Oban Distillery takes its name from the town where the Highlands meet the Islands. Two brothers, the Stevensons settled here in 1778 and greatly enriched the hamlet, as it was then, with their business activities ranging from slate quarrying to shipbuilding. In 1794 Hugh Stevenson built the Oban Distillery, hiring an experienced Lowland distiller to manage the whole operation and distill oban single malt scotch. Nestling beneath the steep cliff that overlooks Oban, one of Scotland’s oldest sources of single malt whisky is but a stone’s throw from the sea. This coastal location is accurately reflected by the character of the Oban 14 year old single malt whisky. At Oban Distillery you can see the distillers at work crafting a rich, sweet malt whisky with a subtle hint of sea salt and peaty smokiness.
Deep gold in colour. fragrant, sweet, with a whiff of smoke. Smooth, medium, rich. The palate is round, warming, malty, with delicate peaty undertones; while the Finish: long, fruity and smooth, with an afterglow like a Western Highland twilight.
