At Oscars Pub, single malt scotch is a big deal. we’re Scottish owned, so we like to think we know a thing or two about it!
Bruichladdich Yellow Submarine (1991)
This hails from a small distillery on the isle of islay. Bruichladdich have turned out an impressive list of limited edition bottlings, this one inspired by the discovery of a lost yellow submarine off islay’s coast. A malty & wine scotch it has aromas of melon & freshly cut grass. The finish is short, simple & clean, w/ some licorice.
This distillery draws its water from the same source which fed the first public brewery in Scotland, from where king james iv purchased beer to celebrate his coronation in 1488. this scotch has an intense, malty & grassy flavour which then shifts to bakery aromas of almond & pear tart.
Oban (14 Year Old)
Perhaps the oldest distillery in continuous operation, this is salty & cereal w/ honey & malt notes, slightly abrasive, grainy texture, notes of caramel. A lot of toffee & some warmth in the finish.
Macallan (12 Year Old)
Sometimes referred to as the “rolls-royce of single malts”, this is exclusively matured in sherry oak casks that are imported from Jerez, Spain. these specially-selected casks give a rich golden color & a complex taste that includes hints of dried fruits, spice, & chocolate orange.
