The Whisky 14-year-old Oban Single Malt is one of the most famous and typical expressions of the Scottish Highlands. Its characteristic marine and malty aromas are enlivened by notes of noble woods and a hint of peat smoke. The taste is full and dense, rich and complex
The 14-Year-Old Single Malt Whisky from the Oban distillery is produced in the town of the same name, located on the coast of the Western Highlands of Scotland. The small town grew around the distillery, founded in 1794. Since then, Oban distillery's whiskies have become renowned worldwide and have established themselves among enthusiasts as one of Scotland's finest excellences. The 14-Year-Old Single Malt is an intense whisky with a delicate and slightly peaty taste. Its profile is softer and gentler than the classic spirits from the famous Isle of Islay, catering to those who seek elegance and finesse with a distant memory of smokiness and brininess without these particular aromatic notes becoming overly dominant.
The Oban 14-Year-Old is crafted using only one type of malt and is skillfully distilled in a discontinuous still, following the ancient Scottish tradition. The Single Malt whisky matures for a remarkable 14 years in oak casks before being bottled and brought to market. This extended maturation period serves to enrich the distillate's bouquet with mature notes, making it more complex, smooth, and alluring.
The 14-Year-Old Single Malt boasts a golden yellow hue with subtle amber reflections. It opens up to fruity and citrusy aromas on the nose, with a backdrop of malt adorned with delicate peaty, spicy, and maritime sensations. The taste is well-balanced, featuring fruity flavours, hints of honey and dried fruits, woody and spicy undertones, iodine and smoky traces characteristic of the Scottish coast. It perfectly combines refined smoothness with drier, saline, and peaty notes.
