Oban Single Malt
Oban's attractive West Highland character reflects its location, revealing aspects of both the Highland and the Island styles. Elegant and glowing, it marries the sea air character of the Island malts of the soft, richly fruit style of the highland, creating its own rich tasting West Highland malt. The stills here are among the smallest in Scotland. The cramped nature of the site places severe limits on production, which in turn means that demand for Obans richly appreciated malt is always likely to exceed supply. Few malts were ever made in the Western Highlands and only two now remain. Oban, like its home, remains their capital.
