Oban 12 Years Old Diageo Special Releases 2021 is a soft and full-bodied single malt with notes of lemon zest, brine, heather honey, milk chocolate and spicy oak. It matured for 12 years in freshy charred American oak casks and is bottled at a cask strength of 56.2%. Oban 12 Years Old Diageo Special Releases 2021 is part of the 2021 edition of the highly-anticipated annual Diageo Special Releases. This year’s theme is Legends Untold. Every bottle is connected to a mythical creature and tells a legendary story about the distillery. The stunning labels and tubes are designed by renowned digital illustrator Ken Taylor. And as if that isn’t cool enough already, each whisky’s story is brought to life with a unique augmented reality experience, accessible through a QR code on the bottle. The Oban distillery is located right on the border between the West Highlands and the Hebrides Islands, and its whisky has both Highland and island characteristics. This is represented in The Tale of Twin Foxes, who possess opposing qualities yet keep each other in perfect balance.
