Oban 21 Year Cask Strength
Peated Single Malt
Oban // Highlands, Scotland
Aged in rejuvenated American oak and 2nd-fill sherry casks this west Highland single malt is a treat. Oban has a rich history older than the town that bears its name; the distillery was established in 1794 while the town was officially known as Oban in 1811. It has only 2 pot stills making it one the smallest but most respected in Scotland. It has only been silent for 9 of its over 200 year history. Only 2860 bottles were released of which I'm drinking from no. 1329.
Peated Single Malt100% malted barley from a single distillery. Dried with peat.

"As this is cask strength, it strikes me a bit hot on the nose, but that quickly subsides to some lovely salt air and a bit of peppered caramel. The mouth-feel is soft but assertive, salty and crisp with a bit of cucumber. Once the vegetation subsides a very bold nuttiness ensues with rich roasted chestnuts. If the bar you are in has this, please don’t let it sit on the shelf, drink it! "
