A signature Oban, but with a twist. This Oban 12 Year Old was matured in freshly charred American virgin oak casks. Distilled in Oban in 2008, this dram comes in at a hearty 56.2% abv cask strength. Like all expressions within this Special Releases Collection, it is free from artificial colouration and chill filtration. A skilful weaving between Highland and Island styles of single malt, this is sure to set the tastebuds of any Oban whisky fan alight.
Expect a strong maritime presence on the nose, with notes of seaweed and sea salt combining with sweet chilli sauce. The palate is fruity, smooth, and citrus-sweet, with lingering notes of sea salt salinity. The finish is long, smooth, and pleasantly warming.
