Description

whiskey oban 11 yo "the soul of calypso" special release 2023

Oban 11

A heated bustle of flavors pulsates with hints of tropical fruit and exotic sea breeze. Finished in Caribbean Pot Still Rum casks Inspired by the vibrant mix of rhythms at the beating heart of calypso, our Malt Master sought to refine this vivid expression of Oban in casks that have previously held Caribbean Pot Still rum. The vibrant combination evokes unexpected notes of mango and sugar cane, which build on Oban itself a perfect fusion with whiskey. A golden touch announces the summer sun while a fresh sea breeze aroma, combined with citric notes and enriched with tropical fruit and spices, quickly takes us to images of carnival.

Limited edition

Oban 11 Year Old Special Release 2023 The Soul of Calypso is a Scotch whiskey label belonging to the Special Releases that Diageo - the company that owns Oban and many other Scottish distilleries - offers every year to celebrate its products. These Special Releases are all in limited edition and with peculiar characteristics, revealing new aspects of the distilleries of origin with peculiar refinements and higher alcohol content. In this case Oban 11 Year Old Special Release 2023 The Soul of Calypso has a final refinement in barrels that have contained Pot Still Caribbean rum, a rather rare event for Oban, a distillery that has always defended tradition and with very few variations on the classic branded malt Oban.

Nose: Mild and fresh, the main notes are maritime, iodine, with a sweeter and more tropical background, mango and lemon
