Oban 18 Year
Peated Single Malt
Oban // Highlands, Scotland
Oban Distillery, sitting at the gateway to the isles in the northwest of Scotland, was converted from a brewery in 1794 starting a rich history of single malt whiskey production in the classic Highlands style. Their whiskey is made using 100% malted barley, twice-distilled through 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. This bottling enjoys 18 long years of beauty rest in an oak cask and is released at 86 proof.

"On the nose this single malt delivers bright citrus zest, light raw honey, and orange marmalade, with a crisp kiss of sea-spray brininess. Upon first sip, rich spicy oak, warm spiced cider, salted caramel, and golden delicious apples, are mingled with hints of the nearby sea with just a touch of seaweed. The finish is long and oily with warm honey-drizzled fruit notes that elude to its long wait in barrels. "
