Oban Distillery is the second-smallest distillery in the Diageo empire (Royal Lochnagar being the smallest) and one of the oldest, having been distilling whisky since 1794; it's so old that the town grew up around the distillery, rather than the distillery being built in the town. Its single malt is in the complex West Highland style: rich and fruity, with hints of salt and smoke. The 14-year-old single malt attracts enthusiastic but wildly diverse tasting notes, with comments like 'mulled berries', 'smoked rope' and 'salt toffee'. A limited Distillers Edition has a similar character, varying slightly from bottling to bottling.

  • Open since: 1794
