If you’re into rare malts, then they don’t come much rarer than this 21-Year old extra-mature Oban which was released as part of DIAGEO's 2018 Special Release range. Bottled at cask strength it has been unusually matured in refill European oak butt giving it a rather ethereal and especially maritime nature. A must for fan's of this iconic west-highland distillery.
Flavour Profile: Nose
Green & jazzy, fresh leaves & newly cut grass open with style. A burst of zesty citrus & fuji apples ensue before exiting through a bouquet of florality.
Flavour Profile: Palate
Deep, rich red fruits open the palate. Blood orange & raspberry introduce keys of baked cinnamon spice, pepper & toasted nuts.
Flavour Profile: Finish
An epicly enduring finish of orange, spice & nuts. A subtle, sweet smoke is peppered with hints of warm sand & singed grass.
