Highland Region — Oban
Oban 14 years old 43%
Oban 14 Year is a West Highland Malt and a real classic in its own right. Both on the nose and the palate it comes across as a marriage of the slightly salty coastal character and a medley of ripe fruitsalad flavours, with a touch of golden syrup drizzled on top and a subtle smokyness.
