Whisky Type: Single Malt
Age: 14 Year Old

Bottle Size: 700ml
One of the oldest and most celebrated distilleries in Scotland, Oban, first started exporting bottles through its famous West Highland doors back in 1794. This 14-Year-Old bottle has won Gold Awards in just about every competition it has entered and is made in the same age-old traditional ways as those original whiskies over 200 years ago. As Oban is close to the fishing town of Argyle, there are notes of sea and seaweed, whilst the palate is as thick as the region’s accent.
Flavour Profile: Nose
Salty spray, freshly lit fires on the beach & driftwood. There is an expected & prevailing smokiness throughout & a tender touch of sweetness like candied fruit to inhale.
Flavour Profile: Palate
Viscous & full with flutters of citrus zest & a smooth velvety sweetness. Intertwined, smoke & seaweed dance together with rich toasted cereal & oak prevailing until the end.
Flavour Profile: Finish
Filled with dried fruits, old spices & oaky overtones, the finish is timely & mature.
