Whisky Discovery #6

Oban 14 Year Old (43% abv, OB, Bottled +/- 2010 70cl)
Highland Single Malt Whisky
Circa £35 –£40

January's Official Bottle
This West Highland malt is still produced in the same unhurried, traditional fashion and this 14 year old is a classic dram from the distillery.

My next addition to the collection came from eBay and at just £23.00, I thought I got a bargain.

The nose is rich and smoky. The medicinal notes are quite evident with notes of the sea; seaweed, tarry ropes. There are notes of cut hay and wood smoke rising with a gentle estery sweetness. The palate is thick and full. Notes of citrus with smooth sweetness.
