Oban 18 year old whisky was only ever bottled for the US market, and becoming ever increasingly hard to find as it was discontinued in 2018.
Nose: Sweet notes of honey and toffee mingle with the subtle embrace of maritime sea breeze. Hints of brine and a delicate waft of smoke intertwine with dried fruit aromas, such as raisins and apricots. A touch of oak brings a sense of maturity and balance to the bouquet.
Palate: The honeyed sweetness continues, accompanied by layers of rich caramel and dark chocolate, providing a luxurious mouthfeel. Orchard fruits come forth, with ripe apples and pears alongside a gentle spiciness that hints at cloves and black pepper. The maritime character persists, with a subtle salinity that reminds you of the sea.
Finish: The finish is long and rewarding with a touch of dried herbs.
Please note this is a 20cl/200ml size bottle.
