Description

Oban 12 Year Old Special Release 2021

A cask strength 12 year old Oban, aged in Bourbon casks and refill casks. This is part of the Diageo 2021 Special Releases. A fruity, spicy dram. Oban is one of the few older distilleries in the middle of a town centre, because Oban the town was built around the distillery.

Official Tasting Notes

Nose: Mellow, with elusive yet unmistakeably maritime top notes of crispy edible seaweed, crystal salt and coarse black pepper on a wooden trencher, perhaps accompanied by very lightly smoked fillets of white fish. After a while a spoonful of sweet chilli sauce is added to the platter while with a drop of water, light olive oil becomes the top note. Palate: Very smooth, soft and mouth-filling in texture, the taste is fruity and lightly citrus-sweet, balanced by a pinch of salt mid-palate and an insistent yet never overpowering spiciness from the fresh-charred casks. The effect is lush and vigorous, with a great balance between crunchy wood spice and fresh, fruity distillery character. Staying sweet throughout, it is delicious straight, while a dash of water lightly rounds the flavours, bringing up the fruity notes.
