Oban 10 Years Old Special Release 2022 70cl 57.1°

Distillery : Oban / Country : Scotland / Reference: : 25209

This year, Diageo unveils eight Cask Strength Single Malt bottlings as part of its new 2022 Special Release collection.

For this Oban bottling, Diageo opted for maturation in new and refill American oak barrels before finishing in ex-Sherry and Amontillado barrels.

Behind a creamy texture, we are transported to the port of Oban with its maritime influence. Maturation in sherry and Amontillado casks brings light vine flavours awakened by the liveliness of the spices and a hint of smoke.

The artwork on this bottle is reminiscent of the twinkling lights of the Northern Lights that illuminate the coastal town on an autumn night. The distillery is symbolized by a lively and energetic celestial creature that brings its dynamism to Oban Bay.

The unique character and quality of Oban whiskies ranked the distillery in the Classic Malts Selection.

Crossing point to the Hebrides, Oban is a well-protected harbour making the city the capital of the West Highlands but also the natural link between the great land and the islands. Founded in 1794, the Oban distillery has been established by the Stevenson brothers. Partly redesigned in the 1890, it is still one of the oldest and smallest distilleries of Scotland.

Engulfed in the small strip of land between the mountains and the sea, the small and lively town of Oban huddled on the distillery. This geographical impediment explains why the distillery never spread and had troubles meeting a growing demand.

The unique character and quality of Oban whiskies ranked the distillery in the Classic Malts Selection. Created more than 20 years ago, this selection recognises Single Malts crafted in the tradition of iconic distilleries, and offers the most impressive whisky styles Scotland has to offer.

Colour: pale gold and ethereal.

Nose: sweet, the top notes are weak at first but then stand out, interspersed with salty maritime notes, edible seaweed and fresh sea air. A light smoke appears, infused with suggestions of olive oil and a light citrus note.

Palate: the texture is smooth and creamy, while the wine and fruit flavours carry hints of sweet violets and spicy plums. The fruit is balanced by a lively spiciness with a hint of salt, then more flamboyant chilli.

Finish: long and surprisingly peppery, spreading a sweet memory of chilli in the maritime aftertaste.
