After the last guest from New Zealand today, something classic, Oban 14 years old. The distillery is located in the center of the city of the same name in the western Highlands and was founded in 1794. Two stills work there. The distillery is owned by Diageo. Single Malt is part of a representative series of the Classic Malts of Scotland. Oban city is also a self-proclaimed seafood capital of Scotland. They have a wide selection, everything is fresh and tasty.
My whisky is 14 years old, 43% ABV and is a base product from this distillery.
N: ripe fruits – apples, peaches, green tea, vegetables such as celery, interesting because I feel that here is also parsley, wet ground and a bit of salt, then an orange peel, acidity and freshness appears, further slightly sweet with vanilla, also a touch of smoke,
T: moderate sparking in the mouth, so we have a slight spicyness, different types of ripe apples – green and red, peaches and a touch of orange, delicate notes of oak with bitterness, ending quite sweet,
F: rather long with fruits, sweet and dry.
Oban 14 years old has an interesting character, there is everything bit by bit with balanced style. Generally, I like it.
