A well-aged Oban, released as part of the annual Diageo Special Releases in 2018. This 21-year-old cask strength whisky was matured in refill European-oak butts, giving the fruity whisky a jacket of rich sherry cask character.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting note by Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange

    Nose: Olive oil and oranges, hints of ozone and a touch of greenness – Maureen reckons pea pods. More orangey notes develop: candied flesh and spiced peel. Chalky sweets pop-up Refreshers, Love Hearts and a hint of Parma Violet.

    Palate: The sweets are back – Love Hearts and Refreshers lead. Sour orange zest and stewed apple follow, accompanied by darker notes: liquorice and chocolate.

    Finish: Chocolate and waxed apples start, with oranges and spice lingering.

    Comment: Orangey, as Obans often are, but packed with a sweetshop of flavour on top. It doesn't get too much though, as the European-oak keeps things in check with some darker flavours.
