Oban 21 Year Old
 57.9%   |    70cl

A very special and rare extra-mature Oban, unusually matured in refill European oak butts, that’s quite ethereal and especially maritime in nature.

Taste the character and craft in every drop.

A whole range of senses as it shows malt, fruit, oak, peat and sea-air.

Relatively short, spicy and cooling.

Information

Make: Oban

Age: 21 years old, distilled in 1996

Strength: 57.9% ABV

Region: Highlands

Appearance

Full gold. Delicate beading.

Nose

A dry maritime aroma, with warm sand, dry seaweed and crystalline salt. Beyond this, fruitcake seen through peat, menthol, linseed oil, barley sugar, wet sand and charred timbers. In time, hints of toasted marshmallow and lemon curd on wholemeal toast.

Palate

Powerful, with a creamy texture, and surprisingly sweet, with some salt. Intense, cooling and coating. Then drying, with cocoa powder, toasted coconut, spearmint and menthol; behind this, aniseed around a hazelnut nougat core.

Finish

Spicy and cooling, yet also sweetly warming, with menthol and subtle smoke; traces of ash and ginger, a sandy note, and a hint of charred grass on a sea breeze.
