Oban Distillers Edition 1999 Fino Montilla 70cl 43°
When reaching bottling age, each Classic Malt undergoes a "cask finish" for another 6 months, in casks originating from the Iberian Peninsula, and becomes then a Distillers Edition.
The founders of Oban distillery were entrepreneurs importing and exporting goods that could match a demand on the market. They would certainly have approved of the Spanish influence of the Fino Montilla Sherry finish, bolstering the malt elegance with subtle wood notes. The light and dry scent of the Andalusian Fino Montilla cask wood is a natural match to the warm fullness of Oban's rich flavours.
An sublime spirit, wonderfully complex and distinguished: a flavoursome nose overflowing with ripe fruits, completed by a hint of salt and notes of caramelised, toasty malt.
For your information, our vintages regularly change.

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.
