Oban 18 Year Single Malt Scotch
Oban lies between the fruity mainland and smoky island styles of whiskey. The 18 Year Old is only available in the United States. The extra years of maturation give it a mellow, more developed flavor. For example, the sweeter notes of ripe banana and toasted tea-cake found subtly in the 14 Year are amplified here. The rich, rounded sweetness is perfectly balanced by mysterious, dry hunts of sea salt and smoky malt, with a long, textured finish of cocoa and seaweed.
