About Oban 18 Year Old Limited Edition Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Oban Single Malt Whisky is made using 100% barley, which is malted to the distillery's exact specifications. After the barley is malted, it is partially germinated and gently dried over a peat kiln, giving it a slightly smoky, malty flavor profile. Then, the malted barley is mashed and fermented before being twice-distilled through Oban's lantern-shaped copper-pot stills. The stills are among the smallest in Scotland, and limit Oban's production to just 650,000 liters of whisky annually.

Following distillation, Oban Limited Edition 18 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky is aged for 18 years in oak casks. During this beautyrest, the whisky is touched by its unique environment and geography — the warm, salty Gulf Stream and mild, temperate climate of Oban are reflected in the whisky. As a result of the distillery's unique stills and geography, the whisky has an aroma of citrus fruit, crisp sea breeze and salty tang that give way to notes of dried spices, seaweed and oak on the palate. The finish is soft and elegant, with touches of smoke and fruit set against a slightly oily background.

Oban Limited Edition 18 Year Old Single Malt Whisky earned the Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, and earned a score of 91 points from Whisky Advocate.

About Oban

After moving with their widowed mother to the small port city of Oban (situated in northwest Scotland), John and Hugh Stevenson took jobs building and repairing boats at the city's boatyard, a trade they had learned from their late father. In the 1790s, the brothers left their boat-making jobs and founded a brewery in the city. In 1794, they converted their brewery into Oban Distillery, one of the oldest and most prestigious distilleries in Scotland.

For nearly a century, Oban Distillery remained in the hands of the Stevenson family. In 1883, however, J. Walter Higgin purchased the distillery and began renovations. While Higgin renovated both the distillery's equipment and structure, he did so piecemeal in order to ensure that the distillery was able to meet the uninterrupted demand for its whisky. Today, over 100 years later, Oban Distillery remains substantially the same as it was after Higgin's refurbishment.

About Scotch

Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)


Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
