malt’ Series leads us to this well known dram loved the world over. It oozes West Highland character and delivers a whiff of heather, a hint of smoke and palate of fruits.
