Oban - 14 Year Old Montilla Fino Finish, Distilled 1997Highland Single Malt Whisky
The Western Highland style of Malt is epitomized by Oban's gentle sweetness and surprising richness of palate and finish. The peatiness of the Islands it faces across the Firth of Lorn is softened by the influences of the Highlands at its back. To underline its sea-laced flavours, Oban's Master Distiller has chosen Montilla Fino. This dry, delicate cask-wood beautifully enhances Oban's distinctively graceful style.
