Oban’s coveted and awarded Distiller’s Edition Single Malt aged to perfection and finished in Sherry casks.

Long before Oban was a lovely seaside resort town on the West Coast of Scotland, John and Hugh Stevenson built their first still house there in 1794. So the town literally grew up around the Whisky — which is the way it should be if you ask us. It sits on the western shore facing Islay and the Spirit they produce is influenced by both the Highlands and the island. The blokes at Oban have only one wash and one Spirit still — the total capacity of the distillery is 650k liters — tiny by modern standards. So even though they are owned by the corporate giant Diageo, they are small enough to be left alone to do their good work in peace. Oban is considered one of the classic malts of Scotland — a virtual national treasure.

Year after year, Oban Distillers Edition keeps delivering one of the finest Islay Single Malts you can find. The specifications tell the tale. This year’s release, Oban Distillers Edition 2019 is aged fourteen years in oak. Then, select casks are finished in first-fill ex-Montilla Fino Sherry casks. the results are simply amazing if you ask us. The dram has Highland fruitiness, a mere whiff of salty Islay peat, and the delectable rancio notes that showcases the Sherry influence.

Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
